Service and Maintenance
As a full service marina, Bass River Marina is dedicated to helping each of our customers keep their boats operating reliably, efficiently and safely throughout the boating season.
Our award-winning service department contains factory-certified and trained marine mechanics who offer the best in service technology and know-how for Yamaha and Evinrude/Bombardier outboard motors, Mercury Marine and Volvo/Penta inboard engines, and many other marine motor parts and engines.
Bass River Marina has one of the only fuel-injector testors on Cape Cod, allowing our technicians to test and tune the fuel injectors in your boat on site, saving you time and money. Our spring commissioning and winterization programs offer the state-of-the-art service involved in closing down your boat for the winter and getting it ready for prime-time again in the spring.
From fluid checks to major overhauls, the experienced technicians at Bass River Marina can be trusted to get your boat in the water and keep it there for the duration of your boating season.
When the weather warms up, it’s time to take your boat out of wraps and get it ready for the season.
Our service staff will perform the usual spring commissioning for your craft, including: remove and dispose of the shrink wrap, repaint the bottom and anti-foul the trim tabs and outdrive, charge the batteries, clean and wax the hull, topsides and cabin, clean and polish the brightwork and replace any canvas. Our service technicians will tune up your engine, change the oil and filters, purge hydraulic steering lines, inspect and check all systems including fresh water, head, A/C, generator; recondition the propellers, check the fuel injector systems, and test the electronics.
With all that and more, your boat will be humming the first time you take her out and continue that way all season long!

Winterization & Storage
Here in New England, most boats are hauled for the winter. Our service technicians can perform the usual winterization processes for your boat and engine. These include: stabilizing the fuel, flush, drain and cooling systems, spray the engine with anti-corrosion fluid and disconnect the batteries, lube and change the oil and filters, check and store props and hoses. All A/C, fresh water, head, raw water and canvas systems are checked and stored for winter.
