A shipbuilder is celebrating its 40th anniversary by staging an open day to coincide with the International Festival of Business Mersey Maritime and Shipping Innovation event.  

MCTAYS, the shipbuilding subsidiary of HS Ocean Holdings (HSOH) is hosting the open day on Friday 13th June at its yard in Birkenhead on the banks of the River Mersey.

Peter Breslin, Managing Director of MCTAYS, said the open day will provide an opportunity for customers and suppliers to see the shipyard’s extensive facilities and learn more about the services it provides.

Peter said; “We are delighted to be celebrating the 40th anniversary of MCTAYS this year at a time when the shipyard is going from strength to strength.”


Guests will be welcomed at the 6-acre site in Merseyside which includes a fully equipped build hall and engineering workshop opening directly onto a newly upgraded slipway capable of accommodating vessels up to 2,000 tonnes.

Guest speakers will include Brett Metcalf of Carmet Tug Company and Mike Williams, Senior Surveyor in charge at Lloyds Register, EMEA.

Peter added: “MCTAYS customers include fishing fleets operating off the UK coast, as well as tugs, crew transfer vessels, passenger ferries and offshore supply and support vessels. Our Open Day will provide dignitaries with a flavour of the range and the calibre of projects we deliver and we look forward to opening our doors to the shipping fraternity in the UK.”

The Maritime and Shipping Innovation event is part of the International Festival of Business taking place in Liverpool during June and July.
