Reviews for Abaco Yacht Services
Great Service, 2017-08-26
Captain: , Salt Lake City, UT (34)

I keep coming back year after year because of AYS's great service. The quality of the work I've asked them to do has always been excellent. When my boat is in long-term storage there they respond quickly to questions and requests that I email to them.

Disappointed, 2017-04-14
Captain: , Hollywood (462)

I have been doing business with AYS for many years in my 46' Bertram, and now needed help with a waste water problrem on a 65' Hatteras. After hearing the complete story they sold us a 12v pump for about $500 that is available in the States for under $100. It wouldn't lift the effluent 3'. When we checked the impeller it had a set to te vanes that can only come frome years of unuse. The pump only can work in a "flooded" condition; not ours. When told of this the manager said "All sales are final". No how I remember this place.

Bottom Job, 2014-10-09
Captain: , Ft. Myers Beach, Florida (52)

We had the bottom of our 31 ft. sailboat sanded and painted and they did a terrific, professional and fast job. Great staff, easy in and out, highly recommended.

IPS Haul and Block, 2014-08-28
Captain: , Savannah (30)

Due to a failure on one of my IPS pods during our annual Bahamas vacation, I needed to be hauled and blocked with same day relaunch. I called on Monday, got preferred tidal position for Tuesday AM haul, was hauled, blocked and relaunched professionally prior to their end of day. Though we were doing repairs ourselves, the crew was happy to help and interested in the systems as they do not get many IPS boats there. Price for haul, block and resplash was actually less than I pay for haul here in states for annual IPS service.

The only issue I had was not with them, but with Black Sound being very shallow except at mid through high tide.

Great Storage Facility, 2012-12-19
Captain: , Brockville, Ontario (10)

Left our "Dory" there from 5/2012 thru 1/2013. Had great service while putting up the boat for storage. Regular communication during the off season and quick updates on any special events like hurricane Sandy. Friendly, reasonably priced, paved yard. Often a wait list so pays to contact them early, but if you can get in, it's much easier than the crossing.

Good service fair pricing, 2011-06-01
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1244)

Abaco Yacht Services is a small ship yard and a Yamaha dealer. Was having problems with my 50 hp motor. They quickly diagnosed as a spun hub in the prop. The only prop shop is in Marsh Harbor. One of their staff was going to Marsh the next day, took my prop and brought it back. Was back in operation in 48 hours. Friendly, courteous staff who go out of their way to help. Highly recommended.

Recommended, 2009-11-30
Captain: , Camden, ME (464)

Friendly and able service. We had our boat hauled here for a few months, and met other S/V owners who were happy with their services, including a Bahamas resident who lives about 50 miles south but brings his boat here for storage on the hard during hurricane season.

Running Gear Repair, 2009-07-29
Captain: , San Francisco, CA (211)

As a result of outstanding navigation on my part, my starboard running gear needed repair/replacement. AYS did a good job for a fair price. Due to relative remotness of Green Turtle Cay the repairs took some time to organize and complete.
