We do boat repair for the Hollywood area, plus our mobile mechanics and team also serve the Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami areas.
While we provide a wide range of professional boat maintenance and repair services, what we are really known for is our Elevated Experience commitment. That means all our services are designed around making boating easier for you.
By hiring the best professionals, bringing our services to you, providing quick service, clear communication, and building extra services into our processes. As an example, when we install a new piece of equipment on your boat, we follow up with a one-on-one session with you to go over how to use it on your boat.
But let’s jump into what you are looking for, this is a sample of our most requested boat repair services (in no particular order):
# 1 Hull and Deck Repair
Boats get dings, scratches, and gouges.
If you are looking to get your boat looking original, our talented professionals do amazing Gelcoat and fiberglass repairs. We work with insurance claims for storm damage and boating accidents, or just taking care of everyday wear.
We also have skilled painters that can bring your topsides and hull back to life when the condition is beyond buffing and waxing. From precise prep work to flawless finishing.
# 2 Boat Rewiring
Old wiring that has years of splices and modifications added, can become a messy hazard. Our expert marine electricians take on full boat rewiring jobs. We can upgrade your panel, run new wires, and make your electrical system sleek and efficient (and much safer).
We also take on other jobs like adding new switches, installing new electrical gear, and troubleshooting electrical problems.
# 3 Install Marine Electronics
Our professional marine electricians install all models of marine electronics and navigation equipment. We install:
- GPS Chartplotters
- Marine Radios
- Wi-Fi domes and Boosters
- AIS transceivers
Plus, we work with you for all your boat’s instrument interfacing so that your autopilot talks to your Chartplotter, and your AIS can overlay on your radar…
If you are purchasing new electronics, we can secure discount pricing. But we are just as happy to help you install electronics you have bought yourself.
Part of our elevated experience that we like to provide is a one-on-one session with the boat owner to go over the operation of any new electronics we install. We love seeing our customers feel confident in their boat handling skills.
# 4 Outboard Engine Maintenance
We service most outboard engine models, including Yamaha, Suzuki, and Mercury.
Common requests include lower unit servicing. 50/100/300-hour servicing, fuel filter changes, oil changes, sparkplug changes, impeller replacements, and propeller repair. We can perform on-off repairs and services or perform regularly scheduled preventative maintenance to extend the life and efficiency of your outboards.
But we also service steering, trim and tilt, fuel, and electrical/starting systems.
# 5 Generator Installations
Adding or upgrading your vessel’s Genset can significantly increase the livability aboard. Onyx handles most marine generator model installations, including Onan, Westerbeke, Northern Lights, and Kohler.
Plus, our expert mobile marine diesel mechanics repair and maintain existing setups–everything from filter changes to exhaust manifolds.
# 6 Battery Banks and Charging Systems
Again, having ample power onboard is a game-changer when away from the dock.
We install inverters, battery banks, battery chargers, and battery monitoring systems. For existing systems, we can diagnose and upgrade poorly performing existing battery banks and charging systems so that you can get the most efficiency from your setup.
# 7 Marine Wi-Fi Domes and Boosters
Staying connected and through cellular, internet, or satellite while offshore is possible–and for some of our clients–critical. Our mobile marine technicians can install marine-grade Wi-Fi domes, Wi-Fi boosters, satellite TV antennas, and other communication solutions on your vessel.
There are options for improving connectivity for situations–from inland cruising to offshore passage making. We can help you navigate the options and installations.
# 8 Marine Diesel Repair
Diesels are tough machines, but they still need maintenance and repairs every now and then. Onyx’s marine diesel mechanics come to your boat to troubleshoot starting problems, engine overheating problems, and performance issues. Common repairs include valve adjustments, fouled filters and strainers, and belt replacements.
Our diesel mechanics service most marine models including Cummings, MTU, Yanmar, and Caterpillar.
# 9 Propeller and Shaft Repair
Propeller replacement and repitching can have dramatic impacts on the speed, efficiency, and smoothness of your boat’s performance. Onyx helps boat owners with all their running gear needs including shafts and shaft log replacements.
# 10 Hydraulic Pump and Line Repair
Hydraulic systems are found on every part of the boat–from hydraulic steering systems to tender lifting cranes. We help boaters with new hydraulic system installations as well as repairs and maintenance.
We can service the hydraulic pumps, fluid levels, lines, and fittings to keep your boat operating safely.
# 11 Engine Alignments and Engine Mount Replacements
Vibrations are often an early clue that your engine is out of alignment–or worse–an engine mount may need to be secured or replaced. Fortunately, our mobile mechanics can reduce or eliminate the vibrations you feel with engine alignments or new engine mounts. Our mechanics can come to your boat at your dock or many of the local Hollywood marinas and boatyards to make the repair simple.
#12 Install Underwater Lights
Transform your night-time experience onboard with an underwater LED light system. The lights attract sea life and create a mesmerizing ambiance onboard. The placement, number of lights, and colors are fully customizable.
In addition to underwater lights, we do interior and exterior lighting installations. Define the mood, provide task lighting, or upgrade the efficiency and visibility of your navigation lighting.
# 13 Clean and Paint Engine Room
A spotless engine room is bragworthy. Our technicians can help you create an engine room that you’ll want to show off–fully degreased, and freshly painted with chemical resistant paint.
#14 Marine Diesel Maintenance
Routine maintenance greatly extends the life expectancy and performance of marine diesels. Our master diesel mechanics handle oil and fluid changes as well as take care of oil, filter, and air filters. Inspection and replacement of any leaking hoses or fittings and checking belt tension and wear are all part of the routine maintenance checklists.
