A&P Group is strategically located around the shores of the United Kingdom including the North Sea and English channel and offers full dry docking facilities to medium size cruise ships.

Our ambition is to make A&P Falmouth and A&P Tyne a centre of excellence in cruise ship repair, and we are well on our way to achieving this ambition.

We are currently working with a number of cruise operators to develop multi-vessel framework agreements which will provide greater planning opportunities for cruise operators – ensuring all maintenance work is delivered on budget and on schedule.

In 2022 and 2023, A&P Group welcomed two Fred. Olsen Cruse Lines vessels to Tyne and Falmouth – Balmoral and Bolette. Bolette was the largest passenger ship to visit Falmouth in over 60 years.


A&P Group is the first port of call for many ferry operators with our strategically located facilities in the North East and South West of England providing essential maintenance and ship repair.

A&P Group also offers innovative commercial partnerships with our customers to ensure comprehensive pre-planning.

Our commercial partnership agreement schemes have been strategically developed to offer a raft of benefits to clients in terms of efficiency, cost savings and budget security. Forward planning not only ensures that our customers secure a dry dock well in advance of works being carried out but it also enables our team to plan the dry dock schedule with a high degree of certainty.
