“We service your engine for the future, not for what’s past”

Looking after outboard engines is our passion. Whether you own a Yamaha, Suzuki, Evinrude, Honda, Johnson, Parsun or Hidea engine, we have the expertise and understanding of each engine to offer you the best service and repair workshop around.

We are often asked about service intervals for a recreationally used outboard:

TypeMinor serviceMajor service
2-StrokeAnnuallyEvery 3 years
4-StrokeEvery 100 hoursEvery 300 hours

This applies to all brands of outboard and is the most important aspect of your outboard’s life.  We carry out an engine service to minimise future issues, not to take care of troubles you’ve experienced.  Although past issues are sometimes taken care of with a service, most are treated as a repair.  This requires a different approach and a focus on making good the fault.  We’ve been known to manufacture custom parts to keep engines running for our clients.

Apart from a service, these are common issues we take expert care of:

  • Carburettor cleaning and service
  • Fuel pump cleaning and service
  • EFI system cleaning
  • Injector cleaning
  • Air intake system service
  • Ignition and electrical system repair
  • Starter motor service
  • Gearbox repair
  • Engine repair
  • Trim and Tilt system service and repair.
  • Remote control system service
  • Timing and carburettor setting

When Rob was asked how he learned so much about outboard engines from such a young age he replied … “Fishing, nothing was going to stop me.  Even if I had to repair my engines on the beach”

There’s no bad outboard, some are just looked after better than others
