Reviews for Skyway Yacht Works
excellent experience, 2016-09-04
Captain: , Seminole, fl (95)

We used Skyway to unstep the mast on our 47' sailboat. Being very hands on, we wanted to do as much of the work as possible ourselves. This worked very well as the crew ran the equipment and were there to help in every way possible, yet had no issue with us doing the time consuming stuff. This kept our cost down nicely.
Ship store is small but well stocked, and their experience with the local racing scene boosted our confidence in their expertise.
It's always nice when you feel you came in as a customer but left as a friend.

Great place to step mast, 2015-09-28
Captain: , Gibson Island, Maryland (140)

We had made arrangements thru Albert Logistics to have our mast shipped from Skyway to Turner's in Mobile. Steve and his crew did everything we asked them to do in a prompt and professional manner. They ordered a part for us that would not come until the next day, so we went to Hammond's Marina for the night. Very happy with our experience at Skyway.

Skyway Yacht Worked Me Over, 2011-08-31
Captain: , Fairport Harbor, OH (10)

Laast month I picked up a sailboat that I had purchased in Chicago. The boat was on the hard at Skyway. As I was planning to sail the boat about 900 miles, to Fairport Harbor, Ohio I needed to have it seaworthy. The rigging was badly tangled and the personnel at Skyway suggested we use their manlift to straighten the rigging. It was a 15 minute job to get the rigging untangled. By the time they got it done it was late afternoon.

As it was so late in day to be starting out I asked if it would be OK to leave my boat tied up at the launch until early morning. They said "no problem, we've done that in the past". Later that evening they presented me with a bill for dry storage, "Man aloft" charge and overnight dockage. The total bill was $276.88.

As it was too late to go anywhere else that evening, I paid the bill. I was charged for storage from June 1, 2011 and I didn't buy the boat until June 14, 2011. Charging $50 to tie up at their launch dock in an industrial area under the Skyway is a complete rip-off. Especially when one considers that I could not leave early enough to find berthage at a "real" marina due to their delay in getting the halyards untangled. The $75 for 15 minutes work comes to about $300 per hour.

I suggest avoiding this yard if possible.
