Explorer Yacht Services - One Call, Full Service

Explorer Yacht Services provides repair, refit, installation, and maintenance services for yachts and pleasure boats of all sizes. Explorer provides mechanical, electrical, cosmetic, and on-board equipment services. We work on motor powered vessels and sailboats in the boatyard (haul-out's anywhere in Metro Vancouver), in the water (mobile service), or at one of our covered and secure facilities. With 70 tonne and 220 tonne travel lifts and ample space for boat trailers we can handle recreational vessels of almost any size. Our skilled team of boat mechanics, marine electricians, and marine technicians are here to make yachting and boating easier and safer for you and your family and friends.

Our goal is to earn your trust and develop a long-term relationship with you and your boat. With competitive pricing and an old-fashioned work ethic, Explorer Yacht Services combines careful planning, skilled staff, common-sense time management, and quality parts to provide reliable and consistent results.

Explorer Yacht Services serves the Greater Vancouver, Lower Mainland, and Northern Washington State yachting and boating community. With two convenient locations in Vancouver, BC and Richmond, BC we provide service to marinas and boatyards across the Lower Mainland.

"We spent a delightful day with Ian yesterday winterizing our boat. As you indicated Ian is very experienced and tenacious when solving problems like the drip seal water line issue on our boat. He was a pleasure to meet and a great ambassador for you."
