Once again! The Manoel Island Yacht Yard pulled through with some great engineering on the rebuild and general maintenance…A huge thank you on my behalf goes to all the gang at the yard who have the same work approach as me in the yard. “Old School” get in and get it done.
I also thank them for making us feel so “personalised” at the yard and we look forward without hesitation to working with them again.

Just a short message to thank all those who work at the Manoel Island Yacht Yard for the great service.

Apart from the fact that they managed to find some space for me at a very busy time of the year, everything happened precisely as planned. The timing was impeccable, as well as the service of all those who were involved.
