At Your Service.
Our core team of technical experts and project managers work with LC8 partner naval architects and industry specialists to cost-effectively handle any project.
Electrical & Electronics
LC8 technicians are experienced working with all the major brands of marine electronics and have expertise in networking and integration.
We have thousands of electronic installations under our belt including Hybrid Touch packages with radar, navigation, fish-finder and integration with audio packages. Full Bluetooth capabilities for wireless music streaming and movies.
Engine Service & Repair
Our mechanics have years of experience servicing all types of engines, drives and transmissions. Whether it is a re-power or annual service on your Yamaha, our technicians are certified experts at diagnostic trouble-shooting and installations.
Our mission is to keep you on the water (and out of the boatyard!). We have a keen eye for potential issues and proactively audit the engines to diagnose issues BEFORE they show up!
Transportation & Logistics
Always dreamed of having your boat in the Caribbean? Chasing a regatta series in The Med? No matter what your destination or size of boat, we are experts at logistics and transportation and will have your boat shipped (or trucked), cleaned and with everything working flawlessly upon your arrival. In addition, LC8's hydraulic trailer makes moving boats under 36’ a breeze.
We have the resources to transport your boat anywhere in the world and the passion to ensure your experience is easy, stress-free and cost-effective. Your dream is closer than you think!
Storage & Seasonal Prep
LC8 Marine has a full-service inside storage facility in South Eastern Massachusetts. Each year we safely store our clients' boats for annual ‘hibernation’, we winterize all the systems including engine/drives, generators, freshwater and waste systems and store the batteries so everything is ready to go for a punctual Spring launch.
We will also carefully comb your boat from bow to stern and perform a ‘recommended systems analysis’. Engine & system repairs, fiberglass, paint, or buffing, upholstery repair and so forth are all areas we can work on during the winter to ensure your boat is in tip-top condition for when the snow melts.
Safety & Training
Safety at sea is one of our biggest passions. We offer highly customized packages (hourly, weekend or week-long classes) to train our customers and their families on their own boats.
Scott Dyer (LC8's Founder), personally teaches each class and tailors the content to clients' needs. Topics such as safe navigation, boating basics, rules of the road and close quarter maneuvering can be covered as well as specialist content like 'Spouse Education' and 'Kids N Fun'. Clients have told us that these classes are the best money they have spent, and have helped instill confidence in everyone on-board.
New Build Management
If you have ever commissioned a new boat you know how much is involved in the process to get everything done on time, budget and the way you want it. Our approach is to be your advocate in the build process, be in constant contact with the boat builder and ensure that all your needs and requirements are met.
Our relationships extend to most of the large recreational builders in the US.
