What services do you provide for yachts?
We regularly perform pre-purchase engine surveys. This consists of an in-depth visual inspection and sea-trial data recording. We then provide a detailed report with any deficiencies noted, pictures of the deficiencies and an estimated cost to repair. This is crucial to assess the current state of the high-performance engines, gearboxes and generators in your new vessel.

Yes, almost all of our projects are on-site repairs. Usually the vessel is behind a house, at a marina or docked at a yacht club. Located in West Palm Beach, Florida we are conveniently located within a short distance of the premier yacht clubs and marinas of South Florida.
What can I do to prevent unexpected down-time?
You can request that we come to the vessel and do an assessment of the engines, gearboxes and generators. Using that assessment and the manufacturer maintenance schedule we can make the necessary recommendations to minimize any unexpected down-time. We can also outline upcoming services so you have the ability to plan for the down-time necessary for maintenance required.
