The current partners of Sabena Marine, Peter and Alan Sabberton; father and son. Previously, the business then known under the name of Sabberton Bros, owned and run by Fred Sabberton, Peter's father. To go back further, the Sabberton family had a boatyard on Riverside Road in Norwich in the 1920's. Although a large part of the business was hire craft, (from steam launches to 45' cruisers), there was always a building and repair side and it is this that is now situated at the Wroxham yard.
