Berthon Archives

Berthon International is one of Lymington’s major employers.  It was originally established as Inman’s boatyard in 18??.  In 19?? it was bought by the Rev Berthon and eventually developed Britain’s first marina in the river.  The current Managing Director, Brian May, has kindly given us permission to show some of the pictures from their archives.
