Chippy Fine Yacht Woodwork

Jerry Bardoe has been running this highly respected carpentry shop in Antigua, for over 40 years, during which time they have worked on all the J-Class and many other high profile yachts - both charter and private.

They specialize in interior joinery, veneers, wooden spars, and cap / toe rail repairs. They work with quality marine ply, teak and other hardwoods; and can also work with Corian and Perspex. Bardoe and his team pride themselves on providing a professional service, with “no job being too small'. Chippy has a reputation for excellent work and thoroughly tackling any isolated quality problems that may arise. Along with their usual yacht cabinetry /carpentry work, Chippy has also re-caulked and re-laid major decking projects using Teak Deck System caulking.

In the off-season, when not doing refit work, Chippy and his team’s talent extend to a variety of projects such as: furniture restoration at Clarence House, the bespoke bar at Jumby Bay Hotel as well as the wooden structures and sails for the sugar mill at Betty’s Hope. 

Their workshop is located on the main road between the Catamaran Marina and Cobbs Cross, although they serve yachts in any location. Chippy also carries out warranty and insurance jobs for many of the major yacht builders. 

Captain's feedback in past seasons has been excellent: “Chippy did a really good job replacing veneer and floorboards.”

“We had some extensive carpentry work to do – that we put off doing in the Med. in the knowledge that we could thoroughly trust Chippy for both quality, and timing. Needless to say, he met our needs in every way.” 

“Chippy did an excellent job when replacing a hatch.”

“Top quality woodwork… they’re a totally reliable set up.”

“I really recommend Chippy Jerry and his team. He has some great carpenters, organized, clean, calm and good communicators. The sort of guys you want on your boat.”

“Athos has used Chippy for lots of interior and exterior projects ranging from stuck drawers to manufacturing very large fender boards to completely rebuilding our solid teak ornate barrel hatch (which exploded while RORC 600ing!), all completed faultlessly. He’s a legend in wood!”
