Trinity Marine, based in Dunsford, Devon, has been behind the authentic look of the bopping boat in the soon-to-be-released The Boat That Rocked film.
The company stuck its helpful oar in to design and dress a full-scale cross section of the pirate radio trawler.
This isn’t the first time the marine maestros have been called in to help with a production. The crew have also helped on sets for Titanic, King Kong, Shackleton and Dr Who.
Mark Jameson, of Trinity Marine, told the Herald Express: “Apart from small nautical fittings and fixtures, the majority of items that we put on the boat were portholes and our beautiful teak ships doors.
“I salvage and restore all manner of high-quality artefacts and fittings from the ship-breakers in the Far East and we are now the world’s largest dealers in marine antiques and nautical decor, so we were the perfect place to come to when they started out trying to build and decorate a 1960s ship.”
