Great Job Shelter Island Boat Yard 10/13/2011

I give Shelter Island Boat Yard my highest marks! Integrity, quality, innovation, knowledge and friendly and attentive service characterize my long term experiences with SIB. What qualifies me to make this declaration? I am an experienced yacht owner spanning over 30 years and my most recent project at the yard was likely the largest project completed by SIB and one of the largest in the San Diego area. Many of your readers may recall the BIG WHITE TENT at the yard for several years – 5 yrs. to be precise – this was the 92 Foot Alessa Leigh Project. During this time we had over 30 full time Yard Employees working on my project for a cost of several million Dollars. I certainly had the opportunity to become disappointed, but to the contrary, our work was done on a handshake and the quality and performance of the work was spectacular. I am very grateful for the work that SIB performed for me and I expect to be an SIB customer for years to come. We are fortunate to have a great yard like this in S. Cal! Sincerly RSBELL more

Consistently Good Service 8/31/2011

As a yacht captain I have been coming to Shelter Island Boatyard for many years now. They have always been very accommodating to the boat's schedule and fairly priced. The boat's that I usually work on, are too big for them to haul out at their yard, but I still go there for all of my other work. Between Es Iverson, John Gumb, Chuck Walling, and Wayne Morrison, they can take care of any problem or improvement, big or small. I cannot begin to list all of the work they have performed for me over the years but let me put it this way; My job depends on the boat's owner being happy with me and the boat, and I have worked for the same owner for 18 years now. Shelter Island Boatyard is a big part of that. They have always come through for me and I cannot recommend them enough. more

Time to say ""THANKS"" 8/24/2011

As a captain, I have worked with shipyards up and down both the East Coast and the West Coast. My yard work has been as simple as bottom painting to major refits on boats of 20 feet to 80 feet. Recently I asked Es and Wayne to extend an 80 foot power boat 4 four feet, move the hydraulic stern thruster, add underwater lights, replumb the bait tank, new interior custom cabinets with burl tops, remove a sea chest and replumb the main engine just to name a few of the countless jobs that occured. While at the yard and seeing firsthand the complex jobs they can handle, I added several change orders and each was performed professionally. Their workmanship was flawless, the results were better than our expectations and the billing was precise and timely. As I said, a simple thank you is not enough! We will be back again for any further work we may need in the future. more

Great service, great flexibility. 8/22/2011

We've had three experiences now with SIBY.  All of them honest and fair. A previous poster complained about unfair treatment at SIBY.. Some people love to BASH when they can do it anonymously and when they think they can slander good businesses, just because they are less than ethical themselves.  Shame on them.   Wayne has always explained what our haul would cost and has even gone so far as to uphold a warranty despite the fact that the major product's company  had gone out of business.  You won't find this kind of service or business ethics often. You'll find them when dealing with SIBY. Wayne and the crew provide the best haul out experience possible.   We had to put our boat into storage to serve a year in Iraq.  Wayne took care of us on both sides of the experience.  He didn't even flinch when I needed an extra day in the yard.   Kudos as well to Hoffman Yacht Management for providing the services we needed while hauled out.  Honest, fair service. We intend to use SIBY for all future haul outs and recommend them without hesitation. more

Outstanding Service! 8/1/2011

Shelter Island Boatyard, located at 2330 Shelter Island Drive, has been a great supplier of boatyard services, haulouts and bottom jobs, for us (Mikelson Yachts) for many years. They can supply any number of marine services, and we have found all the staff at the boatyard as well as the independent subcontractors there to all be of outstanding character and ability. We’ve been doing business with Shelter Island Boatyard for close to 30 years now, and have seen them handle just about any job, small to very large. Great bunch of folks to work with.

First Class operation 7/29/2011

I renovated my 48ft Hatteras at Shelter Island Boatyard including a hull extension, paint, stainless, mechanical,etc. The yard and those who work there are outstanding professionals and if I were doing the same work again I would use them again. I will continue to use and recommend them to my friends. more

AVOID Shelter Island Boatyard!! 4/18/2011

Oh my heaven's I would never use this yard again. The absolute most appaling experience. The owners of this business should be ashamed at the unethical manner with which they treat customers. Avoid this boat yard at all costs! more

Shelter Island Boatyard Bandits 4/13/2011

I just had my boat at this boatyard and had the worst experience one could imagine. I was quoted one price, and ultimately the price over doubled. Both Scott and yard manager Wayne were rude, confrontational, threatening and basically held me and my boat hostage until I paid. I will never use these bandits again and will do everything I can to disuade San Diego boaters from using them as well. I would highly recommend going elsewhere! more
