Pictured above, one of the SMY engineers is working in the engine room of  the 24 metre MY Juliette in November 2017.  A group of friends purchased the yacht which has been out of commission for 13 years.  Our engineering carried out inspections and serviced the three Man 2542 v12 1100hp main engines and two generators to bring them back to life as well as adding a new electronic system.  We are pleased to report a very successful sea trial.

What our customers say about us…

Jonathan Craig has been working with my boats for over 20 years and has had my full trust through major engine rebuilds to any other engineering problems. He always explains all the options available to me before any work is carried out.

Owner Cape Seal Princess 435

“We have used Jonathan’s services for many years now. He carries out the regular servicing but also brings things to our attention that we may have missed.He’s also been really helpful when we’ve needed to meet a tight deadline.
Owner Yum Seng Sealine motorboat

“Stella Maris Yachting have been the “go-to” contractor for Twizzle for a number of years. We utilise their expertise for our major service items on our Northern Lights generators and our CAT 32C Main Engine. They were useful in solving an issue which made a tangible difference to our yacht’s operation.

“They have shown time and again that they can meet our requirements for professionalism and attention to detail, especially when asked to fit a lot of complex work in a short time frame.  They leave the engine room looking pristine after having most of the equipment apart.”
Engineer  SY Twizzle  57.5m sailing yacht.
