Marine craftspeople work for shipbuilding and ship repair and conversion companies. In smaller marinas and boatyards, they might work for boat-building, repair and maintenance firms. Their work could range from building hulls on sea-going vessels, to restoring the fixtures and fittings on traditional narrowboats.
As a marine craftsperson, you would use carpentry, electrical, plumbing, welding and painting skills, as well as more traditional maritime craft skills like rigging and sail-making.
On smaller marine craft your duties could include assembling boat sections, installing engines and fitting out vessels with furnishing and equipment.
In a dockyard or shipyard, you are more likely to work on larger ships, tankers, and oil and gas platforms for offshore sites.
