Reviews for Olsen's Service Marina
An Honest Owner, 2016-05-20
Captain: , Oak Island, NC (20)

When having work done , of any type, what I look for is quality workmanship at a reasonable price. When a crab pot got tangled in my running gear, it bent the shaft and strut. Shaft seal was wiped allowing water in the engine room. I consider myself fortunate to have been towed to Olsen for an emergency lift and subsequent repairs. Quality of work was excellent. You may find cheaper, but it's been my experience that you get what you pay for. I found the owner to be an honest broker, offering quality work at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for. Highly recommend you give them a try.

Yard work, 2015-07-29

Friendly staff, skilled in all areas from painting (exterior and interior), compentry, engine work, head repair etc.

Great yard well run, 2015-05-10
Captain: , St James City, FL (10)

After a lightning strike on Gypsy Rose (Hunter 34) a technician that works on marine electronics recommended Olsen%u2019s Service Marina (having just moved I was not familiar with this area). I found it a small yard that can handle large boats. This yard has been in the family for generations and the Owner Manager, %u201CDominic%u201D is a straight shooter and the prices are fair. Besides the extensive repairs to my electronics and wiring I also had the hull buffed, the bottom sanded, sealed and painted. They did an excellent job. The service personnel that I interfaced with were experienced and knowledgeable in their field of expertise. I am a hands on type and I found that I could trust they knew what they were doing. I will return to this yard for service.

Nothing to say, 2014-09-14
Captain: , Ft Myers Beach (74)

Had bottom and rudder towers done, needed tanks installed, VA had to put a couple more heart stents in which meant worked stopped. Lot of reasons given, mostly based on need for my personal attendance, but culminated in 86'd from yard. Curious, unhappy situation. Mostly think he didn't want to ask my widow for payment if I croaked when the work was done but the bill was still being written. Fair enough, I guess.
Yard is very good for in and out, emergency repairs and paint. Labor intensive, long term jobs can stretch out. As always, caveat emptor.

Bad attitude, poor work, 2014-02-27
Captain: , Chicago, IL (958)

Our experience was totally opposite of the comments below. Had Olsen sand blast/bead blast/clean engine parts including the heat exchange - was quoted one price, was $150 more when the parts were ready, and the not all of the parts were cleaned as quoted. Had no choice but to pay the bill because the engine is worthless without the parts. Subsequent to all this several fellow boaters on the dock related similar stories, including one sailor who had his boat dropped from the sling and Olsen refused to assume any responsibility.

they did the work, 2013-05-19
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (980)

We needed to have our prop repaired, which turned into a replacement and a new transmission. Workmanship very good. Customer service lousy. Boat dirty, greasy prints everywhere, footprints on the cushions. Owner is very opinionated, and of course never wrong. There are other places to have the work done and in hind site we should have looked around before we choose this shop.

Excellent work, staff & owner, 2012-11-21
Captain: , Wanakena, NY (568)

They analyzed and fixed my complicated vibration problem. Very experienced and knowledgable staff. Went out of their way to courteous. Dominic, the owner, is as honest as they come. We will use them again.

Top Notch Yard, 2011-04-29
Captain: , Port Lavaca, TX (441)

Very knowledgable staff, efficient, and fair price. Had hull zinc problem and battery replacement done very quickly. Owner was very thoughtful and considerate.

Top rate boat yard, 2011-04-06
Captain: , San Francisco CA (1301)

We had to have emergency forestay repairs made after crossing from Key West, and Olsen Marine got us in and did the work in an hour and a half. They couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I'd be a regular there if I lived in Ft. Myers Beach or nearby.

Honest, excellent facilities, 2011-02-16
Captain: , Fort Myers Beach (276)

Ask for Casey when you get there. Casey is one of the most honest, hardworking gents on the island. These guys do it all and can handle any size boat for haul out. Prices are competative with the rest of Fort Myers Beach. Deep water access for you big boats too.

Bottom job & Motor service, 2011-02-10
Captain: , Fort Myers Beach, Florida (20)

Verry friendly & knowledgable staff, all work completed without any problems.

Comment on Yacht Brokerage . . ., 2009-11-07
Captain: , Ft. Myers Beach (263)

This is a review of their yacht brokerage, I have not dealt with them regarding boat maintenance.
We looked at a used, in-shape Catalina 25 here that was on a mechanic's lien (previous owner didn't pay for bottom paint job). After rigging the boat and putting the sails up for Olson Marine (so we could test sail), the price of the boat doubled. "We didn't know there were sails on the boat, but since you found them, you'd agree that we will need to charge more now." Shady at best.
Casey, an older gentleman, was great the entire time. Mark Olson, not so much. I have since heard negative reviews from many sailors in the area.
Proceed with caution.
Because of this experience I refuse to deal with them ever again.

top notch fiberglass, bottom painting and general maintenance at a price. Casey is incredibly knowledgeable and conscentious.
