The Little Yard with the Big Reputation!

Big enough to Cope, small enough to care!


Bucklers Hard Boat Builders Ltd (BHBB) offer a full range of boat yard services from their base in Hythe Marina and the sales office in on the banks of the River Beaulieu at The Agamemnon Boat Yard, right in the heart of the New Forest.

The picturesque location od Beaulieu belies the fact that the Agamemnon Yard is steeped in maritime history, with the building of some 50 wooden warships from the 1740s to the beginning of the 19th century. One such ship built at Bucklers Hard was the famous 64-gun of-the-line HMS Agamemnon, commanded by a young Captain Horatio Nelson.


BHBB have been operating for over 45 years; during which time they have earned a reputation for high quality work and a meticulous attention-to-detail, which now also includes the company being approved to ISO9001:2008 for boat yard services and repairs.

That reputation has been also gained in part over the years, by building ‘Nelson Motor Yachts’ for the discerning owner who wished to create something special.

 BHBB have also built several of the Laurent Giles designed BH46 luxury cruising yachts.
