what We Do

Servicing & Maintenance

Reliability is everything when you go out on the water and on that big fishing adventure, regular servicing and preventative maintenance is the key to keeping your vessel in tip top shape and making your holidays and time on the water safer and more enjoyable. Dave’s Auto & Marine provide a complete service to keep your vessel reliable.

Trailer Repairs

A good trailer should last you years with the appropriate servicing and maintenance. Sometimes all your old trailer needs is the wheel bearings fixed or some new lights. Whatever your needs, Dave’s Auto & Marine are here to help.

pre-purchase inspections

Have you found a boat you love? We can do a pre-purchase inspection on-site. Our mobile pre-purchase inspection could save you thousands of dollars and unspeakable heartbreak. To ensure you avoid buying a lemon,  arrange a pre-purchase boat inspection before you commit to buying anything.

You are in safe hands

When you repair or service your boat with Dave’s Auto & Marine, you can rest assured you are dealing with experienced and qualified mechanics.


How often does my boat need servicing?

For outboards and inboard engines, most manufacturers recommend servicing every 12 months or 100 hours of operation. It’s important to perform regular maintenance to help prevent costly issues into the future.

Can I get a pre-purchase boat inspection?

Yes, we highly recommend you arrange a pre-purchase inspection to protect you from buying a dud! We will come to you and fully inspect the motor, boat and trailer to give you full peace of mind. 

Can you determine how the outboard motor/engine has been run?

On modern outboard motors, a full engine diagnostics report will show hours run, engine RPM profile, temperature profile, fault history and any failures that have occurred during operation.

Will you stick to your quote?

We always do our best to provide an accurate quote and to stick to it. Occasionally additional repairs will be needed, but we always advise you of any additional costs and get confirmation before we begin them.
