A PEMBROKESHIRE luxury boat builder is focused on driving output after expertise support from the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) The backing of MAS Wales has seen Dale Motor Yachts reducing its man hours per boat by 10%- enabling the company to improve turnaround times for its clientele.

Dale Motor Yachts produces elite custom-built craft to its customers' specific requirements, and has built up a strong reputation for creating bespoke vessels. Features include teak decking, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable saloon seating, and retractable TV systems.

Director of the family run business Mike Reynolds said: "When our clients commission us to build a boat for them, they want to take delivery as soon as possible. MAS Wales has helped us reduce turnaround times, while maintaining the highest possible quality throughout the boat-building process."

Dale Motor Yachts' two key vessels are the Dale Classic 45 and the Dale Nelson 38.

Mr Reynolds said: "As our boats are totally handcrafted, no two are the same."

Dale Sailing Company was founded in 1961 by Mr Reynolds' father.

The company now operates from a four-acre site on Brunel Quay in Neyland, near Milford Haven, and employs 65 staff.

MAS is backed by the DTI and Welsh Assembly Government.
