What our customers say about us

Here`s what people are saying about Blackstar Engineering Ltd.

"I have known Don Guiden professionally for 25 years. Throughout that time his work has always been of the highest standard, made with a level of attention to detail that is becoming rare in the modern world. He manages the blend of science, craftsmanship and application necessary for bespoke composites, perfectly. At British Sailing he is held in very high regard and has helped us to maintain a successful zero defect policy over the recent Olympic cycle. A man with skill, standards and a conscience, I have absolutely no problem in recommending him at all. In fact he would be first on my list."


Steve Mellors, Race engineer, British Sailing Team.



"Donny has made carbon rudders for me for over 20 years and not one has ever broken.  Always top quality and delivered on time".



“Truly World Class” is often a cliché!  However, when describing the quality of the components Blackstar Engineering produces, it is very much an understatement.

Donny Guiden’s deep technical knowledge and attention to detail has provided our team with components that have proven reliable in the most extreme conditions whilst built to optimum weight and beautifully finished.


 Over the last three decades I’ve worked with Donny on a wide variety of projects including:



Open 60 BT/Estrella
Majan A100


On every one of these projects Donny’s components have been an integral part of our success.
