ABBRA – American Boat Builders & Repairers Association


New Service and Maintenance Locator from Marinalife

Baltimore, MD Marinalife recently launched a Service and Maintenance Locator feature on its website that provides detailed information about specific services provided by boatyards and repair yards around the country. This new service makes it easy for boaters to search by city, state, or facility name and use an advanced search to filter by the type of repair they need. Facilities and services listed range from hull repair to rigging installation and repair, travel lift and engine services to moorings, rack storage, warranty service work and more.

This new online service benefits both the boater and the yard. Service, maintenance and repair yards now have a way to be easily found by the boating public. In addition, facilities may choose to be a featured partner with Marinalife and receive premium placement within search results. Results of service facilities in the directory also often include videos, photos and fuel prices, and may offer Marinalife membership discounts through the Marinalife Discount Card.

Marinalife is offering all boatyard and repair yards a free listing in the Services section of the website – www.marinalife.com/serviceyards. Those interested in participating should e-mail Marinalife at info@marinalife.com to complete a form to be included in the directory.

Joy McPeters of Marinalife commented on the new Service and Maintenance Locator, saying, “We decided to launch this service because boaters look to Marinalife not only for advice on where to make marina reservations, but also as a trusted source for cruise planning, marina reviews, discounts and insurance. Now they can come to us for information about where to get service for their vessel.”

Marinalife has also partnered with ABBRA (American Boat Builders and Repairers Association) to help promote the services of their members to the boating public. ABBRA members are designated with an ABBRA logo next to their listing within the service and maintenance locator.

Pam Lendzion, President of the Board said, “ABBRA recognizes Marinalife as a great vehicle to connect boatyards with boat owners. ABBRA is proud to partner with Marinalife to enhance the boaters’ experience and take the hassle out of boat maintenance and repair. ABBRA member boat builders and repairers pledge to maintain the highest standards of workmanship, integrity, and honesty in dealing with their customers.”
