To whom it may concern:

I would like to convey my appreciation to the service team of High Seas Yacht Service located at Lauderdale Marine Center for the great work recently completed at LMC Yacht yard in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The work included a targeting service suggested by me after a client’s vessel underwent a reduction gear failure. High Seas, with their team of specialist, addressed my vessel, a sixty-foot vintage class Hatteras that when delivered it to LMC was only capable of obtaining a top speed of 14kts, with a high technical level of expertise found in few Companies in the industry.

High Seas came thru as I expected with a sound appraisal of the vessels needs and solutions to the problems.

We completed the crucially repairs to props, shafts, struts and rudders with professional attention to detail.

When the project was completed High Seas owner himself supervised our sea trial. To my satisfaction and goal, this Hatteras now ran a top speed of seventeen decimal eight (17.8) kts.

As a licensed U.S.C.G. Master for over thirty-five years, and Certified U.S.C.G. engineer and owner of All Marine and Estate Services, I highly recommend High Seas Yacht Service as a premier specialist company for running gear needs on vessels of any size.

Thanks again to Chris, Don, Ray, Chris Z. in the shop, and the rest of their alignment and service team.

Gentlemen – Thank you for a job well done.
