With Mack Yacht Services your products will perform great and look fantastic while doing it.

We also specialize in hydraulic steering systems, anchoring and mooring systems as well as security, audio, and video systems, The addition of a watermaker from Spectra, Watermakers Inc. or SK, possibly some solar, wind, a new inverter charging system or upgrade that old generator and your ready to go cruising off the grid. Refrigeration and air-conditioning, along with a nice new ice machine and your now cruising in style and comfort.
Those are the fun ones that get the most attention but don’t forget the fundamentals. Lack of maintenance means problems on the water. In the words of Capt Ron, “If it’s gonna happen, it’s gonna happen out there”. Words to live by even if you don’t like the movie. Electrical items like water pumps, macerators, bilge pumps, and ac pumps are all vital components to your yacht that keep you safe and enjoying your time on the water so give them a little extra attention before your next trip. Old shore cords and outlets, miswired ac and dc outlets, undersized wiring and improper voltage protection can lead to breakdowns and even fire aboard. Fire from a bad electrical system is more common than you might think. Over the years, circuits and other components wear out so items like thermostat controls on your AC unit can literally melt down and start a fire if not properly maintained or replaced. At Mack Yacht Services we believe you get what you pay for so you will never see us installing substandard equipment. We believe the well-informed client can make a good decision that meets their needs. Our decades of service means that we can help take the guesswork out of making those decisions.
It has been our philosophy that we will always have time to go back and make it right the second time. So why not do it right the first time around? At Mack Yacht Services we do! Unfortunately, even the best products and installations have issues from time to time and that’s where our tenacity comes in. The buck stops here and that means a job well done. Variety is the spice of life and with our large crew of multi-talented tradesman, there is always someone on hand equipped for every task.
