Cruise and Marine Interiors

Part of the SD group of companies. Offering a full range of marine interior design and build services, worldwide.


SD Sealants & Cosmetic Repairs was first established in 1973 as a family run business. Since then, it has steadily grown to be one of largest sealants specialists in the UK with seven offices across England, Scotland and Wales.

Several years ago, we took our experience and knowledge of sealants, resins, adhesives and hard surface repairs and offered our services to the marine sector. Using this range of services as the basis of our offering we expanded our business to include a full range of marine interior trades and services. With many of our on-site management and tradesmen full-time employees of SD, our reliability and expertise are second to none and our clients return time and again.

We offer a full, turnkey, design-and-build service, adapted to meet your needs. Whether you require your own scope, specification and design followed to the letter or need our help and advice to get the best from your ship refit, we can help. Our expert teams provide a full range of marine interior services for the cruise, ferry and off-shore sectors.

As well as in-depth surveys, design, drafting and drawings, project management and logistics management, we provide:
