Reviews for Marathon Diesel Repair
Great, thoughtful service, 2017-04-21
Captain: , St Petersburg (140)

We had an overheating engine on the way from Ft Myers. Called Luis and he talked me through potential issues. I tried a few of the things but didn't have the tools to do what was needed. He offered his dock for us, but we draw too much so we couldn't use it. Instead, he sent Yoel and Cesar to work on the engine at Marathon Marina where we were moored. All three did a great and professional job and left the boat clean and working to spec. Thank you!

we had an engine issue while still at sea and called louis. he assisted me over phone and scheduled a tech to come out to the mooring field for me the next day to check the engine. this was above average service. his tech was very professional and knowledgable about the yanmar engines.



Louis is remarkable, 2014-04-12

I have had them work on my twin yanmar diesels for the last 4 years. They have always done a great job. We had a dockmate call Louis for a trouble shooting advice on his Antares Cat and they were also very helpfull.
I highly recommend them.



Very protected slips on fixed docks., 2012-04-16
Captain: , Gulf Shores Alabama (748)

Luis Garcia 305.743.7116 of Marathon Diesel Repair owns the three slips closest to his building in the end of Burdines Marina. Sometimes if they are not being used for repair berths, he will rent them for very reasonable rates. We kept our boat there for almost two months and found him to be honest, reasonable and professional. We also had them do some engine work and they were spot on and professional with that as well. Mechanic rates were about $100 hour, but they did the work correctly. The slip is well protected, though it is on a fixed dock and the finger piers are short for a 42 foot boat. People in the marina are pleasant. This is not billed as a marina, though it is a great little secret when all of the marinas in Marathon are full.
