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.
Very friendly and helpful crew. Beautiful protected cove. Clean, hot, spacious shower rooms. The whole boatyard is oederly and well run.
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
