“I was new to boating when I first approached Val Wyatt Marine. They helped and advised me in a friendly and professional manner. This resulted in my purchase of a secondhand Interboat 22 as my first boat. The boat was handed over to me in fantastic condition, and Val Wyatt gave me all the necessary training and guidance to get me afloat. They provide winter storage, service and maintenance for my boat at competitive prices and prepare my boat for each new season. The staff at Val Wyatt are a delight to deal with and I would recommend them for a complete boating service without reservation”
“In 2013 we purchased a two year old Jetten 40 from Val Wyatt Marine. The marina staff made navigating the purchase process very easy for us and ensured that we knew our way around the boat before we took procession of her. They also introduced us to all the people and companies we might need to use to help us maintain her and have continued to point us in the right direction for repairs and maintenance over the years. We would not hesitate to recommend the team at Val Wyatt Marine across all areas of the services which they offer”
