Engine outboard repairs

Over many years of work in the marine service profession, our mechanics are well versed in boat repairs. Holt Marine is not just a boat shop, we are also an authorised detailer and repairer of Mercury and MerCruiser outboards.

That said, over the years we have gained experience with almost every other boat motor brand in Holt Marine’s workshop. As yet, there has not been a mechanical issue that Holt Marine’s boat mechanics have not been able to fix.

We are familiar with all sorts of outboard engine issues, and know how to fix them. Whether your boat motor engine’s spark plug is not igniting, you’ve got a dead battery, got a kill switch issue, an overheating problem or a primer bulb collapse, we know how to identify the malfunction and how to repair it. We fix your equipment in a friendly, personal and prompt manner, in the most cost effective way.

Mercury outboard engine specialists

In our experience, Mercury outboard motors are one of the best on the market for boating in Brisbane. As such, we are authorised sellers of Mercury outboards.

Bear in mind that Brisbane’s waterways are vast. From Double Island Point in the north down to Logan in the South, that is a big water area to cover. You need a motor to last the distance. At Holt Marine, not only do we find Mercury motors sturdy and reliable, but we find the engine’s superior technology enables long distance travel. You might think that means Mercury boat engines burn a lot of petrol, however, the electronic fuel injection on such motors are surprisingly low on fuel consumption. Win-win for you.

Mercury motors can also withstand harsh weather conditions. When Brisbane’s weather turns wet and wild, with accompanied rough sea water, your Mercury motor is protected to last longer. Mercury motors are designed with easy steering functionality, which can withstand strong currents associated with heavy rain.

Naturally, that doesn’t mean you should head out on the water when you see a storm coming, but you can be assured that your manoeuvrability to get back to dry land when the rains come down will be easier with a Mercury outboard engine.

Many marine boat shops in Brisbane will be able to sell you an outboard, but when you want to speak to the Mercury outboard specialists, call Holt Marine. Consider us your Brisbane boat shop specialists for Mercury motors.

Why should I get my boat serviced?

Think of your boat as you do your car. If you don’t keep up to date with your vehicle servicing, you will inevitably end up paying more money to fix problems down the track. Many marine shops in Brisbane will assist with your servicing and boat repairs. At Holt Marine, our highly experienced and knowledgeable team prides itself on impeccable boat servicing and maintenance.

You will be impressed not only by the standard of our work, but also our serving and maintenance rates. If you want to get out on the water without a fuss, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Holt Marine. Organise regular service check-ups to keep your engine running efficiently and up-to-scratch.

Boat detailing and body work repairs

Salt water corrodes boat metal, hardware, fasteners and paint coating. Regular washes with fresh water and marine boatwash will minimise salt water corrosion. That said, wear and tear on your boat will happen, whether you are frequent water traveller or not. Keep your gelcoat touch-ups in check with Holt Marine, which will help minimise some of the corrosion on your boat.

Perhaps you’ve had an accident, a collision, or noticed dents in your boat? The majority of boats made today are built using layers of materials; fiberglass, aluminium and steel is common. What this means is that major bumps require the assistance of boating professionals. Severe impacts on your boat may call for a phone call to your insurance company. When you need a boat shop in Brisbane to fix your structural damage, Holt Marine will help you.

Naturally, minor scrapes won’t be as serious, and can be fixed for cosmetic reasons. However, even the smallest structural damage on your boat requires attention as soon as possible. The last thing you want is a small hole to corrode further, allowing water to get into your boat. Get your boat fixed as soon as possible, and avoid major issues in the future.

Holt Marine’s team is highly skilled in boat repairs and reconditioning. Whether your boat requires a gelcoat touch up, a body replacement or any other structural repair, consider Holt Marine as your go-to Brisbane boat shop.

Parts and accessories

Your boat will come to you with the basics. It is up to you to add your small luxuries. When you spend your time out on the water, you soon start to think of the added extras that will make your boating experience even better.

  • Anchoring
