Reviews for SeaBrook Harbor and Marine
NOLA'S FINEST, 2016-03-14
Captain: , Wanakena, NY (759)

Docked our 43 ft trawler here for one year. Was on floiating dock facing the Industrial Canal. The marina's location offers protection from water surges with newer hurricaine gaates entering Lake Ponchatraine. Corp of Enginires hurricaine policy requires all boats be put on the hard when hurricaine is expected. The marine's truck is available to mariners to run personal errands. Great yearly price and service. Staff was always available and friendly.

Nice Staff & good value, 2016-03-14
Captain: , Laramie (177)

We spent Christmas there then left the boat for a month and a half while dealing with work and family. They allow owners to work on their boats so I had them pull the boat to work my running gear. They assisted as I requested and left me when I wanted. I got a good value and recommend this yard. Bathrooms with showers were fine and laundry has folding table. $1.50 each for washer and dryer. A loaner pickup is available with shopping in a reasonable radius. It is an easy walk to the neighbor Marina that runs a bus several times a day to the French Quarter at $5 a head round trip. The wifi issue has been fixed. Strong signal and fast enough for most purposes.

Was supposed to be a fuel stop stayed for 4 months, 2016-03-07
Captain: , saint Paul (10)

Stopped for fuel, started chatting with one of the guys on the dock about how we had never sailed a boat before but were headed to the Bahamas. Guy said he'd teach us how to sail our boat. and he certainly did. The people in the marina are awesome.

We decided to get some work done since they had a yard here. The workers were very friendly (even if they didnt speak much english) and the oyster men in the yard are fantastic and chocked full of great stories. The work was done well, they let us do some of our own work and were very helpful.

The staff are great. Very helpful. Very friendly.

The place is clean and well maintained. They even have a truck you can borrow.

It is so close to the quarter we rode our bikes there a lot.

Loved my time here and shall return someday, even if only to visit.

Seabrook repairs experience, 2015-12-29
Captain: , Fair Haven, New York (249)

I would rate this experience a 3.5 if that were available.
1985 Marine Trader Sundeck, 38 ft.
December 2015
We were experiencing a slow leak into the bilge entering underneath the propeller shaft fitting that houses the mid shaft cutless bearing where it bolts with four studs to a bulkhead. This is also the fitting that the dripless packing attaches to. I had determined that the keel was also full of water, which does not appear to be unusual with these boats, though the source of the water was not evident. I had installed a keel drain as part of a keel repair last year to allow draining of the keel before winter layup. For this new leak into the bilge it was not clear where the water was coming from, either up through the false floor that closes off the top of the keel at the point where that floor meets the bulkhead that the propeller shaft fitting bolts to, or around the propeller shaft fitting flange where it attaches to the afore mentioned bulkhead. My fear was that the shaft tube was leaking due to corrosion and allowing the keel to fill.
David from Seabrook came and looked at the boat and we agreed it had to be pulled and the prop shaft removed to diagnose the problem. While the boat was out we decided to have the bottom paint redone as it was long overdue.
Once the shaft was out it was clear the tube was fine and that the water appeared to enter the keel through a poorly sealed prop shaft fitting flange on the aft end of the keel, just forward of the prop.
New cutless bearings were installed, everything resealed and assembled, the false floor was fiber glassed under the prop shaft fitting to reseal the keel area and the bottom was stripped and painted, with new anodes installed too.
Summary of the job:
%u2022 Prompt service, courteous and considerate
%u2022 Clear initial scope of work
%u2022 Power provided to maintain the fridge contents
%u2022 Effort made to keep the mess down
%u2022 Bottom job comprehensive and complete
%u2022 Allowed me to do some work
%u2022 Stayed within scope, explained plans
%u2022 Final cost in alignment with initial estimate
%u2022 While replacing anodes the painter left a mounting bolt loose, causing a small leak through the transom- discovered it due to water accumulating under the aft berth on Friday after the boat was splashed (Seabrook pulled the boat the following Monday and repaired)
%u2022 One of the workers left the shower drain disconnected causing the shower to drain into the bilge for several days (I discovered and reattached, had to vacuum out the water)
%u2022 The mechanics did not reconnect all of the grounding wires to the prop shaft fittings (did attach one of three, I attached the others)
%u2022 Fiberglass work got resin on the flange and threads for the shaft tube fitting and did not allow clearance for installation, requiring extra work by the mechanics to remove excess glass on the mounting surface and stud threads and grind clearance to allow reinstallation of the prop shaft fitting.
%u2022 When splashing the boat, I pointed out to David that the prop nuts were installed in reverse order from the generally accepted standard, David said that is just the way they do it. (Seabrook puts the large nut on first and the thin one on second)

