MerCruiser workshop powers up on Gold Coast
New stern drive service centre open for business at Coomera.
The marine precinct at Coomera on the Gold Coast has a new outlet for Mercury MerCruiser servicing and engine repowers with the opening of Boat Service Gold Coast. Former owner of Nitro Marine, Michael Waugh, recently opened the workshop based at The Boat Works to focus on servicing larger vessels with MerCruiser stern drives.
“Our team will look after all necessary bookings for your annual maintenance,” said Waugh. “Being located in The Boat Works complex on the Coomera River, we will also arrange additional services such as antifoul or detailing on your behalf if required.”
Waugh said that, as a certified MerCruiser dealer, the business specialises in repowering older vessels with the new range of V6 and V8 MerCruiser engines, available as engine-only or full packages with new stern drives. This includes the new 4.5L and 6.2L models which offer increased fuel economy and reliability. Boat owners can also take advantage of Mercury Diesel when considering a repower.
“For anybody looking to purchase a used boat, we also specialise in pre-purchase engine inspections to alert you of potential issues or repairs that you should know about before finalising a purchase,” said Waugh. “As a Club Marine agent, we can also quote on any engine related claims you may have.”
