We are a dedicated company, providing an extensive range of boating services. With decades of combined experience, we specialise in all boat types and cater to all boat sizes.
We strive to develop a set of complementary skills, a high degree of technical ability and healthy customer relations. We are selective in what we are good at, as we believe that all round nature of the service compromises quality.
We represent leading brand names. We have been a member of the Boating Industry Association of NSW since 1986 and are a member of several sub-branches.
All our work is guaranteed and insured.
We are keen to provide you with the best service so you will be happy to come back and see us again. Our service can be adapted to suit any requirements; you can simply request an individually tailored service.
Our services extend to boats in Pittwater, the Hawkesbury River and occasionally from Sydney. At prices up to 50% less than Sydney Harbour owners of multi-hull vessels are often prepared to make the trip up and combine some cruising in the Hawkesbury River with lifting their vessel on our facility.
We embrace a commitment to customer satisfaction through customer service and value. Experience has taught us that the best advertisement we can ever get is a referral.