I would rate them a 3.5 out of 5. I would use them again and carefully check their work.
After we picked up the boat on Friday afternoon and found the leak in the stern I called and left a message (they had closed early for their Christmas party) I received three return calls from different people to ensure we were not sinking and to clarify what the issue was.
The shower drain, grounding wires and fiberglass were evidence to me of carelessness and caused me to re-inspect all of the work very carefully.
There are still two camps on prop nut installation, so not following ABYCS, Navy, SAE, USCG guidelines on propeller nut installation could maybe be chalked up to a matter of opinion, but the data sides with the experts.

Great all the way, 2015-08-21
Captain: , Naples, Fl (181)

We're staying here 4 nights and then layup the boat in South Shore Harbor as the weather caught up with us and there is no time to go safely on to Florida.
The slip is nice and has complete services. There are bathrooms next to the office and store (very convenient), but limited to only 1 for the gents. Next door in Pontchartrain Landing a nice bar and restaurant. Everything is here, including again very nice people.

Very Nice Facility and Staff!, 2015-07-23
Captain: , Kemah, TX (622)

We were here three days prior to Christmas, 2014. We came in after they closed for a Christmas Party, but had communicated with them prior to arriving. We were assigned a slip, but they requested we back in to the slip (all perpendicular to the canal). Unfortunately, the current/tide and winds were moving pretty quickly to the south. Even with twin diesels, it was a challenge, and we bailed out for the fuel dock. Stayed there overnight, refueled and departed in the fog the next morning. Due to the Mississippi being closed down due to heavy fog, we returned to Seabrook. We were able to back into the slip that morning. My wife was at the office when the owners began asking my wife about her health. They became quite concerned and recommended a quick trip to Oschner Heart Hospital. They loaned us their truck until they reopened after Christmas to ensure she was taken care of. Fortunately, her issue was benign, but they looked after us as though we were family. We will return!! Left on Christmas Day enroute to Houma.

Just a reminder - YOU have to know the name of the railroad bridge south! It is ALMONASTER BRIDGE. They get pissy if you don't call it that. Most books don't have that change in it.

good stop after locks east bound, 2015-07-07
Captain: , Port Arthur, Tx (526)

made it here form Homa just before bridge curfew met us on dock helped with lines. good place clean wifi not working said changes in equipment comming to correct issue.

Great Location to Layover in New Orleans, 2015-05-09
Captain: , Kemah, TX (306)

Getting through New Orleans on a sailboat with a 65 ft. mast is a hassel given the bridges that must be opened and the bridge closures/curfews for motor traffic.

We are always happy campers to arrive at Pontchartrain Landing. It is primarily an RV park with side tie slips.

We called ahead and they sent out someone to help us dock since I was short on crew.

Not what I expected, 2015-05-05
Captain: , Cincinnati, OH (110)

We arrived here as planned for a five week stay, and we were having an over heating problem on our port engine. When they showed up to check out the problem, there were two mechanic's (new to me), I asked for an estimate, and I was told it would take 3-4 hours to remove the exhaust manifold (Volvo TAMD 73 PA) and the same to replace. Ok I say, they are on the boat 4 hours, determine it is an "O" Ring that failed, no big deal right? Well, They spent a total of 9 hours on the boat, but I was charged 20 hours labor at $100.00 per hour plus 5 hours labor to spray paint a exhaust manifold and turbo for a total of 25 hours labor times $100.00 per hour. The parts were less than $100.00. I protested to Aaron the service manager, and the best he could do was shave 400.00 off of the labor charge. Bottom line, This job never required two mechanics, and once again, I feel like just because We cruise on a nice (15 year old boat) we are subject to relying on the integrity of unknown service operations. The work was done properly, but I can't help feeling robbed.

