Commencement Bay Marine brought some of the staff from Olympic Boat Centers and WOW these folks are GREAT! The staff was friendly and the service was performed without a glitch!

I took my boat there and told them to give it a checkup to make sure I wasn't going to have any leaks this season. They charged me about $1000 (<$50 for parts) when they found so...

Vonnie (formerly with Olympic Boat Centers) was very kind and helpful! I called to get my boat winterized and she went thru several different packages and advised me of the best package to fit my needs. The service was done in a timely manner and everyone was FANTASTIC! I have found my new service center! more

Professional, reasonable rates, quick service. My friend had been using Commencement Bay Marina for years and told me that this was the only shop to use in Tacoma so I had to give them a try and I'm glad I did. I called to make an appointment and they gave me and rough estimate over the phone of $375 -$400.00 for an annual service. I took my boat in and had the outdrive removed, U joint bellows checked, engine alignment checked, oil drained, new water pump install, fluids topped off, engine checked over, compression test, and including parts and my invoice came in under the estimate. Speaks for itself. more

Take your boat here 8/26/2013

I found the first person in the marine business that delivers what they promise. Vonnie takes care of my boats better than I do. He cares and is fair. Serendipity happened and not only am I a happy customer, but I have a great place to talk shop and get repairs done. If you have a boat and care about it, take it to Commencement Bay Marine Services in Tacoma. more

I have a 1992 Four Winns that we bought about 2 months ago. Took it out three times and the motor pretty much died out. We took the boat to a shop and they said it was not repairable and that it would be $9,000 minimum to fix it. \r \r We were looking into selling it when someone mentioned getting a second quote. Took it to the guys at Commencement Bay Marine Services. They were very passionate about boats and really wanted to help us. We left the boat in his hands and he called us the next day saying he has bad news-it needed a lot of repairs but he was willing to put in the work and help us. A week and a half later and under 4k we had our boat back in action! Couldn't have asked for a better boat professional and company. They truly care about getting people on the water and they do great work. Thank you Commencement Bay Marine, you saved our boat! :)\r more

I took my boat to get winterized here last season after I had some issues with a different marina the year prior. I guess I had been missing out because I did not expect the level of service and knowledge that this place has to offer. My old marina barely even knew my name. The folks at CBMS treat me like family. I took the boat out in the spring when it was finally good boating weather and it has worked flawlessly ever since through this summer. This place is a true gem in Tacoma. more

Great service for many years 7/12/2013

For the past four years we've brought our boat here for service. They do the maintenance work and any repairs we've needed. We had some warranty issues that didn't look like we could overcome but with their help we got the company to cover some work which saved us a ton of money! more

CBMS did a great job working with me and the manufacturer to make the impossible happen. They also took very special care of my boat while pulling out the engines and putting everything back in very good working order. To really understand this you need to know me. I am very obsessive about keeping my boat very clean and nearly scratch free. This fall I had the annual service done on both new drives and everything was in perfect working order! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/21/2013

The port engine hydro-locked in my slip. I called CBMS the morning after and they were on my boat by noon pulling the plugs and oiling all the cylinders to save the engine from the saltwater damage. He pulled the risers and manifolds, where he found they had outlived their life. Parts on order that day and work was finished on the parts arrival. All at my slip in Gig Harbor! more

Perfect! 6/6/2013

CBMS has done a perfect job in every way! They find out what is the problem and they fix it! more

They do great work. Been a customer for years. 3/25/2013

They've been servicing my boat for a few years now. Started with a repair I needed after the warranty was over. They did the work and made a recommendation to keep the new warranty valid and they were right. They saved me money on the next repair and since then I've gone to no one else. more
