OUR STUDIO HAS HISTORY!
Emsworth is known for many things, but its connection to land-speed records and iconic engineering has recently been rediscovered at our studio, The Old Boathouse . This one-time garage has a very special past!
The boathouse was formerly owned by George Gray, a panelling expert from London who worked on Malcolm Campbell legendary Bluebird land-speed vehicles and the record breaking Railton Mobil Special, as well as creating the bodywork for the first Vanwall racing cars back in the 1950s. George’s talents also won him a contract to build Spitfire fuselages after the bombing of the factory in Southampton during World War Two, which he did at one of the many shadow factories set up along the south coast.