fantastic service, great staff and management, 2015-01-30
Captain: , Port Aransas, Texas (222)

Family owned. Very good service. We had to haul out to fix rudder post packing. Mechanic Tinney spotted a crack in our engine stuffing box nut, the crack was pretty major and very well could of caused major water intrusion so he saved our hide with his attentive inspection. $12/foot for haul and block. $95/hour for labor. They do not inflate parts prices at all. Facilities are good showers and laundry clean and on site. Also have a ship store and fuel dock with water and sanitation pump out. $1/ft day for transient slip. We also stayed at pontchartrain landing, prefer Sea Brook hands down.

Really Nice place and people., 2014-12-15
Captain: , Kemah, Texas (65)

Stayed here two nights. Feels very safe, and it has washeteria and restrooms/showers. Nice store and David and Emma are just great. Nice grounds to walk around and look at all the boats. Would be 5 star but, well, the area isn't exactly a tropical paradise.

Good stopover, 2014-10-08
Captain: , New Iberia, LA (357)

Easy stop before or after the locks. Call ahead for a slip as they are busy. Nice ships store and the yard folks are great, helped me with some connectors I needed, brought me to the hardware store so I could fix a leaking galley faucet and then the next day let me use the yard truck to go to the nearby grocery store.

No place to eat on site but with a walk you can go the RV/Marina next door for a meal. Gate locks up and store closes around 4 so be prepared to be left without much to do. They did add a nice deck area overlooking the Industrial Canal and you can watch the boats and planes go by (Lakefront Airport across the canal).

Window Dressing, 2014-08-02
Captain: , Corpus Christi (301)

The best way I can describe this marina is window dressing. The staff lacked the knowledge I would expect from a marina. The toilet lacked toilet paper something that is unacceptable and if that was a West Marine store on site they need to take a field trip to Dog River in Mobile to get educated.

What a great location too bad they are not willing to provide the service that would make it a first rate stop.

great spot, 2014-03-02
Captain: , Halifax Harbor (109)

We hauled out of Texas and Seabrook unloaded us, did some reassembly and serviced the bottom, generator, motors and IPS Drives as well as a few minor repairs. They are wonderful and if I ever go back to NOLA, I will stay there again.

Good diesel, helpful staff, 2013-12-10
Captain: , San Marcos, TX (865)

While staying at Pontchartrain Landing, pulled over for fuel. Helpful, friendly staff, easy in and out.

Good stop for repairs, 2013-12-06
Captain: , Port Aransas (992)

We stopped here to get fuel after exiting the Industrial Canal Lock system and prior to continuing East. We needed our autopilot fixed and they were able to arrange for that so we stayed two nights. We had to wait a while, but that's Cruising and it was nice to have the autopilot working again.

The docks are floating with fixed pilings on the outside. The finger pier is very short. We experienced a little bit of wake but nothing to worry over. Current can be a minor issue so be aware.

West Marine light on sight. If you need something they don't have, ask by 2pm and they may be able to get it next day.

The only reason they don't rate four stars is that the wi-fi is weak and slow at the docks. The waiting for the repairman wouldn't have been so tedious if the wi-fi would have worked.

If you are waiting for something, stay on top of it. Don't assume that they are working on it...

Are you kidding me?, 2013-09-20
Captain: , Corpus Christi (240)

I actually had several boat units worth of work done here,but when I asked if they would dispose of my oil if I did my own oil change Im was told no, they would only deal with the used oil if they did the oil change. I agrred to have them do the oil change. At 2:30 the guy showed up. He did not speak much english but let me know he would have to leave a 3:30. We rushed through the oil change with me doing the bulk of the work as the tech was not familiar with my boat. He left at 3:30 and I finished the job.

In fairness to them the other work I had done there was well done by very knowledgable techs.

Seabrook Shipyard, 2013-08-19
Captain: , Galveston, TX (599)

Close to Lake Pontchartrain. Friendly and helpful staff. Cleanest facilities we've seen this trip.

