  • Quotes & Estimates

    Way too often we see "Free"  Berthing, Antifouling, Moorings, etc. Unfortunately we all know that nothing is really "Free".

    We offer good old fashioned "Service" with the same good old fashioned "Prices". At prices up to 50% less than Sydney Harbour it's worth making the trip up and combining some cruising and exploring in Broken Bay and the Hawkesbury River.

    • Once we have discussed exactly what you require, in most cases, we can offer fixed pricing - though it is impossible to give a finite quote, without knowing what additional work may need doing, until that boat is out of the water.
    • Our quote formalizes our initial discussion. We email to you our written quotation for the extent of works as requested by you. Your booking is confirmed only when we receive your approval; we cannot commence any work without receiving your approval.
    • We encourage owners to come down to the Marina on the day of the haul out and we can inspect your boat together. Taking an active interest in the underwater section of your boat also provides you with an invaluable insight into the condition of your hull.
    We pride ourselves on supplying high quality services at affordable rates.
    If you happen to find a cheaper price for the same scope of work, do not hesitate to share it with us, as our intention is to beat it.
    We are committed to your satisfaction.
    Variations to Quote
    • From time to time, unexpected issues may arise and need attention, which can only be identified when your boat is out of the water. Even with the best efforts of the owner and the Marina, situations can arise that require extra labour or materials.
    • In this event, you will be contacted and invited down to the Marina to discuss and decide for yourself the necessity of our recommendations. If you are unable to visit in person, an accurate quote can be provided over the telephone for your approval.
    • In no circumstance will we proceed with any activity outside the original quote, no matter how necessary, without your express consent.

  • Why Should I Have 6-monthly Stern Drive Service ?

    Stern Drive manufacturers recommend inspection and servicing at 6 month intervals. It may sound like overkill, however we highly recommend that you adhere to the manufacturer's advice.

    We often see families and friends arrive at the Marina on the weekend all in good spirits, eskies full of ice, bags full of picnic items, ready for a day out on the water. It is amazing how often the owners who neglect their stern drive servicing have to abort the excursion because the leg overheats and fails, or propellers are fouled and the boat simply won't move, and suffer the embarrassment in front of family and friends.
