A wealth of practical information that will assist owners in the maintenance and repair of sailing and motor vessels .

This website presents detailed information on many subjects that confuse and mystify yacht owners. We have tried to present logical and informed studies of many of them. We are indebted to the many people who have supplied information and photographs to augment our words. The site is owned and run by the father and son team of Vyv and Owen Cox. More information is provided on the ‘About’ page.

TO CLARIFY – Cox engineering do not sell boat parts or equipment. We provide information and advice free of charge to boat owners.  Owen is the director of Planar heaters, who sell and install heating equipment for vehicles and yachts.

We are pleased to receive e-mail queries, photographs or comments on any technical aspects of yachting. See our contact page for details. Please note that only accept queries via the contact form on the contact page.
We also offer a consultancy service for engineering failure diagnosis, in which we can conduct analysis and act on your behalf in discussions with manufacturers, contractors and boatyards.