Great work, on time, on budget!, 2013-08-13
Captain: , New Orleans (309)

Second time getting a bottom job here. It was done on time and no hidden costs. Great service and knowledgeable staff.

Good experience, 2013-06-03
Captain: , Navarre, FL (41)

Friendly staff. Gas is well priced. Recently added pumpout station.

Excellent mechanic, 2013-04-03
Captain: , Phoenix, AZ (960)

If in need of a great diesel mechanic call Russell at Colemar Services. 985-898-1925. He will come to your boat and he is reasonable.

Great yard, 2013-03-01
Captain: , new orleans (12)

Hauled 42 Hatteras for quick zinc change and shaft packing. Naturally wound up staying over a week due to unexpected changes in work planned. Yard was very helpful and willing to let me do my own work. Clean and well maintained.

Helpful and knowledgeable, 2013-02-17
Captain: , Gulf Shores, AL (135)

Just had our 43' sailboat hauled out for a bottom job and they did a great job. Everyone was
friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. The price quoted was the final price, no surprises. They make every effort to work with your schedule.
We were very satisfied!

Wished we were closer, 2012-12-20
Captain: , Reedville, VA (689)

Update - Congratulations on becoming an Active Captain Marina

Had work done on sanitation lines. They offered a solution to our ongoing problem, were under the quoted price, and did the job promptly. If we were closer, we would have more work done.

Yard period was great!, 2012-05-15
Captain: , Louisiana (554)

Had 48' boat hauled in Feb 2012 for bottom work & long list of maintenance items. Also used this yard 3 years ago for a 2=month yard period. Managers worked with me both times prior to hauling to define the scope of work, and to discuss the approach and contingencies. I was at the boat every day to monitor progress, as well as perform some work on my own. The yard is particularly good in their woodworking/cabinetry and their painting. with frequent communication, all work was completed as expected, with no surprises. The yard had just begun offering a substantial BoatUS discount on material + labor, so I saved quite a bit, which I then gave back to them when I bought diesel fuel. They are the most capable yard in New Orleans area. Would definitely use them for the next haulout.

safe and good value for the money, 2012-02-15
Captain: , Beaumont, TX (669)

Long floating dock on industrial canal, ez entrance to boat lift. Had 50 foot boat pulled and props changed out. Efficiently done at $10/foot and 2 hours time.. $350/month sliip fee including electric. Not beautiful scenery but safe. Few wakes but bridge closed and barge traffic down. Very helpful stafff. Diesel fuel $3.89/gal. 2/13/2012

Seabrook Marina, 2012-01-12
Captain: , Eagle Harbor, WA (471)

We choose this marina since they gave us a monthly rate and were very convenient for our planned route. There is a RV park next door that allowed us to use their shuttle to & from downtown and the French Quarter for just $5 per day per person round trip. The marina is located in a industrial district but it is clean and professional. Huge boatyard/ yacht services. We paid $450 including elec for 42' s/v. Bathroom/showers, no laundry but you can use laundry at RV park Ponchatrain Landing.

Good facility, good people., 2011-10-13
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Stayed five nights after 7-8 nights anchoring on the Mississippi. Good facility. Great town for R & R. Diesel was 3.97 on 10-6-11.

Good experience with boatyard, 2011-10-13
Captain: , Houma, LA (417)

Seabrook installed a Freedom Lift on my boat, and did a first rate job. The price was higher than estimated, but there were unexpected issues with the lift. This was my first time using them, and I would go back.

Cheap, what you pay for, 2011-09-28
Captain: , New Orleans (30)

For regular maintenance, stop in, or stocking up it is fine, but if you have any major or "different" repair I'd be weary. You really have to stay on top of these guys or else they'll take short cuts. Removing our fuel tank they busted some fiberglass which they didn't fix. They dropped our motor off of a fork lift. I asked for them to fix the blisters on the bottom. Their idea of that was to pop them, using fairing compound and then epoxy paint over that.

