Skyway Yacht Works' Service Department is excellent at diagnosing your problem and recommending the best solution—from bottom paint to complex electrical, mechanical, or fiberglass work, we have the right expertise for your powerboat or sailboat.
Troubleshooting is everything, whether it’s mechanical, plumbing, electronics, or even your anchor. At Skyway our technicians are tenacious in their drive to solve problems.
The market for marine electronic systems, products, and apps is exploding, and Skyway has its finger on the pulse of this dynamic industry. Whether you need radar, autopilot, AIS, navigation/racing software, or a fish finder, we can help. Skyway is experienced with B&G, Simrad, Lowrance, Raymarine, and Garmin.
Sailboats' masts have rigging that is safe and strong. Rigging is more than just the wire or rod. The stress points are the swages and the splices and they should be inspected every time you take your mast down. If you haven't had your mast down in a while, it may be time.
Skyway’s fiberglass and paint shop is capable of a full array of repairs, such as, gelcoat damage, keel damage, painting, hull penetrations and complete hull resurfacing.
At Skyway Yacht Works, it is our belief that the key to a happy and stress free summer is a busy winter. We have many boats here at Skyway and can't always tell what is wrong with just a visual inspection. You need to assess your boat's problems and place your work orders when you arrive in the fall. That way we can help keep your boat in tip top shape. Whether it is a moldy cabin, engine maintenance, or detailing, we can fix it...but it all starts with you!
Not all maintenance shows itself while your boat is in the yard. If you break down or something breaks while in the water, we can be there. We're sensitive to the short season and the urgency of having your boat on the weekends. Whether it's an engine or saildrive, impeller, pump, rigging, or air conditioning, we can get you back on the water.
