Rebuilds & Sponson Jobs

We can make your boat like new again. No matter the size of job, we can rebuild almost anything. From minor changes like fresh paint, to a complete Sponson job to widen and/or lengthen you vessel, Giddings Boatworks is your first choice for top quality boat rebuilding! We have on-site steel and aluminum fabrication shops, well-trained welders and fitters, painters, carpenters, electricians and mechanics to tackle any needs you may have. Although we have a large facility with over 40 employees, the space we lease from the International Port of Coos Bay still has it’s limitations. We can get very busy with season repairs, gear-changes, refits and emergency repairs, so please call ahead to help us get your boat scheduled for rebuild space and haul-out time. We at Giddings Boatworks are proud to serve and service our Pacific fleet and local fishing businesses with the highest level of quality and efficiency at competitive costs to you. Pre-planning and communication with us about your needs will help us fulfill that commitment to quality, efficiency and cost to all of our customers and friends.
