Just look at all that mahogany, I’m jealous!

Some day when I grow up! I want to be a wooden boat, can you help?

Sellin’ any?

A repower isn't just a straightforward thing on an old fiberglass boat. Most 30, 40 or 50 year old boats will have issues with rot in the transom or stringers. Make sure these areas are checked before investing in a new power plant or running gear. Repairs are possible but you can not hang a new expensive engine on a hollow transom. ... See MoreSee Less

What our customers are saying


The Motor Boat Garage crew did a fantastic job on stringer, floor, and transom rebuild on my ‘88 Century Coronado. Made improvements and the quality is much better than factory. I would highly recommend this shop for your boat repair/restoration needs!


– Paul S.


Our ‘67 SkiffCraft has been given new life by Brian and the crew at Motor Boat Garage! Wonderful new engine, glistening paint job and custom interior woodwork, including seating and staving, we could not be happier with the communication and quality of work. They are a joy to know and work with!


– Tracy M.
