Maintaining Top-of-the-Line Charter Boats

We at Ocean Surfari take the time to keep our fishing boats in pristine working order. From polishing the stainless steel to engine maintenance and performance, we make sure everything is in top condition for the comfort and safety of our guests.

Ensuring engine maintenance is a priority for our crew. We maintain a log on each boat engine to ensure the fluid changes and services are completed on schedule. The boats are compounded and waxed regularly from top to bottom. The teak is stripped and varnished once every two years. Raw teak decking is properly cared for to create a beautiful and memorable experience. The boats are hauled out regularly to wash and paint the bottoms and check the hulls.

Taking the time for proper maintenance is essential to keep our boats in top shape.
