Interior and Exterior Boat Remodeling and Restoration Your boat can be restored to look like any new boat on the market!
Do you have an old boat that needs an update? Are you interested in buying a used boat but wished it had features of a newer boat? Your boat can be refitted to look like any new boat on the market. LandCraft Marine is one of the only facilities in the Midwest to offer complete boat remodeling and refitting (restoration) services! Our restorations mimic the look and feel of a new boat at a fraction of the cost.
LandCraft Marine specializes in fiberglass/gelcoat repair and can either rejuvenate existing gelcoat or re-gelcoat your boat, including the addition of new or custom paintwork or decals. Our woodworking department can restore existing wood or teak within the boat or replace rotted wood floors, seat frames and other wooden areas within the boat. LandCraft can even reconfigure the interior of the boat if you are interested in a more modern appeal; this can include new seating, upholstery, carpeting, etc. Please note that we do NOT perform mechanical services.
The chart below highlights the drastic increase in the cost of a new boat, and this has made purchasing a new boat undesirable for many people.
