Explorer service, repair, refurbish and finish a wide range of craft including the building of new pontoons for rigid hull inflatable boats.


Retubing of pontoons is a highly sought after service at Explorer, as we see many PVC tubed craft requiring a retube due to UV damage. We specialise in the use of Orca© Hypalon tubing sourced from Pennel & Flipo in Belgium ensures your boat is as resistant as it can be to UV damage, abrasion and everyday wear and tear. Your new inflatable tubing can come in a wide range of colours and feature an exhaustive list of add-ons including rubbing strips, grab handles, man-line ropes and bow fair-lead with cleat and roller. We also use stencil cut detailing and can ensure your previous detail specifications are recreated or apply new detail as appropriate. Our team are also experienced in the repair and retubing of PVC and TPU pontoons.

While Explorer’s core focus is the production of new Jet Tenders and recreational RIBs, we are always available to assist with boat repairs – whether that be to the inflatable tube, hull or interior. Our small team of craftspeople are adept at repairing and refurbishing fibreglass hulls to a high standard, ensuring your safety and comfort on the water.  Our workshop houses a wide range of parts and accessories should something need replacing and we have a wide range of suppliers from whom we can source the best quality componentry for your boat.  We know how inconvenient it is when you can’t get out on the water, so we work hard to turn around your repairs in a timely fashion.
