Navigating Boat Repairs: Finding the Right Repair Shop Today

From common faults and leaky hulls, to rusty rails and cranky engines. Finding a reliable repairer is important to get your boat shipshape and back on the water

Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a nautical newbie, boat repairs are part and parcel of life on the water. Follow our guide, and you’ll be well on your way to getting back on the water.

What are some common issues to repair on a boat?

Common issues include hull damage, electrical problems, engine troubles, and rigging wear. 

Regular servicing can help catch these issues before they escalate and ruin your day on the water. Check out our boat service schedule.

How to find a good boat repair shop near you

Nothing better than word-of-mouth recommendations from others in the boating community. Online reviews on Google and social media are also good indicators of great service (or not).

Don’t hesitate to ask the shop questions about their expertise and experience. Good repair shops are transparent, communicative, and willing to provide references.

We’d love to show you our workshop.

How can you tell if a boat repair shop is any good?

Start by having a conversation with them. Ask about their experience, find out about any certifications they have, and how much experience they have with dealing with your specific type of boat.

Also, observe their attention to detail and commitment to quality workmanship. A reputable repair shop will gladly showcase their skills and stand behind their work.

Oftentimes, they’ll also be passionate about boating and will have many great experiences to share.

Also: Upgrade your vessel with our state-of-the-art range of boating tech.

How much do boat repairs cost?

How long is a piece of rope?  

Boat repair costs vary widely depending on the type of repairs needed and the extent of the damage to repair. You also need to factor in things like parts, the labour (hourly) to carry out the repairs, and consumables like oil etc. It’s always a good idea to get multiple quotes but remember, quality often comes with a price and cheap doesn’t always ensure cheerful.
