Boat Maintenance: The Key to a Successful Season

St. Barts Yachts, and our staff of dedicated service technicians,  reminds you that a memorable boating season begins with a thorough pre-season boat maintenance routine.

The temptation to simply put in, push off and hit the open water is great. But you wouldn’t drive the family roadster to the Grand Canyon without rotating the tires and changing the oil, would you? So don’t put in for a season of boating enjoyment without a thorough check-up of your major systems. Boat maintenance is truly an investment – it’s the best way to maximize your fun and minimize the types of issues that can keep you tied up at the marina during prime yachting time.
