Mercury Outboard Service

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you service my Mercury Outboard?

Yes we are a Mercury Outboard Certified Service Centre and specialise in servicing Mercury outboards from 2HP to 400HP.

Can you log services for my Mercury warranty reward (3+2 or 3+3 year)

Yes, we log all services with Mercury Marine and can also sign your logbooks.

Will I get any surprises when I receive my bill?

All our logbook services are charged at a flat labour rate. Parts can vary from job to job depending on the condition of the engine and when certain items were last replaced. If you have any major issues come up we will always call you and provide an estimate. You are also welcome to drop by our workshop so we can explain things in person and also while looking at your boat.

How often should I service my Mercury Outboard?

The short answer is at a minimum interval of every 12 months. Most customers with boats usually kept in the water elect for us to look after all their annual maintenance. We arrange a lift time with The Boat Works, and once lifted we can arrange antifoul and polishing or detail services in tandem with you engine services. Technically, the schedule for all outboards is 3 months (or 20 hours whichever first), then every 12 months (or 100 hours whichever first) from the date of sale of the engine.

How long does a Mercury service take?

If your service is for a portable outboard or for your tender, it may take 1-2 days. If your service if for a Boston Whaler with triple Verado outboards which also requires antifoul, allow about 5 days.

Do you offer a trailer for smaller boats?

Subject to availability to we lift boats less than 20 feet on or workshop trailer to minimise lift costs.

Do you offer Pre-Purchase or Insurance inspections?

Yes we can provide pre-purchase inspections and Club Marine inspection reports.

Do you offer mobile outboard services?

Yes we have a full mobile service available. Please consider that most services involve servicing your gearbox unit which can only be achieved whilst the boat is out of the water and on even ground.

Do you service other brands of Outboard (not Mercury)?

At this stage we only service Mercury branded outboards, as we stock a wide range of parts and can offer prompt and reliable service.
