Reviews for Silver Cloud Harbor Marina
Serious Questions about theirIntegrity, 2016-01-26
Captain: , Burlington, VT USA (245)

1-1/2 years ago in October 2014, while on our way south off the Jersey coast, our 1980 Perkins 4-108 quit and we got towed in to the Silver Cloud Harbor Marina.

I prepaid for 6 weeks of dockage to make sure it was covered since I couldn't stay on board for the whole time it was being fixed.

They determined that an injector line had broken, and that the injector pump and injectors were seized. They claimed it would take weeks to get the replacement lines from England, so I contacted a supplier in Virginia and had the lines to them in 3 days. None the less, they took 6 weeks to fix the boat with the mechanic working on it sporadically half a day at a time every 3 or 4 days. I was there, and I saw when he worked and when he didn't! Their excuse, when I questioned why they didn't just get the guy in there and get the job done, was that they had other pressing repairs that had to be done on boats coming out of the water for the winter. I paid them $5000 to have the pump and injectors rebuilt and the injector lines replaced. They managed to milk my prepayment for the full 6 weeks I had paid for instead of just getting the job done as promptly as possible.

2 Weeks ago, coming across the Gulf Stream the engine quit again. Towboat US towed us 25 miles across and up the New River to the Lauderdale Marine Center where another mechanic with 40 years experience went to work on our boat!!! He told us that while an injector pump is expensive, it never should have cost us $5000 to have the work that we did up in New Jersay completed. And several mechanics have told me that normally, an injector pump is just about the last thing to fail on a Perkins. So I have to ask, what did they do or not do at the Silver Cloud Harbor Marina that allowed our pump to seize up again only 1-1/2 years after it was fixed.

My conclusion. Avoid 'em like the plague. I'll never, ever go there again.



Great Family Marina, 2015-02-26

The best marina! Family owned and operated great serice and the best views!!!



Years of great service, 2013-09-04
Captain: , Sarasota (35)

We have been lucky to have found a marina where people still care for one another. Cannot say enough about service received over the past couple of years. They understand commitment and promises made are kept. As Sandy approached last year the marina stepped up and took every boat they could out of the water. Success is built upon personable and honest service, can't get any better. S/v Maiden USA II



Clean large family owned Marina, 2013-04-29
Captain: , Lankoa Harbor NJ (51)

Decent place. Slipped here for one season. Clean nice store on site...staff is great and very helpful.. Owner can be a touchie but with a place this size it is nice to see him there every day so I imagine it gets difficult. Run like a family place and well lit at night. Protected lagoon off river so strom damage is minimal. A few regulars there dont feel they have to follow well estabished rules and normal human decency but otherwsie folks there are nice.



Top notch marina, 2011-11-16

Great staff and great marina, 2011-07-03
Captain: , Beach haven NJ (510)


This marina is well protected and has modern and clean bathrooms. The service department is the best I have found in my 50 years of boating. The marine store is very well stocked, the owners are honest and take pride in creating a great boating environment. There are several great restaurants within walking distance and there is a pool in the marina. The staff is very customer friendly and overall this is one of the most professionally run marinas you can find. I have bring bringing my business to Silver Coud for the reasons stated for the last 20 years.
