Some words from our customers and others...
"Working with Tristar on my very non-standard painted hybrid sailaway has been an absolute pleasure.... the boat has received many compliments from other professionals since it arrived home for its internal fitout. I'm extremely glad I chose them and look forward to cruising back to Redhill to show them the finished product one day." owner of Nancy David, March 2019
"It is no exaggeration to say that at least 10 people a day (every day) have said ' that's a beautiful boat' 'what a lovely colour' everywhere we went. We feel immensely proud of her and have sung your praises all over the cut. We've had loads of interest in the fact that she's hybrid, fully disabled accessible complete with lift and all electric. The bit that gets admired so much is your work..." owner of Nancy David, November 2020
