Southern Blast Ltd was established by myself (Paul Hockey) in 1998, it was noted by a particularly bad experience that there was no real company specialising in the removal of hull coatings followed by the coating process, this included osmosis treatments and after my own experience I decided to remortgage my house and start a business that catered for the yachtsmans needs precisely. 

I have always taken pride in achieving total customer satisfaction and this ethic continues today, last year we decided that our saying all this was not enough and the best proof of our work is in customer reviews-no other company like ours does this and we chose Checkatrade to help us with this and this really is a comforting success that you-the potential customer can rely on.

Always abreast of the latest antifoul removal, blasting and coating technologies and techniques, myself and my trusty team take a great pride in, and find a genuine satisfaction in our work.

Collectively the Southern Blast Ltd team has over 30 years experience of antifoul removal in Hampshire, Dorset and further afield (we travel all over the South of England and further if you’ve got the money). You’d be hard pressed to find a more reliable, professional and knowledgeable team anywhere in the UK. This is supported by the fact that Southern Blast Ltd are continuously the team of choice for most marine businesses based along the south coast.
