Precision Shipwright Services (PSS) was formed in 1997 in Phuket Boat Lagoon. Starting with a team of four young Thai nationals, owner and founder Scott Bradley built a yacht refit business which became the most reputable in S/E Asia.
With yachts coming to the PSS yard from around the world for major refits and repairs, Scott needed to train local Thais to support a new type of business evolv-ing in Phuket, “yacht refits”.
A factory was built in Boat Lagoon and soon the business grew along with Scott and his small team of hard-working Thais.
Having worked on several hundred yachts since 1997, PSS continues to excel in quality refits.Below are short bios on the incredible PSS team:
