I originally stared taking my boat to Gulf Coast because they are an certified ETEC repair center but I have continued to go there for all my service to to their excellent customer service and what I think are fair prices. This past week I took my boat in to have a new helm & Power Pole installed as well as an electrical issue that was draining my battery. They called me a few day later and said the battery wasn't draining when the battery switch was off and recommended keeping the switch off when not in use. They said they could try to trace the issue but that in their opinion it wouldn't be worth the cost to try and find it when turning the battery switch off did it and it could be something very minor so a $1.00 could run several hundred in labor. When I arrived to pick up my boat they spent around 30 min with me going over the new Power Pole and how it works as well as showing me the work they did. They also said they noticed an issue with one of my trailer tires and showed it to me. They suggested replacing this tire with my spare for now and consider getting new tires in the near future. They didn't try to sell me new tires but rather said let them know if I want them to get them for me. In this day and age when it seems like so many businesses are trying to find things to increase the price it's nice to see a company that doesn't do unneeded work and points out issues that they see even when that wasn't the reason for my boat being in there. I would highly recommend Gulf Coast Marine!

I've had two boats worked o there and both have been professionally done. I'm very pleased with their service and the rapid turnaround. I know a few Captains who take their boats there and all agree it's an excellent experience.
Garland Marine is the most trustworthy and ethical nautical company I have ever dealt with anywhere. Their word is their bond and their workmanship is outstanding and head and shoulders above anyone else including the OEM's.
