Got the centreboard. I just wanted to thank you for the great job done. Looks like a new centreboard. Will definitely use and recommend your service again.

Wow - looks like new and the side deck repair is invisible - really nice job - thanks.

Chris Hall, 2000 sailor

Just a quick note to say “thank you” for delivering the boat and going through everything with me.

After a very quick turnaround the Phoenix Marine team have transformed our 9 year old fleet of tired looking Fireflys, and all 6 boats are now looking and sailing better than ever. We can't recommend this service highly enough and the Loughborough University Sailing Team are pleased to have a partnership with Phoenix Marine.

Firefly sailor - March 2012

Just a quick note to thank you and your team for the excellent job on my Laser. You certainly exceeded my expectations and have restored a 25 year old boat to showroom condition.

Over the years David Summerville and Phoenix Marine have provided SailCoach with an outstanding service and have provided excellent quality training for some of our staff in boat repair, that keep our own charter fleet working. As far as customer service goes, David and his team are first class, putting the customer's needs first to give an outstanding service with every transaction we have made with them. Thank you for all your hard work thus far and we look forward to our dealings together in the future.

Trevor Millar
Performance Director, SailCoach - April 2010

Really pleased with the repair, better than I was expecting in plastic! Many thanks for all your help.

John Davies
Laser Vago sailor - April 2010

Just to say a big thank you for dropping the boat off and for the excellent job you have done on it. Superb service!

John Masters
Laser Masters sailor - March 2010

Thank you for refurbishing my 10 year old Laser. The coach at the sailing club came over to have a look and thought it was a brand new boat!

I have just seen the repair to the Winder Fireball and think the job was excellent. In fact I believe it's the best repair I have ever seen with no sign there was ever any damage at all to the boat.

Andrew Wilde
Fireball sailor - November 2009

I have found the Phoenix Marine repair facility to offer excellent customer service, value and technical expertise. The Phoenix team have carried out repair work for me in three different classes and in structurally sensitive areas of the racing boats. The results were cosmetically and structurally perfect. All relevant logistics and administrative aspects were dealt with super efficiently. I have no hesitation in recommending their service to others and am delighted the Phoenix team could help me get the boats back into action so quickly - thanks.

Steve Tylecote

Thank you so much for your hard work on my boats and trailer this weekend, I could not have got through the weekend without you!

Jon Emmett

Phoenix Marine provide a truly professional service, their boats are superbly prepared and realistically priced, and you literally have to turn up to the venue, put on your sail and go sailing.

Andy Service
International Sailing Coach - July 2006

David Summerville consistently provides hulls of excellent quality and has provided fully rigged boats when required. Moreover, his willingness to deliver and collect boats from the venue is worth its weight in anyone's dollar. Phoenix Marine are a prime example of a total service business, David consistently goes the extra mile to ensure we are ready to race and if anything extra is required he is the first person I call, he is a problem solver of the first order.
