If you are a sailor like me, you appreciate the peacefulness of ghosting along the lake in a light breeze, taking in the sights and sounds of summer. You also realize how much you depend on your diesel auxiliary engine in your Catalina sailboat when the wind dies or is right on the nose and you need to get to port quickly. You might also dread
the time when you have to turn to a professional diesel mechanic in the event your engine suffers a breakdown. We, at Blue Water Marine in Detroit, understand your frustration at finding just the right company for the job.
The diesel engine is a mystery to most marine repair shops but Blue Water Marine has been specializing in the servicing and repairs of these engines since 1975. My name is Warren Roosen, owner of Blue Water Marine, and I understand perfectly how difficult it is to trust your prized Catalina to just any service shop. Are they factory certified in Volvo Penta, Yanmar or Universal? Have their technicians
attended service schools to keep current on products and repair techniques? Do they have an adequate parts inventory? We at Blue Water Marine can answer “YES” to all the above questions.
We also know how important your time on the water is and how short our summers are. That is why we vow to get you back out there as soon as possible, all the while treating your Catalina sailboat like it were our own.
