Reviews for Jarrett Bay Boatworks Marina and Ship's Store
Good Boatyard, 2016-05-11
Captain: , Fort Worth, TX (80)

Jarrett Bay Boatworks hauled out my Lagoon 380, installed a small epoxy fiberglass patch on my keel and applied antifouling paint to my entire bottom. The work was completed in the shortest time possible considering the rain and required dry times. The final price was a little less than estimated and the work quality was good. Everyone at Jarrett Bay was skilled, professional, helpful and friendly. I am glad I decided to have work done at Jarrett Bay Boatworks.

Good maintenance stop., 2016-04-20
Captain: , Norfolk (50)

Dropped in w/o appt. on Sun. Wanted some sanitary hoses replaced. They got on it Mon morning and did good work changing them (nasty job). Keith was very fair on the charges and added $40/night for the dockage. Would recommend it for maint/repairs, but make appt.

Second verse, same as the first!, 2016-04-17
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (367)

We have now stopped twice at Jarrett Bay Boatyard. Keith Tosto, the yard manager, handled our projects both times. Though he had little notice from us on either occasion, he had technicians on board quickly (in a matter of minutes) to troubleshoot and then discuss repair options. Technicians as well as Keith communicated proactively and the work was done on time, on budget, and to a high standard. They can haul just about any size vessel. You are five miles north of downtown Beaufort; you need a rental car to go into town. Between Morehead City and Beaufort, you can find whatever you need. Pay attention as you enter the marina; the current from Adams Creek will affect your approach. Don't be afraid to ask for help with docking. Jarrett Bay is improving facilities for boaters (new bath/shower rooms, expanded ship's store, adding a lounge) but this is still mainly a well-outfitted boatyard - a place to get things done.

Haulout during November, 2016-01-31
Captain: , Oriental, NC (10)

They work on all kinds of boats, from 30' sailboats to 100'+ trawlers, ferries, tugs, etc. It was very busy when I was there, but while the big guys got in and out, my 36 footer seemed to be at the bottom of the list for scheduling work. What shoud have been 1 week soon became 4.

Rude Unprofessional Service Manager, 2015-11-08
Captain: , Huntsville (10)

After many phone calls over the last three weeks to arrange a haul out and dry storge we were met at the dock by the most rude ignorant unprofessional person I have encountered in boating to date. My boat is a steel project trawler, definately not a pretty mega yacht. He straight out said he did not want my boat on the property because I was likely to not pay my bill and abandone the boat??? We eventually got hauled and pressure washed except for where the travel lift straps were, it still needs finishing. My wife also called to ask about his rude attitude and was told if she didnt like it she could get the boat out of thier yard. All this despite paying in full ahead and having a credit card on file. Totaly not impressed but I will wait and see how this plays out

Boat Yard, 2015-10-18
Captain: , Racine, WI (515)

Definitely a boat yard and not a marina. We stopped over to replace house batteries and they were able to handle the task. Price was reasonable. Had a couple of hickups with "Murphy's Law" but the job was completed in a couple of days.

Good service,cheap fuel & ok water, 2015-10-16
Captain: , Forked River, NJ (604)

Stopped for diesel on my way south. Best price since Portsmouth VA. Fuel dock has rubber strips on piling so no fenders needed. Dock attendant was knowable, helpful & friendly. Gas without ethanol!!!!!. He warned us that the water was from a well and had a bit of a NC swamp taste. My wife tasted it & declared it Ok. We have a charcoal filter on our drinking water so we didn't notice any issue with the water.
I will stop again on my way north.

Amazing Professional Boat yard, 2015-07-15
Captain: , Varies - Home in Charlotte, NC (192)

I have been into a lot of boat yards in my 16 years of cruising but this is by far the best. On the 173 acre site there are numerous different companies that can serve you if the Jarrett Bay cannot. They have three travel lifts that can accomodate small boats to megayachts. I can in with a fairly small problem with my shafts on the way to the Chesapeake. They had me out of the water by 8:00 am and had a mechanic immediately on the boat to see what was needed in parts. By 9:00 the next morning the parts were there and the mechanic worked on the boat all day until it was done and had me back in the water the next morning. I was extremely impress with the knowledge and intelligence of the mechanic that worked on my boat, Ely. Their prices are reasonable and with all of the machine shops they can hande anything including all hull work. They actually build sportfishing boats here on site. I will probably stop by here in the winter to get my hull painted.

Can't be beat.....(update 4.2015), 2015-04-04
Captain: , Southport, NC (916)

Jarrett Bay Boatworks not only makes the finest custom sportfishing yachts around but you will not find a more full service yard. Options from do it yourself to turnkey service. I've never received anything but top notch service from Jarrett Bay. They also have a great shipstore with cool apparel and nice restroom facilities.

....on a trip to Beaufort this week the seal on our V-drive failed and began to leak steadily. Jarrett Bay techs dropped everything to help us after hours, ultimately needing to put the boat in the sling to complete the repairs. Great people, knowledgeable and professional.

Great place to haul out /summer storage, 2014-03-05
Captain: , Stowe Vermont (39)

You can get anything you want in this area, DIY or have it done, its all here

On time and under budget!, 2014-01-25
Captain: , Jacksonville (190)

All work was done on time and under budget, even with additional work. Boat was handled professionally, and Tim really makes you feel welcome and goes the extra mile! If I needed work done in that neck of the woods again, I would
Not hesitate to use them!

