About Dave Crawford Marine

How it all began

Back in 1985 Dave Crawford opened up shop from a small shed near Gosport Street in Lymington to cater for the marine servicing and repair needs of the yachting and boating community in the local area.

Things have grown somewhat since those days, and today Dave Crawford Marine is run from a large workshop facility. Staffed by highly skilled marine engineers, the quality of our marine repairs and servicing reflects the high standards that the Dave Crawford name is known for.

Dave Crawford Marine is building a good reputation for the work in the Superyacht market, with our engineers flying around the world to tend to various Superyachts wherever they be at that time

Over the years, we’ve become locally and internationally recognised for our ability to provide trusted and reliable marine servicing and repairs for clients from Hampshire and the Solent to across the UK and abroad – all based out of our workshop in Lymington. This is because our expert services meet all our clients’ marine repairs and servicing needs, including:

  • Outboard repair
  • Outboard servicing
  • Inboard repair

Internationally known for our dedication to high standards, we regularly send our teams of engineers to work on Superyachts around the world, we also work on high performance engines in a series of race boats and ribs has also won Dave Crawford Marine numerous awards in recognition of the quality of our marine repairs and servicing.

Looking to the future

Sadly, in 2011 Dave Crawford passed away; with his years of knowledge and expertise, this was undoubtedly a significant loss for the marine industry. However, the legacy of his hard work continues to live on through the ongoing success of the company he founded in that small shed in Lymington nearly 30 years ago, Dave Crawford Marine is still owned by his family and to the day is still providing a quality service to our clients, with a second generation involved. Pat Mursell has been with Dave Crawford since 1994 and still has a vast unrivalled knowledge of the products. Pat (MR PARTS CATALOGUE) still holds more part no’s in his brain than any database!!

Dave Crawford Marine has carried on growing in terms of quality and strength, just as Dave would have expected, and each and every member of our team is committed to upholding the respect for his name by providing the absolute best quality in marine servicing and repairs to all our clients, whether in Hampshire or any part of the world.
