Yacht Care & Services
Raven Marine’s team of marine professionals have expertise in every aspect of care and service. From repairs and refits to engine installations to detailing, our dedicated team has the experience and training to handle any yacht. Our employees come to us as professionals, and we work with the Quadrant Marine Institute to continue expanding their skills and expertise.
We also provide monitoring services. These services include a variety of weekly and monthly inspections and checks allowing us to spot small problems before they develop. These scheduled detailed inspections, help keep yachts in pristine condition throughout any season, ready to sail at any time. With our expansive facility, which includes the largest travelift on Vancouver Island, we’re able to handle boats up to 90 ft. in length.
In addition to sales and yacht care, we also offer global yacht shipping through United Raven Yacht Transport.
