  • Fiberglass & gelcoat repair
  • Ceramic protective coating

Do you provide services onsite?

Yes, some of our services can be provided onsite. For some of you, we understand you may keep your boat in the water at all times and may not have a trailer. We deliver our services so that you do not have to deliver your boat. Please call us for details and for specific information regarding the possibility of onsite services.

 

How long does it take for servicing?

Of course, as with anything, it depends on what you want done and/or the extent of the work required. If you intend to use our boat/yacht services for an upcoming event, then you want to contact us as soon as possible. We will work it into our schedule in an attempt to meet your needs within reason.

 

Do you really need to perform maintenance on your boat?

Your boat is an investment and to ensure it maintains proper performance and value, you need to maintain it properly. Without regular maintenance, you can expect the following to happen:

  • Plugs become fouled;
  • The engine suddenly fails to start;
  • The engine overheats;
  • The boat remains in idle;
  • The shifter doesn’t engage the transmission;
  • Steering won’t work;
  • Other performance failures.

If you take your boat out without regular maintenance then any of the above can occur, but what’s more: you could be doing more damage to your boat, too, that will result in the need for expensive repairs. All of the above and more can be prevented with regular maintenance and servicing.

 

How often should you perform maintenance work on your boat?

Generally speaking, there is maintenance you want done monthly and maintenance you want done annually.

Regular monthly services are important to keep your boat running as though you just purchased it. Taking the extra time monthly will save you a lot of work and expenses later. Monthly servicing includes things like:

  • Washing and waxing
  • Interior cleaning
  • Testing and cleaning the battery
  • Conducting inspections of pumps, propeller, water strainers, etc.
  • Checking fluid levels and topping them off.

Annual or biannual servicing includes things like:

  • Reapplying a gel coat
  • Cabin sole refinishing and cleaning
  • Tuning up
  • Testing batteries and cables
  • Changing transmission fluid
  • Inspecting and greasing fittings
  • Inspecting and servicing propeller
  • Inspecting spark plugs, fuel vent, fuel tube
  • Replacing or changing filters, belts, hoses, etc., as necessary
  • Winterizing when the boating season is over.

There are also services you may need from time to time that are not necessarily needed on a regular basis, like mildew removal and carpet cleaning. Contact Swift Marine to discuss your boat and learn what an ideal maintenance schedule may be for you. We also offer yacht management to customize your boat’s servicing needs and to ensure you always get to enjoy the water whenever that may be.
