As a fellow sailor, and owner of Blue Water Marine in Sterling Heights, I can understand the frustration that comes with finding an outfit to handle sailboat repairs. Whether it is a problem with the diesel engine, electrical system issues or prop shaft problems, you just never know whom to trust.
Does the shop have certified mechanics? Do they carry a full line of parts for your engine? How long have they been caring for sailboat engines and systems? These are all valid questions and you don't always get the answers that give you confidence you need.
My name is Warren Roosen, owner of Blue Water Marine, and we have been in the business of sailboat repairs since 1975. Our answer to all the questions above is “YES”! Our experience with Volvo Penta, Yanmar, Universal, Westerbeke and Perkins is unparalleled. You have my word that our certified technicians will treat your boat as if it were their own, giving it the care and respect
