Reviews for Cable Marine West Yard
Very positive first impression, 2015-10-08
Captain: , currently Plantation Yacht Harbor, Islamorada, Fla. Keys (4407)

10-2015 update: Work done was professional and on time. The only negative was that they no longer allow outside contractors to work in their yard. Had to have my CAT work done offsite at Marina Road which necessitated an extra two days due to need to raise the SR 84 bridge to get in and out. Still a high recommendation for a knowledgable crew.

Took a 65' for a pre-purchase haul-out in July 2015 and was very impressed by professionalism and attention to detail. Personnel were knowlegable and personable. I'll be back for follow-up work. Since I paid for my pre-purchase haul-out, my return haul-out will be on-the-house. Nice touch that will bring this out-of-towner back. Should the follow-up work meet my expectations, I'll change the 4 stars to 5.



Very Good Experience, 2014-02-12
Captain: , New England (50)

I used this yard a few years back when I purchased my latest boat. After a recent horrible experience at a different I am going back to provide postive ratings for some of the good yards I have used recently. Cable Marine was a good one. They were right on schedule, communicated well and did quality work. I felt like my 55 footer was definitely not too big for them (they had much larger yachts there at the time) but also not too small. Seemed like they could do a quality job on anything my boat required.



A Working Yard, 2011-03-19
Captain: , Ottawa, Canada (363)

Cable Marine is a working yard at the start of Marina Mile. The dockage is covered and $.75/foot/night. There are no amenities, and everything is 1.5 miles away so be prepared to walk.

However, the Cable team are very friendly and helpful when doing repairs. I stayed two weeks and completed repairs including:

* canvas zipper replacement
* custom 316SS exhaust fittings were made
* various electrical repairs and upgrades
* installed WiFi amplifier
* installed a TV antena

There was more, but you get the idea. In all cases they were helpful and had the expertise to either help you do the job with parts, expertise, contacts in industry etc. - or you can just let them do it.

Please remember, this is not a marina, but if you need to get work done it's worth a call to Gary.
