Seaway Powell Marine, a British engineering company specializing in the design and manufacture of marine hydraulic systems, now has a mobile service and repair team for winches, windlasses, hydraulic and conventional sail and rigging controls.
The service will initially cover the area from Hamble to Weymouth, with Seaway Powell Marine engineers making regular calls into harbors, marinas and boatyards, as well as responding to individual requests from leisure and commercial boat owners.
Tom Loasby, Sales Manager at Seaway Powell Marine says the service has been set up in response to requests from customers. “We get a lot of calls from boat owners, who may have been out on the water, and either develop faults within their system or know that they are not operating effectively and need servicing. Our experienced engineers can carry out servicing and repair work on board, or we can arrange to collect the item from the marina or the yacht, take it back to our service centre in Shaftsbury, and return it fully repaired and working again.”
Seaway Powell Marine designs and manufactures its own range of bespoke winches, hydraulic equipment and deck gear, and will service any make of winch or hydraulic product used in the leisure or commercial marine sectors. “Our engineers have the technical capability to service all types of products using approved spares, or where required, we can re-engineer and manufacture specialist parts,” continues Loasby.
With its specialist engineering skills, the Seaway Powell Marine service team will be supporting other manufacturers, who do not have the necessary precision engineering skills or the required spare parts, to service winches, hydraulics and other deck equipment.
