Everything You Want to Know
E Jacobs and Sons Ltd. now have over 25 years experience in the fabrication and manufacture of our patented modular laying up cradles, world wide shipping cradles, and motor boat/power boat stands.
Originally Jacobs cradles were made of a rigid construction and though strong and robust,
the problems were apparent with transportation. Some cradle bases could be 4m wide and 6m long!
It was with this in mind that we designed a cradle which could be easily transported and also have a great degree of strength and adjustability to suit the numerous types of different hull configurations.
After much development work the Jacobs patented cradle was put into production.
We are highly regarded as one of the leading manufactures in the U.K and to date over 2500 modular patented cradles have been sold, mainly throughout the U.K and E.U. We have also shipped to the U.S, Australia, and Singapore.
We are one of the leading manufactures of motor boat and power boat stands with many hundreds sold over the last few years.
Unlike some of our competitors, all parts of Jacobs boat cradles and stands are manufactured by fully qualified
engineers in the U.K.
We are also able to provide a very comprehensive after sales service.
All our cradles and motor boat stands come fully galvanised to BS 729.
We also manufacture keel bolts, pintles and skegs as well as other components for the marine industry (any fabrications made to drawings).
