Testimonials


"The level of service, communication and the manner in which U-Boat handled our job is outstanding.  I have not experienced that type of service for a long, long time.

We felt at times like we were your only customer, that is rare.  In today’s commerce it is like finding gold. Our sincere thanks to you and your crew. 

I know for certain I would have no hesitation in using U-Boat again or recommending them to anyone I know."

-- Alistair and Chris, West Australia, owners of "Green Flash"

"I appreciate everything that you did to help us.  I have been pretty stressed out about the whole thing and it was nice to know that someone was helping take care of things.  It is hard to be so far away and this was a major purchase for us."

-- Christy, Salt Lake, Utah, owner of "Current Sea"

U-Boat Yacht Management has performed a large variety of projects, from simple deck washes and routine engine maintenance to rebuilding freezer and fridge boxes in stainless steel and transporting boats.

Following are a few samples of completed projects.


Antigua 53 "Island Time"

Refrigeration Rebuild: The original material that the freezer and refrigerator boxes were built from was showing signs of moisture intrusion.  To remedy the problem, the delaminated material was removed, the boxes rebuilt and lined with stainless steel panels.  The cooling system was evacuated, repaired, and recharged.  The result is a very clean, rich look and feel, and excellent cooling performance.


The Lehman Engine:
  The oil & transmission coolers were replaced and other engine and generator maintenance was performed.
Additionally:  The wind-speed/direction system was rebuilt, spreader light bulbs and stove igniter switch were replaced, and inspection, adjustment, and lubrication of the steering system was performed.
