Marine Mechanic


Great position for experienced Marine Mechanic seeking variety, change of pace, and little supervision.


Marine Mechanic

We are seeking an experienced Marine Mechanic for the start of the 2023 season and beyond.  This position is for someone that likes to work on his/her own with little direction or supervision.  The Marine Mechanic will be responsible for all maintenance, service, and repair work of our storage customer boats, rental boats, and general marina related equipment.  An ideal candidate brings experience, expertise, thoroughness, attention to detail, self-direction, enthusiasm and enjoys the variety and flexibility this position has to offer.  We are not a production run style servicing marine facility with hundreds to thousands of boats but one that is more relaxed. This is a full-time 6 month-seasonal position from approximately May 1 through November 1.

It is very important to us that we get the best person for this position and so there is a lot of flexibility for the right candidate depending on their circumstances, needs, and desires.  The Marine Mechanic will work alongside the Office Manager and Owner for all things related to customer communication, scheduling, service requests, work orders, etc.

The Marine Mechanic position is ideally a M-F 8:30-4:30 or 9-5 position with some flexibility.  Possible 4-day week during part of the summer season.  No Saturdays or weekends except in the rare circumstance to get a rental boat back on the water quickly.
