Assist with Refitting
The guys let me tie my boat up near their workshop and helped me find and fit a second hand anchor winch. I couldn’t have done it without them.Andrew Bester
New Engine Installation
Thank you Able Marine for your professional installation of a new 50 hp marine diesel engine in Pandora. The job was done on time, on budget with quality workmanship. I could not find fault with the job, and communication was great.John Bridgland
The Severn has big windows and when it came time to replace them I turned to Able Marine. The secure berthing in front of their workshop coupled with their many years of expertise guaranteed the job was done to world class standards and at a fair price.Ken Baker
