No one there when we arrived at 8 PM Saturday evening and no combination to the bathroom

Marina Response:
Maria. We want to apologize for your negative experience at GIBY. We understand that you arrived at 8pm, after hours, and did not have the combo to the heads. We should have reached out to you when it was apparent that you would not be in before closing, as planned. Please know that the Dockwa chat option is always available, even after hours. Your experience is a reminder to our staff, that we, too, can reach out electronically. We enjoy a 5-Star rating and are sorry that we missed an opportunity to deliver the experience you should have had. Our staff had hoped to greet you this morning, but you were already underway. We hope there will be another opportunity for us to get it right.

Entire staff that we dealt with were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Were a big help with a repair we needed done too. Special shout out to Kristin and Graham for the hospitality and assistance!

My husband and I over the years have been in many boatyards and marinas on the eastern seaboard and in the Caribbean for repairs, overnight stops and even storing over the winter. It's safe to say we are a fairly decent judge of what makes a good boatyard. When we found GIBY, who have now looked after our boat for over 4 years we were blown away by the service, talent of team, the customer-service driven atmosphere and love of boats! They are outstanding at what they do and I personally think one would be hard pressed to find a better yard on the east coast. My husband jokes (maybe not a joke) that if they ever sold their yard that he would leave boating forever.

Marina Response:
Thanks for your kind words, "MarineKat".

Kristin - thanks again for the "platinum" service at Great Island Boat Yard on Wednesday... We'll be back soon! I'll keep an eye out for your email as a follow up, as we discussed... Best regards, Ken
