This company are very professional they did a full service on my Volvo Penta engine and outdrive. They also installed transome lights which are incredible. Parts and labour were very reasonable and I felt at all times they had my best interest at heart. I would recommend them to anybody and will definitely use them moving forward


Excellent service! Friendly, reliable and always goes the extra mile when servicing and maintaining our engine! Would highly recommend *****


Dan is always punctual, clean, informative & gets the job done efficiently and effectively. I recommend him wholeheartedly. I have a Perkins 4108 engine which benefits from having Dan’s complete attention.


Shoreside marine came to our home to service a really old Johnson outboard. Dan was extremely punctual and methodical. We were recommended Shoreside by a neighbour who praised Dan and his work, stating he was thorough, knowledgeable and helpful. Dan pointed things out that needed attention on the boat which I’d never have noticed. He talked me through every stage of the job which was really interesting. I’d recommend Shoreside Marine on their time keeping alone!! Good value workmanship and top bloke too.


Dan has been helping me with a Sea Ray restoration project this winter, his help and advice has been second to non. He has given me confidence, support and advice throughout the project and without this i dont think i would have got it completed to such a high standard. I have recommended him to many of my friends who have boats, and they are all delighted with the service he provides.


We’ve been using Shoreside Marine for several years now to look after our boat. They always do a very thorough job, at a very reasonable price and are really good at keeping us informed of what is happening. We’re very happy with them and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good, honest marine company in the area.


Dan’s been servicing my boat engine forever. Always does a good job. Charges not bad too.
