We could only give 5 stars because the scale doesn't go to 6.
This marina has everything you would expect at any good marina but what makes Fairview so exceptional is their service and repair capabilities. Marc and his son Jacob can fix ANYTHING on any type of boat. Their knowledge and expertise is extensive and they take great pride in their work. And when they work with outside contractors they only call the best.
We had a very large collision (someone dragged anchor into us) that wrecked our pulpit, lifelines, stanchions, shrouds, teak cap rail and holed the cabin top. All of the repairs were completed on time, on budget and look factory finished. Marc perfectly matched 17 year-old gelcoat. And not satisfied with any potential leak or weakness, he and Jacob re-bedded the chainplates and Genoa track just in case. All within budget. We had air conditioning installed while other repairs were being done and the cabinetry work covering the ducting looks like it came straight from the factory.
Marc and Jacob are perfectionists and the results show it. It's a friendly place to tie up and if you’re really lucky you’ll be there when Marc cooks up a specialty meal.

The owners and staff at this marina love boats. We had a simple economical bottom paint job done recently and the extent and results exceeded our expectations, all within the quoted price. And, without asking, a lot of free advise on how to keep the boat in shape. On time, on price, more complete than we expected. Can't ask for anything better.
Thank you so much for the kind review!