Nice facilities, knowledgeable staff., 2011-09-23
Captain: , Crestview, FL (170)

We docked here late on August 16, 2011 intent on spending 3 days in New Orleans. My wife had joined us with our own shore side transportation, so we didn%u2019t much care that nothing (groceries, restaurants, laundry) is within walking distance. We enjoyed Ralphs at Mother%u2019s Restaurant, Muffalettas at the City Market, and toured the French quarter architecture. Our 13 year old son was with us, so we skipped Bourbon St. We had a great time. The ships store is adequate, especially if you have transportation, and the showers and bathrooms are well equipped and clean. My wife and our shore side transportation left Thursday night, and we fueled up and headed out on Friday. Before we crossed under the i-10 bride, we lost our raw water flow. You wouldn%u2019t believe how many alarms that set off. We had to return to dock under sail going upwind, and didn%u2019t get there until after 3pm. By the time I figured out exactly what the damage was, it was past 4:30. Take note, the shipyard is closed on the weekends. We had to wait until Monday to start ordering parts and could not complete repairs until Tuesday. On the positive side, there are worse places to be stuck than New Orleans, and the shipyard staff was more than willing to offer parts at reasonable prices and troubleshooting advice so that I could make the repairs myself. That kept the unexpected boat moving expenses to a minimum. Thank you to the staff at Seabrook Harbor. A courtesy car or bicycle and laundry facilities would make Seabrook Harbor top of the class.

Great Service, 2011-09-02
Captain: , Gulf Shores AL (90)

We had a bottom job done here. The job was well done, on time and a very small charge for replacing a missing block on the swim platform. Small store with limited hardware supplies. They also sell a necessity, Beer.
Aaron was very helpful and the entire staff was great.

Seabrook Marine, 2011-05-24
Captain: , Rockport, Texas (167)

We had a transient space at the long floatin dock that is along the Inner Harbor Canal. Our space had power and water. The charge for one night, for our 36 foot trawler was $56.88. There is no restaurant or grocery store at the marina nor within a mile. The marina office had cokes, beer, and a few snacks. The person at the register told us there were some fastfood restaurants and a Quickmart within a two mile radius.

Good folks and yard, 2011-03-04
Captain: , Thibodaux, Louisiana (190)

I had alternator and bow thruster problems when I pulled in here David, I believe the Manager(?) was very helpful and got the electrician John to look at the alternator right away. Then he organized a quick haul out on their Travelift, the bow thruster problem was fixed in about 20 min. The replacement alternator had to be ordered from a nearby source but John was knocking on our door at 7AM as promised and had it installed in no time. I was well pleased with the folks working there, they are proffesional and nice to deal with. There is a small ships store with connections to West Marine, same day service, Ice soft drinks and snacks available.
Not much to do around there but it is not a far ride to New Olreans and there is an Enterprise car rental place nearby.
I did catch some very nice Speckled Trout off of the docks!

Very nice facility. Helpful and curtious...great place to pull in to after a rough night/early morning on Lake Pontch...

Just the right stop, 2010-03-23
Captain: , Port Aransas, Texas (998)

After a long day on the GIWW and nightfall coming, we tied to the canal long dock on a Saturday. The yard closes on Saturday and Sunday. Winter hours for the yard is 0700 to 1500. The ship's store does work with West Marine and if you order before noon they will get the parts that day. This is a full service yard and the owner is a sailor to boot. We had extensive work done and this yard was on time, on budget and very professional.

Very helpful folks, 2010-03-15
Captain: , Nassau Bay (185)

Stopped enrout on the GIWW for refueling and one night stay. Very helpful staff. Short 15 minute cab ride to Bourbon Street for great food and fun.

Sea Brook Marina, 2009-06-25
Captain: , Kentucky (190)

New facility since Katrina, now a full service marina. Slips with and without power. Would recommend as a stop over after or before dealing with locks.

just passing through, 2009-06-05
Captain: , Fairhope, AL (167)

Arrived around 3 pm on a Saturday. Took on fuel, got a slip, w/power and water for $1.50 a foot. Nice place, nice people. Couldn't have asked for more.

Caught these guys on the way home - no dock available so I tied up at the fuel dock. $1 a foot, no power. Still nice folks.

SeaBrook Marine, 2007-02-06
Captain: , Charleston (105)

SeaBrook is not a marina but rather a large and busy boatyard. They have limited transient dockage and diesel. This would be a good overnight stop while transiting the New Orleans area on the ICW.
