Explorer started as boat builders constructing fiberglass RIBs and Jet-powered Tenders, as demand grew we expanded our tubing services to the point that we now specialise in building and repairing ORCA Hypalon tubes.



Our team of skilled craftsmen boasts a remarkable combined experience of 75 years, making them highly proficient in handling any job, ranging from designing and building new tubes to complicated repairs. You can trust us to deliver exceptional results, backed by our extensive knowledge and expertise.
