Bosham Yacht Company is the last remaining boatyard in Bosham, established in 1987 as a continuation of Mariners Boatyard which was based on the Trippet and backed onto what is now the current site.
The business is owned and operated by Tim Cath, whose family have been based in Bosham since 1949. Tim has sailed on Chichester Harbour all his life and has worked on the harbour since 1998. Firstly for the Chichester Harbour Conservancy and then for eight years at Sparkes Marina on Hayling Island. When the opportunity came in 2007 to take over Bosham Yacht Company he leapt at the chance to work for himself with boats in Bosham. Tim is hands on in the business whether it be operating the crane, applying antifoul or doing the accounts. As such, the customers can rest assured that their boat will directly cared for by him.
Tim is assisted in the yard by Ross Collison and Finn McCormack. Both Ross and Finn have a a number of years experience in boat handling. Ross has previously worked on the water for Chichester Harbour Conservancy and Finn afloat and ashore on the water for Bosham Sailing Club.