Boat Yard can Take Care of Any Need, 2013-12-16
Captain: , Crockett (610)

We were hauled out here for about six months and had a lot of warrenty work completed. They have contractors for anytype of service you need.

Always nice with southern hospitatlity, though their scheduling is poor, thier prices seem high and craftsmanship is acceptable.

They were kind enough to hang out at the dock for a few days as we moved aboard from a u-Haul.

Anything you need!, 2013-12-11
Captain: , Lewes, DE (165)

Jarrett Bay is a machanics playland! My autopilot ripped from it's original mounting location and I needed some specialty stainless bolts to remount it. Not having autopilot is tiring! Rich at Jarrett Bay had perfectly organized and maintained hardware bins that streched for 30 feet down the wall. We took on some diesel, not a big profit margin when dealing with a sailboat, but the Admiral more than made up for it at the ship's store. The grounds are so expansive that Jim at the gas dock lends you his truck to go over to the parts building. Jim's truck is a whole other story! Stop in, every one is wonderful, and you'll probably find what you need.

BAD water but good fuel, 2013-07-06
Captain: , Port Angeles Washington (272)

We took on water here and in 2 days we had a sulfur smell that we are still trying to rid the boat of weeks later.

Perfect place right before Morehead City, 2013-04-01
Captain: , Wilmington, NC (390)

Easy approach and tie-up to the face dock. Current not a problem. Everyone had gone home but a phone call to let them know we were tying up was met with a welcome. As we only had access to power and water (due to the lateness of our arrival) we couldn't attest to showers or other facilities.

Good overnight stop, 2013-03-13
Captain: , St. Thomas, USVI (624)

We couldn%u2019t make it all the way to Beaufort, NC or Morehead City, NC so we decided to stop off in the Adams Cut at Jarrett Boat Works (1/2/13). No frills here as it is a working boat yard, but their face docks right on the waterway make for a convenient stop. They do have showers, clean restrooms, ship%u2019s store, but not walking distance to anything. We came in late and left early so it was perfect for our needs. Watch out for currents here when docking. We especially enjoyed the dolphin feeding up and down the cut into the dark hours.

Quick anf Very Friendly Fuel Stop, 2013-02-24
Captain: , Ft Lauderdale FL (271)

Loaded 400 gals on our way south in Dec 2012. Very friendly service. Convenient stop on the ICW before Morehead city. Though it was our very first time in, they treated us like an old time customer.

Great honest place to get work done, 2013-01-09
Captain: , Cuckoo, Va. (30)

I was having what I thought was a prop cavitation problem. I called Jarrett(Jeff) the night before and was told to come on in when I pass by in the A.M. they would check it out and make a recommendation. When I arrived they were waiting for me the yard manager and their sailboat expert. They asked questions then came onboard we did some testing and they gave me an hosest recommendation. No problem and no charge for there time and trouble. I was back out and on my way in less then an hour. Wow! If I ever need work done while in this area I would not hesitate to have Jarrett do the work.

Great Work, 2012-08-09
Captain: , Fort Myers Florida (189)

Had a vexing vibration problem fixed and some complicated woodworking done. Great Mechanics, nice people. It is in the middle of nowhere, but the staff ran us into town for groceries twice - cabs back are no problem, either.

Extra effort to help us, 2012-02-02
Captain: , New Bern, NC (466)

We came in for fuel and water, but our hose was too short. They made up a new hose that would reach our boat. Now that is not a big deal, but considering that it was freezing out that day and we only got 12 gal of fuel, it was pretty friendly of them. I'll stop again just to show appreciation.

Jarrett Bay Dock and haul out, 2011-10-11
Captain: , PooleUK (933)

We secured alongside their pontoon (floating dock) for a week or so whilst waiting to be lifted (My request), the staff are knowlegable, courtious and experienced. The only downsides are;
1) On the pontoons the wash from passing boats, not even slowing down whilst I was in the tender polishing the hull, drove me to distraction.
2) Dust and grit from the yard will (if the wind is From the North or North East) cover your vessel in no time.
Good WIFI, Questionable shore power (esp at $50 for a 50 Amp supply for a week) and iffy fresh water quality.
In all a worthy location for a haul out and work.

Jarrett Bay is top notch, 2011-05-21
Captain: , Wilmington, NC (10)

I bought a boat that had been stored at Jarrett Bay for a number of years. The boat yard staff could not have been more accomodating and easy to work with during repair and relaunch of my boat. They have a full range of repair services which are reasonably priced. At one point while I was working on my boat a 31 ft. sailboat pulled in with a leaking through hull fitting threatening to sink the vessel. The boat yard dropped everything else, immediately pulled him out and repaired the faulty valve while offering the skipper and his wife coffee while they waited. Only charged him half price because they repaired the boat in the sling and didn't have to block it up. Talk about great service!

Great Boatyard , 2009-07-03
Captain: , Daytona Beach,FL (172)

We have had work done at Jarrett Bay Boatworks at least four different times. They always get the work finished on time and under the estimate. We have used many yards but Jarrett Bay is by far the best. They have experienced honest people who care about the quality of work.

A harbor of refuge, 2009-05-26
Captain: , Belhaven, NC (363)

We were caught in a violent thunderstorm in Core Creek, and Jarrett Bay answered our call and instantly agreed to give us a place on their bulkhead. Very helpful at that moment!

Repair yard - Good service, 2008-09-24
Captain: , Key Biscayne FL (3048)

Did not use them but they seem to be a first rate repair yard. CA dealer on site.
