Marine engines are often the first components to break down when regular maintenance isn't performed. The most common issues causing sudden breakdown are cooling systems (heat exchangers, raw water pumps), fuel delivery systems (primary or secondary), and electrical components including starters and alternators. Marine engines are also getting more complex as control modules become more integrated with other ship systems, making diagnostics more challenging. Thankfully, Explorer Marine Services has the knowledge and expertise needed to maintain and repair today’s sophisticated marine motors. Whatever your boat motor repair needs are, the professionals at Explorer Marine are here to help you. And large or small, every repair job we do is treated with the same integrity and attention to detail.
