Service

            


“Quality service doesn’t cost, it pays”


            Our top of the line service department handles all kinds of services, from jet boats to stern drives, your typical lake boat to your full blown race boat whether it’s Offshore or river racing you seek.

             Every service has a standard 20 point inspection starting with protecting the customer’s boat and ending with cleaning the boat before pick up.  Nothing gets by; even if the boat is just in here for a service we are constantly looking for problems or preventative maintenance, nothing gets overlooked.  All services, whether spring service or 100 hour service, all get the same amount of attention and detail.  With services like this you will be guaranteed problem free trips for years to come.  If there’s a hose about to leak or a belt about to break, we will do our best to find it and repair it before it happens.  When you drop your boat off at B&D marine we treat it as if it was our own and you always pick it up cleaner then when you brought it in.

             Not only do we service all kinds of sterndrives, but we also rebuild and upgrade all sterndrives in house.  Brian has been specializing in building top of the line Bravo One and XR style drives to withstand huge power and extreme beatings for over 15 years!  Not only do we build drives but also all jets, performance or pleasure and v-drives too.

             Being a platinum Mercruiser Dealer we service and warranty all Mercury products to their exact specifications.  Our technicians are highly trained and Mercury Certified to take care of any problems you might have.

             When it comes to storing your boat for the Winter we’ve got you covered.  This is when it is time for a winterization.  During our winterization service we go through every nut and bolt tightening and making sure everything is in good shape.  Then we fog the engine and stabilize the fuel.   By fogging the engine we are preventing the chance of rust from condensation build up inside the engine from the moist cold temperatures.  For sterndrive boats we pull the drive, check the alignment and perform a full inspection and service on the transom assembly and u-joint assembly.

 B&D Marine also has an on site boat detailer for all your detailing needs.
