Ship Repairs and Marine Engineering
Joshua Preston operates a diversified marine engineering business from Drakewalls in Cornwall. Joshua Preston Ship Support Services was commenced in 1981 and concerned itself mainly with the reactivation and delivery of ships on a world wide basis. The company would do the entire operation with their own crews sourcing spare parts and preparing the vessel for either their new owner or delivery to ship breakers. Joshua Preston Ship Repairs, now under the title of Joshua Preston Marine and Heavy Engineers, is still active. All ship repair staff are ex-seagoing personnel and all have a vast knowledge of slow, medium and high speed diesel engines, electrical and hydraulic repairs are also catered for and thus the entire ship systems are encompassed in our operations.
Our engineers are mainly all ex Merchant Navy Officiers with a wealth of experience and are able to assist ships staff in routine maintenance and necessary works in conjunction with all major Classification Societies.
On the following pages we will provide an overview of the different marine services we offer.
Joshua Preston Marine is also the South West distributor of the Roto Dock pontoon system (see picture below).
