“For the past six years I have stored my motor boat over winter at Blackness. In 2014 they carried out extensive work. When launched in May 2014, the engineer conducted a full sea trial and subsequent initial service. I am entirely satisfied with the service I have received. All the staff be it office, boatyard or engineers, have been courteous and helpful. They have a ‘customer first’ attitude. Since the work was completed I have cruised on the South coast and am delighted with the new installation with no problems whatsoever.“
