Boat Engine Repairs And Restoration Services In The Pacific Northwest

Some of the best boat engine and drive mechanics in the Pacific Northwest repower, repair and restore vintage and classic wood power boats, engines and drive systems in Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls, Idaho. The Lake Coeur d’Alene area of North Idaho offers boat enthusiasts opportunities to buy or restore wooden boats including classics, antiques and vintage models. The Hagadone Marine Group (Coeur d’Alene) has a custom boat building and restoration facility in Post Falls. Restoring and rebuilding classic wood powered boats, yachts, cruisers, runabouts, speedboats and other watercraft requires the expertise of restoration specialists and experienced mechanics. The Resort Boat Shop provides expert mechanics for repairing new or old powered custom wood boats and classic models, or even one-of-a-kind, custom-built boats.

Experts For Restoring Antique, Vintage And Classic Wood Power Boats

The Resort Boat Shop’s staff is dedicated to classic boat restoration; this includes wood powered boats of all types. Our staff repairs old engines, custom-builds new boats with sails or new engines, and we can repower, overhaul or replace engines for vintage and classic boats, particularly speedboats, cruisers and runabouts.

Our experienced lead mechanics have worked on many different brands of engines, electronics and power systems. We also have the service of two Master Boat Builders and support personnel for complete boat restoration projects. Our basic engine repairs, overhauls or parts replacements include:

• Overhauling and repairing engines for old and new boats
• Repowering drives and boat engines
• Repairing or completely overhauling and replacing direct drives and boat engines on a case by case basis
• Repairing, complete rebuilding or installation sterndrive components and systems
• Repairing, overhauling or replacing V-drive parts as required, or complete V-drive replacement
• Repairing, replacing or upgrading vintage and classic boat electrical systems
• Upgrading electronics and navigation equipment

Our lead mechanics are fully trained for work on specific manufacturer’s engines. Each has worked on many different manufacturer’s systems including Volvo Penta, Mercruiser, and Cobalt engine/drive systems. However, for older electrical systems, drives or engines, replacements may be needed instead of repairs and this really is on a case-by-case basis or per the wishes of the boat owners. Many repairs on older, vintage or classic wood powered boats depend upon the owner’s wishes, OEM or custom parts availability, or may require a complete engine replacement.

The level of our engine repairs, repowers or replacement services depend on how a customer wishes to restore a vintage wooden boat.

Expert Mechanics Serve Boating Enthusiasts From All Of The Country

Our engine and drive repairs and restoration services for antique, vintage, and classic wooden power boats are not just for residents of North Idaho or Eastern Washington.
