Having had an unexpected equipment failure on board I quickly checked for a local CAT supplier and AJ Marine came to the top of the list in every search which, after using their service, is now easy to see why. Great technical knowledge, fast and speedy delivery, and most importantly great communication throughout the entire process. Thank you again for your A+ service!

I have been using LNC since 2005 and more recently AJ Marine. I have always been impressed with their professionalism, work ethic, efficiency, speed at which they can respond to an emergency request, and most importantly the quality of the work that they perform, along with their ability to leave the engine room clean and tidy.

Their ability to problem solve and understand issues quickly saves the yacht owner both time and money.

Having spent the past 12 seasons in the Med, and now having A.J. Marine perform all of our diesel engine service and/or repairs since 2014, I will continue to only use A.J. Marine and, in turn recommend the same to all of the large yacht community.

I have dealt with A.J.Marine (formerly LNC Engineering) for over 10 years and my experience is one of high quality workmanship, rapid emergency response, with all works completed on schedule, in budget and with the attitude of 'right first time'. I could not ask for better service, bravo.

I was introduced to AJ Marine by an engineer working for me earlier in the year, he highly recommended them company so I contacted Yannick for some problems we were having with our Gen sets. We have AJ Marine onboard twice this season and I have been very happy with all works done as well as the advice given during the inspections on our machinery. I will be continuing to use their services in the future. Thank you AJ Marine for your help and hard work.

I would recommend AJ Marine to any yacht

, Captain of 41m to 50m M/Y Rahal - 14/09/2017-12:21
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

I hold AJ Marine in the highest regard having used them repeatedly on several yachts over the years. The team have always had a policy of truth - they told it like it was and how long it would take to repair, although often it was quicker. The engineers and office team are always courteous and respectful of both yacht and crew alike. I would recommend them to any yacht requiring service or repair.

Always helpful and knowledgeable

Always helpful and knowledgeable, AJ have helped me out in a few sticky situations and always managed to complete their works within the tight time constraints of a successfully busy charter vessel no matter what demands I have placed on them. I’d happily recommend them to any vessel needing work on their CAT engines.

Delighted to work with AJ Marine

I am delighted to have worked with your company to complete our 3000hrs Main Engine Services and 6000hrs Generator Services. From the planning stages with Yannick, to the implementation with the team of technicians that completed the work on-board, the service was professional, efficient, clean and cost effective. I would have no hesitation in using or recommending your company for similar work in the future. My compliments to Yannick, Ian, Francois, Olivier and the rest of the team.

Excellent support and service

, Chief engineer of 41m to 50m M/Y Scorpion - 18/10/2016-08:03
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

The support and service AJ Marine had provided for myself on various yachts has been excellent and highly competitive. Any time any day I know I can count on Ian, Yannick and the team for service or support. An example of this was recently when crossing the Atlantic myself and the relief engineer contacted 3 Approved Cat dealers and only Yannick was willing to support us by sending detailed drawings and support via email even before the yacht had even used the services of AJ Marine.

AJ Marine have always provided an excellent service, they have helped us in many time sensitive, last minute situations and have always pulled through by getting the job done in time, even though it would have seemed like an impossible deadline. They also supply technical support that is second to none and they have always been there to help no matter the situation and provide us with great technical advice.

Great Service, Can't Speak Highly Enough

, Captain of 41m to 50m M/Y Domani - 14/02/2014-11:15
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

I met Ian a year ago while I was doing a handover on a yacht in a shipyard. Both generators were halfway through an overhaul. When the job was done there were many problems with generators and the warranty was through the shipyard to an outside contractor. Ian helped me to correct the problem from the previous contractors work, as well to get the generators to run the best that they had run in the past seven years. At that point I had Ian take over a Caterpillar annual service to the main engines that was also started by the previous contractor. He and his team were always there for me for any questions or repairs that needed to be done throughout the season, no matter where I was in the Med.
Presently we are doing the Lloyd's 10 year survey where Ian was able to help us get the work done to go the main engines and generators in the marina rather than in the shipyard. This was a great asset to us with our timeline. All I can say is that as long as I'm in the Med his company will be the only ones to touch any of the engines on any boat I run here. Thank you AJ Marine and team.

I have recently had work completed by AJ Marine on my Caterpillar main engines and generators. All of which was completed within the short schedule with no problems. As I have just started to use them I shall continue to use their services in the future.
