Shipyard revived by maritime family firm

A Wirral shipyard has been brought back to life, with hopes of doubling job numbers over the coming year. The Bromborough slipway had been operated by McTay Marine since 1974, providing a range of maintenance and small shipbuilding services, but the operation went into liquidation earlier this year. Now a Bromborough maritime family business has stepped in to buy the freehold of the site, supported by Santander, and start ship repair and shipbuilding operations once again. Carmet Marine has been established by Carmet Tug, which was founded in 1971 and provided towage services on the Manchester Ship Canal and River Mersey. Captain Brett Metcalfe, who runs the business, said the new marine division will be able to offer a full range of services from repair, refurbishment and routine maintenance to building small vessels such as workboats or ferries.
