Reviews for Gulf Marine Ways
The absolute best yard experience I've ever had!, 2017-08-09
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (10)

After purchasing my "new to me" catamaran we conducted the survey and haul out at Gulf Marine Ways. The boat needed a lot of work since she had been neglected for nearly ten years. New bottom, hull paint, thru hulls, running gear, rigging, fiberglass work, electrical; we completed about 70% of a total refit in the yard. Everything was spot on professional and timely. The staff from top to bottom treated us like family. My wife and I have owned 5 different sailboats over the past 25 years and we have been in yards all over the country, we have never had this good of an experience. You may not believe this but we were a little sad when it was time to leave. However... the paint job of our hulls and mast were beyond all expectations. Our hull gelcoat was so sun damaged it looked like chalk. When Bill Blain was done with the paint job the boat looked better than anything we had just seen the week prior at the Miami boat show. We could not believe our 22 year old boat looked better than an new one.

I took my boat to Gulf Marine Ways about a month ago to have a bottom job done. The quote they estimated was right on target. Originally while booking, they said it will take 5 days, haul out on Monday and splash Friday. I could not haul out Monday and had to do it on a Tuesday. I was expecting to get it back the following Monday, but I was pleasantly surprised when they called to let me know that it would be ready Friday. I was able to inspect the bottom before they put in the water and it was very smooth! Very pleased. I was told that it should last 2 1/2 - 3 years. I will definitely be back then.

I am remiss for not writing this sooner. They hauled my boat last year for bottom paint, through hull fitting replacements and minor prop work. I can't say enough about them. Straight arrows, top quality work, no BS.

Terrific service, 2016-01-30
Captain: , South Freeport (750)

We had a rudder issue we could not understand. Scheduled for a possible haul out. Fortunately, I went day before and talked to Sherry ( office manager) and Mike (mechanic)Moho could not have been nicer. Made a plan for Mike to look at issue in water, early morning prior to haul out.
Arrived at start of workday and said, "Ready whenever you are." Mike came and looked, we agreed I would pull hydraulics and autopilot gear and find him when ready to see shaft problem.
He came, found issue with top of shaft, provided solution and we were on our way at low cost. Saved us the cost of haul and blocking!
I would go back if I had an issue.

Went in for bow thruster
and rudder seal replacement. Had a problem with auto pilot rudder feedback unit when leaving the dock. Management paid for replacement of rudder feedback, even though it was unclear if they might have caused the problem. ... Would recommend!

We scheduled a haul for a bottom job, strainer rebuild and repacking of the rudders. It was started as soon as the boat was hauled and blocked and we were back in the water ahead of schedule. All in all a great team to work with.

Gulf ways has hauled our boat about 6 times, 2012-01-19

They do a great and reasonable priced bottom job. My only complaint is they always leave our boat covered in soot from the travel hoist.
