Customers who spend time in the Bahamas know the importance of having a watermaker on board. These systems require routine maintenance, especially if they have not been routinely run and operated. From normal maintenance, repairs or new equipment installs, our experienced technicians at our Fort Lauderdale boatyard are expertly trained to install and repair watermaker systems from all the top brands, and we are dealers for Horizon Reverse Osmosis and Sea Recovery.
