Efficient, pleasant and effective

, Captain of 31m to 40m M/Y Always Believe - 12/03/2018-14:39
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

M/Y Always Believe, a 40m Maiora, is equipped with two Lofran's winches that, over the years, have suffered a great deal. The gears wouldn't disengage, the anchor wouldn't release and the brake was anything but smooth. With the knowledge that the winches were going to face yet another season hard work, I decided to call in the experts. Mehdi and Jose came on board, Helen got us the estimate that same day, and as soon as all was agreed upon, the parts where ordered and the work began.

The work scope entailed completely dismounting both windlasses, cleaning and servicing all working parts, disassemble motor, clean and replace bearing, megatest, machining of clutch cones, supply and fit new seals and gaskets. All in all, our experience with Palmawatch can be summarized as efficient, pleasant and effective. We are now ready to enter our season with perfectly working windlasses, confident that we can carry out our day to day routines without having to worry.

Once again thanks for preparing UHURU for passage so well. We had no surprises or problems, apart from the weather, which we can't blame you for. Thanks again.

Super efficient service, top quality

We recently had yard work done by Palmawatch in STP: Antifouling, anodes, ball valve checks, general bottom work. Communication with Sylvain (project director) was great, he managed the team with a very professional attitude, resulting in a super efficient service and top quality job. I would happily recommend their services to fellow captains and will definitely use them in the future.

Excellent systems!

I want to say that your system of labelling quotations and invoices the way you do in the pdf's, and reporting completed transfers is EXCELLENT! No other contractor comes close to this consistency and ease-of-read.

An honest, upfront and expert team

, Captain of 31m to 40m S/Y Twilight - 16/09/2015-08:11
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

Pierre and his team have been the lead company in assisting Twilight during our last two yard periods in STP. Their range of expertise and workmanship is very good. Assigned with a multitude of tasks including fibre glassing, antifouling and engineering works, they have delivered on time and at a excellent price. I find Pierre and his team are honest and upfront so I look forward to returning to Palma to work with them again.
