Reviews for Merri-Mar Yacht Basin
Very caring owners!, 2016-05-28
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2709)

We wintered our boat here after a 6 month voyage and were extremely pleased with the integrity of the owners and the way they run their operation. Upon commissioning in the spring, they were very thorough and we arrived on our orginal schedule with everything in good order. They had lousy spring weather, so they really did great to meet our launch schedule.

Jay Jr and Jay III are great folks!

On our way South we had engine problems. We called Jay. He rearranged his work schedule and resolved our problem in several hours. This is a family operated boat yard with very knowledgeable staff. The owners are cruisers themselves. Their Ships
Store is well stocked with only the most reputable brands. No fuel, no food, just great service.

Great all around; An equal mix of sail and power boats. Service is outstanding. In addidion to my home port I also winter store here.



Billy The Parts Guy, 2013-04-03
Captain: , Boston, Ma (161)

We get parts for our Yanmar 2GM20 from Merri Mar. The only reason we didn't give them 5 stars is because they have the nerve to be located an hour away from our marina. The parts guy is knowledgable and friendly, and their chandlery seems to have just about everything I need from Batteries to Zincs (I don't think they have Anchors).

Much rather spend my money here than at WM where the sales associates can be wet behind the ears. One of their service guys at Merri Mar, Jay, was more than willing to spend a few minutes advising me on my DYI keel project. Top knotch.



we send it to Jay at Merri-Mar, 2011-09-19
Captain: , Marblehead (10)

While sailing to Maine, the cutless bearing went. I got towed into Newburyport. I went to a couple of boat yards east of the bridge. They all said " If we have anything difficult we send it to Jay at Merri-Mar." Three generations in the yard. Repair done to top notch standards. He came back at 8:30 at night to launch me when the tide would permit. Said the bridge would open shortly and I could get east of the bridge.
Great Service.
