At the end of the season, we would recommend winterising your engine. This reduces the risk of problems due to corrosion & salt build up.

Outboard and inboard servicing

If required, we can also carry out a full service, so your engine is ready for the new season. Our highly qualified engineers have been trained by Honda & are able to use their diagnostic software as appropriate.


We have one of the most comprehensive spares stock in the South West and specialise in having the right parts available for immediate supply, or next day delivery. We are happy to ship to customers all over the UK & worldwide.

You choose the mechanic

What makes us unique to other storage facilities is that the customers get to choose the mechanic. If you want to a different local company to SMS then I can take the boat to them for its service or repair. We can help advice who to use for the different parts. Or leave it to use and we'll do everything for you.
