Repower & Refits

Pacific Coast Marine specialises in repowers and refits. We have the experience and knowledge to match an engine package to your requirements. Our skilled team will take care of the project from haul-out to re-launch.

The main reason for re-powering is quite simply because it gives you so much more enjoyment out of your boat. You invest in security and peace of mind knowing that your boat will power you safely every time you want to head out to sea.

A marine engine installation consists of more than just an engine.  It is connected to several systems that must all be optimised to suit both the engine's and the boat's characteristics. Planning well ahead from an experienced supplier is the key to getting a proper installation.
