Emergency Repairs

When disaster strikes, a vessel operator can become overwhelmed with the tidal wave of details and concerns. This is especially true for a fleet of vessels after a major hurricane where the vessels themselves are just one of many critical issues demanding your attention. Let Gold Coast Yachts assist or completely handle your vessel repair. We can get you back in operation quickly. With our familiarity of multihulls and various repair processes, we can offer you or your local boatyard expert guidance. Depending on the circumstances, we can also fly out to you to conduct the repair at your location or repair vessels at our facilities on St. Croix. Even minor repairs can be done by Gold Coast Yachts professionally and timely, avoiding unforeseen complications and minimizing

downtime. We are able to work with local
USCG inspectors to review the damage and develop an approved repair plan, fly out with materials and conduct the repair, and receive sign-off by the USCG to return to service, all within a few days. Additionally, if you own a Gold Coast vessel, we can fabricate new components such as rudders and keels for a quick like-to-like replacement. Call us immediately, so we can start developing a repair plan for you!
