Testimonials

  • “Rivergate Marina and Shipyard are without a doubt the best place worldwide that I have ever been to have maintenance done. I have never before felt such confidence in the management as I have at Rivergate. Competitive quotes from multiple contractors are the norm and a personalised service commitment unlike I have experienced before.

    Upon completion of a year’s voyaging from the USA, we had a number of large and small jobs to perform from paintwork to fabrication. We managed to get everything done well within the time frame and at a cost well under what we expected. The first maintenance period was so successful that we returned for a haul out and more work simply because they were so good at their job.”  “Captain Maccrossan, Ocean Magazine, Issue #66

  • The maintenance we received at Rivergate Marina and Shipyard in Brisbane was far more cost effective than earlier maintenance period in the USA and the quality of work was right up there with some of the best facilities in Europe. We are planning on coming back to Rivergate for our next scheduled yard work. – Captain

  • Thank you for your kind assistance on our maintenance period. We are pleased and satisfied with the outcome from all trades that assisted, however I feel a special mention has to made to Dino and Markus from Millennium Marine. His work effort never tired or lapsed – a true credit in the painting game. We will recommend Rivergate as a yard that can deliver a good result with a fantastic attitude.

    Thank you to all from Stella – Gary, Richard, Aaron, Marc and Fairwind (that good man Sam) and the crew from Wright Marine thank you to all. Thanks to all – on time and on budget!
