Reviews for Hinckley Yacht Services - Portsmouth
Outstanding Yard!!, 2015-08-05
Captain: , Delray Beach, FL (327)

Absolute top notch yard. As a professional captain, I have had work done here on three different boats and everything is always right....from basic services to complex repairs and fabrication. The teamwork among the yard crew, dockmaster, technicians and service managers is impeccable. With a time critical repair issue, the mechanic caught my dock lines on arrival and was in work at engine shutdown. The repair was completed sooner than promised and we made our commitments.

While on a short haul for survey, we discovered a bow thruster guard bar had detached. With all technicians engaged on other jobs, the yard foreman did the repair himself while we were in the slings.

Great people, great work!

amazing service once again, 2015-07-08
Captain: , Deltaville (60)

On short notice, Bob Hood had his crew onboard, solving our issues that had arisen on our passage to New England. Top notch service, friendly employees and good services available. We were there nine years ago and it is still the best.

The Best Yard on Narragannsett Bay, 2014-11-23
Captain: , Apollo Beach, FL (35)

I have been doing a rebuild of my boat at Hinckley for the past two years. The staff here is very supportive and are willing to be flexible with the boat owner's needs. Search for no other yard than Hinckley when you are in New England.

Portsmouth Yacht Refit first rate, 2014-06-26
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1164)

Portsmouth Yacht Refit rents space in the yard and does excellent work. Tony Rego uses Hinckley personell as well as outside contractors and his own people. Tony goes out of his way to make his customers happy. High quality work, completed on time. Highly recommended!

No space for pure transients.

Hinckley's - First Rate Repair Service, 2011-07-13
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (6077)

The facility is dedicated to repair work on yacths. They do not usually rent out docks for transients. However, if you need repair work and are particular about having it done right, then there's no better service than from a Hinckley facility. I was resident for three days in July 2010 having my main engine and genset worked on andy was very impressed with the mechanic and the general professionalism of the people there. I came back for more work July 2011 and was again impressed, they are very careful to do things right - and if there's ever a problem with a repair they will take care of it at any of their repair facilities up and down the east coast at no additional cost.
