If you like lying incompetent douchebags who work at a snail's pace, then this is the place for you. While motorsailing from Florida to Texas, a belt snapped on our engine and we got towed here. We thought they'd fix us up and be back n the water in a few hours. Four weeks and several thousand dollars later, we are still waiting for them to figure out how to fix the damage they caused to our boat.
Two weeks ago they said they had done a sea trail and everything was perfect on the engine. We showed up 24 hours later and discovered they could not have done a sea trial because the batteries were dead, the impeller was air-locked and a hose was spraying water all over the engine. We had to fix those things. It took us hours of work before the engine would even start.
Then when we finally got it started, the engine overheated. The boat didn't have any of those problems before they messed with it. They wouldn't help at all. They blew us off to go fishing, promising "We'll make it right tomorrow." That was 10 days ago and now I don't know how to get my boat away from these jerks. Can I call the cops?
If they are willing to be such useless scumbags to us, you have to assume that's their business plan. The marina is pretty sketchy too.
Our 39' Cutter Nereus has been moored at Turner Marine for almost two years. During that time, the Turners and their crew of professionals and staff had done everything to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction. Their work is done within budget estimates and they stand by their warranty work. I recommend this Marina to any serious cruiser looking for a short or long-term stay in a secure, safe marina.
