Skyway Yacht Works Spar and Rigging Department

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 Yacht Works Fiberglass and Paint Department

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.

Skyway Yacht Works Maintenance Department

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!
