Vancouver, BC, Canada (PRWEB) December 1, 2005
Seascape Marine Builders has expanded its mobile marine repair service for pleasure craft and commercial vessel owners in BC, company president Julie James announced today. The yard which now offers complete refit services for high-end yachts at its facility on the Fraser River 45 minutes from Vancouver is pleased to offer mobile monthly maintenance packages along with its mobile repair services.
Seascape will assign and quickly dispatch teams of expert mechanics, engineers, and/or specialists in fibreglass, electronics or woodworking as required to perform fast repairs on vessels where and when needed. The yard has rapidly gained a strong reputation for high quality craftsmanship and precision engineering on new builds such as a 72' high speed hydrofoil designed by Apollonio Naval Architecture
“Having to have a vessel towed to a repair facility can generate significant costs in both money and lost time on the water – a cruise cut short, a missed delivery date or salmon run,” says James. “And even then you’re at the mercy of whatever happens to be the nearest yard. We saw an opportunity to put our people’s skills to good use wherever and whenever boat owners need them for fast, on-location repairs.”
Seascape’s proven shipbuilding skills – and its close working relationship with Seaforth Marine Group -- are key to its refit service. Seaforth, which offers complete yacht design and marketing services, shares space with Seascape at the Maple Ridge yard and uses the firm as its preferred builder. Seaforth’s in-house design and naval architecture capabilities enable Seascape to offer a complete refit service, from concept to completion. Leading Seaforth’s design team is Mike Harling, best known for his design work on the Prowler 40’ and Queenship’s 70’ Berretta series and for his engineering and production work on legendary yachts including the Mary J I and II, Reminisce, and Saratoga.
“We see it as a unique and complementary combination of skills and facilities for refits or maintenance,” says James. “Our service really simplifies the process for owners who want top quality design and craftsmanship in the same place. They don’t have to run around to make sure things are going according to plan. Seaforth and Seascape take care of the whole process, from initial drawing to putting the finishing touches on the upholstery.” Seascape's rate are by far the best in the industry.
