We got here on Saturday morning when the yard was closed to deal with a leaking transmission and one more bad water hose. Called ahead to let the dock master know, and he asked that we check in on Ch16 after the lock and bridge – coming southbound. After checking in we were directed to a slip around the back in the basin, where the dock master was waiting to help us settle in.
We spent the weekend here – walking distance to groceries, several restaurants, shopping. Very convenient location. Showers are limited on the property, a fairly long wait one day. Laundry facilities in the yard and a dry cleaner next door if you want it!
Monday morning James came by at 8am and we debugged the transmission – thankfully just some mis-assembly by the transmission shop that had worked on it a month ago, which was easily managed. Replaced a hose and we were underway by 9:30. Great help. Friendly staff. Fast repair. Good internet. Very good experience here.

We stopped by here on ARIES 5/9 for a night and we were happy we did! Ed did a great job moving boats around, then giving us the tour of all the sheds. Folks here could not have been more helpful. Dock masters are on duty here 24 hours and we took on fuel 0600 the next morning. Next time, we will stay awhile! Anne & Peter on ARIES

When we purchased Shangri-La at AYB, we knew she needed some updating and refreshing. The James and Marty at AYB lead a professional team of ‘get it done’ tradesmen. Whenever something came up needing a pro to get involved, they were on it pronto. We had a lot of work done. The total package came in on budget and on time for our scheduled arrival. Thank you all for a great experience!
Captain: Mike Curreri, Owner Marlow (70)
We have continued to get our Selene 55 and our new Marlow 70 serviced on each trip through VA on our annual migration north from and south to Key West. These guys are clearly among the best yards on the East Coast based on our many visits. Whether upgrading electrical and electronics or doing anything cosmetic, they do great work at good prices and always stand behind their work.

I think you are the first yard we have worked with (and there have been many) where you came in on time and on budget. You are clearly the exception. We have NO complaints! Only accolades!
Dick Riley, Richmond VA
Everything that your crew, as well as your subcontractors, did worked perfectly. As you know, that is very unusual in the marine world and is a tribute to you and your organization. I very much enjoyed doing business with Atlantic Yacht Basin and will certainly be back in the future.
