Hurricane Yacht Preparation

Proper Preparedness is key for preparation of yachts and boats to avoid hurricane damage, Boat Yard Services can help you accomplish this.

Storm preparation is the key to safeguarding your investment, and our staff will do all they can to keep your vessel safe in the event of a named storm. If the unthinkable happens we are available and qualified to work with your insurance company to salvage and repair your vessel.

The first step in your hurricane plan should be to have a list of everything that is necessary to evacuate your boat and to make sure that these things are on board before hurricane season arrives. You will need full tanks of fuel for your auxiliary engine, fuel for your cooking stove, drinking and cooking water, food and snack supplies for the time underway when evacuating, and such supplies as batteries and spare parts for all important systems on board. You should have the boat ready for a trip of at least a week, because after a hurricane hits an area, it is often impossible to return to the marina for several days in the aftermath.

Reliable and Concientious!

Jason Smith and Boatyard Services have been taking care of the maintenance and service of my boat "Too Bad Too Sad" for the past 5 years. Having know Jason in the past, I knew he and his team would be reliable and conscientious and they have proven to be all of that. I am quite satisfied with their services and attention they have provided me over the years. As a result, "Too Bad Too Sad" runs and looks as good as the day she was delivered!

40' Hinckley

We have been using the services of Captain Jason Smith and Boatyard Services for the last eight years. They have provided both cosmetic and mechanical upkeep and maintenance on a Hinckley Talaria as well as a smaller Boston Whaler. These services, their attention to detail and their professionalism have all been of the highest standards. Additionally, we have used their captain services many times on evening cruises and trips to the Bahamas. Their expertise in captaining and providing service to us and our guests has also been exemplary. I'm not sure what we would do if it weren't for Jason!

48' Hinckley

I have been a customer of Boat Yard Services for many years. I have been delighted with their attention to detail and care of my vessels. Captain Jason and his crew have been with me through my first 38’ Little Harbor and for two Hinckley upgrades. I appreciate the Captain services they provide to assist me with numerous trips to the Bahamas, the Florida Keys and other favorite vacation spots. The team at Boat Yard Services love what they do and it shows in their work..
