Two years ago, when Memel Werfe started, the founder, Henrikas Petrauskas formed a team of highly skilled professionals who share the same passion for beautiful classic boats. Motor or sail, it doesn’t matter: the boats have to be beautiful, unique and their task is to give them a new life.
Henrikas keeps an eye on the used boat market and as soon as he spots a beauty, he buys her, where ever she is, with the aim to restore, refit and rehome her. Henrikas will find a new owner who will enjoy sailing a unique boat and share his passion.
The refit is driven with sailing capabilities in mind. The shipyard uses modern materials and equipment so that the boats can be extensively used.
Memel Werfe employs 7 craftsmen and the team can work with wood, metal, mechanics, deck hardware…
The boats are refit in houses from A to Z.
A webcam allows the owner to keep up-to-date on the work carried out on his boat.
Memel Werfe can work on 2 to 3 boats at a time and up to 35 feet long.
Interiors feature modern and comfortable equipment. Classic does not mean impractical!
