I debated on whether we really needed a water maker. S3 installed it in 2.5 days for a total cost of less than what other companies were quoting for lesser brands/functionality. S3 got it done in time for our big trip, and I couldn’t be happier. We anchored for 12 out of 14 nights because of it. It allowed us to have an entirely different experience.

Thank you and your excellent staff for work performed above and beyond what could be practically expected by any boater. It started with a failed new piece of equipment that after four months of not functioning the manufacturer finally recommended your organization to us. My first contact was with Mike Tobin via mobile phone from Sucia.

I was hanging from our radar arch to get an adequate mobile signal to be able to reach Mike.  We were about to leave the US on an eight-week trip to Desolation Sound and points beyond. However, without this equipment the trip would have to have been canceled or significantly modified. Mike was able to arrange to send David to Roche Harbor within two days.

David’s technical analysis of the issues was thorough, accurate and efficient. I have managed technical staff most of forty-four year professional career.

He had the situation in hand the first day he was there, in addition to addressing a different set of problems for another customer at the same time. He had flown up that first day, but was not able to get a flight the second day. So in addition to going to the shop to get the appropriate parts for both, he drove back the next morning via ferry and worked until the last ferry that night. His work ethic, was amazing. He solved the multiple issues with our equipment in addition to installing components on the other boat. David is scheduled to address a different issue for us on the same equipment this next week.

I strongly recommend S3 Maritime for any project on any boat.

I again would like to express my sincere thanks to you and your outstanding crew for your service and support during the build of the project “CHARLIE” for the past 5 months. Your support was again extremely beneficial with installing the many electrical and mechanical systems. This one was even more challenging with the automation side of things.

This project would not have been a success without your participation and very long hours.

The vessel will reach its final destination next week and I plan to meet the vessel and bring it back alive. I know that once again I can rely on your phone support even though I will be on the other side of the world.

We look forward to having your input and working with you and your crew again on the next project. See you in a month or so!

I would like to express my gratitude to you and your outstanding crew for your service and support during the build of the project “DELTA”. Your support was very beneficial with the laying out and installing the many electrical and mechanical systems.

Even though this was not a prototype, we again switched gears and built a product that was again new to all of us. I once again knew that no matter what changes were involved, your guys were on task and prepared to work for as long as it took.

I personally appreciate your constant support well into the sea-trial phase, as well as your hospitality in sharing your office and shop space with us. This project would not have been a success without your participation and very long hours.

We look forward to having your input and working along side with you and your crew again on our next project.

I wanted to thank you and your team for all the hard work.
I could not praise the S3 tradesmen any higher. All great guys and all excellent at what they do.
I’m sure I’ll be making more calls to your guys over the coming months and look forward to continuing working with the S3 team.
Pass a thanks on to Mike for his help with the scheduling.
Tyler, Brett and David did a fantastic job for us.

I have had a number of boats of one sort or another over the span of 30+ years and have interfaced with all sorts of folks in the marine trades from competent people to "wharf rats". I have also supervised engineers and technical folks for much of my professional career. The short version of my comments is that you have a "good hand" in Tyler and he is well worth keeping. He represents your organization well.

It was great to work with you and your crew again. Your professional services helped my Annual Maintenance go seamless. Thank you very much. I feel your guys worked above and beyond to have my projects complete within the time frame allowed. I know at times, it was not an easy task to work around the engine technicians, but Seamus and Jason made it happen. Your guys did a great job tearing down my PORT Engine, parting the shaft from the transmission, and pulling off the massive exhaust. Once the repairs were complete, your guys came back in immediately and put me back together. I would also like to thank Les for the strenuous task of going through all of my electrical panels, load testing my batteries, and checking all configurations of my ASEA power panel.

There seems to be “nothing” that your crew can not, or will not do. You are the most kind and courteous full service facility and crew that I have had the pleasure to work with. Keep up the great work, and again, I hope to stop through in the near future.
