“My wife and I have had time to reflect on our experience at the Marsden Cove Hardstand when we pulled out in November of 2018. We have sailed our 50 ft catamaran Mango Moon for 10 years and have managed all her maintenance and repairs ourselves. Our experience has ranged from WW2 cranes in the Philippines and Saigon, 100-ton travel lifts in Australia and NZ. Dirt, gravel and paved surfaces as well as open yard workers to all in-house workers and labour.
Our experience at Marsden was the best we have seen in all our travels. Schedules and fees were timely and fair. The staff were very knowledgeable, attentive and always eager to please the worrisome owner. The facilities were clean and very convenient for living aboard "on the hard”.
We would recommend without any reservations, to any boat owner, especially those of catamarans, your yard and the trailer lift you use to ‘pull’ boats.
All our best and we would look forward to your yard for any future work.”
Cheers,Frank and Lisa Coale
