Getting the Job Done Right
the FIRST Time

Service you can trust

First Watch Marine primarily specializes in two sectors of marine services: we are a Mercury Marine Authorized Premier dealership certified to service Mercury outboards, sterndrives, inboards, and diesel products, and we have ABYC certified technicians with experience with marine electrical, marine systems and marine corrosion.

We are certified to provide diagnostics, repairs and service of Mercury outboards, MerCruiser gas engines, MerCruiser Diesel engines, MerCruiser outdrives, Zeus pod systems, and SmartCraft control and monitoring systems, including joystick piloting systems.

Our team has many years of experience with marine onboard systems diagnostics, repairs, upgrades and new installations. We are an ABYC member and have ABYC Certified Technicians on staff to ensure work is done properly and safely the first time.​

First Watch Marine offers mobile service to your boat in her slip or at your home. In many cases, it is more economical to troubleshoot problems or provide services on your boat at your location rather than bringing the boat to the boatyard.

Ideal for the boat owner who lives out of town for part or all of the year, or who is too busy to visit the boat regularly yet wants to make sure the vessel and her systems are turn-key and ready to go so when the opportunity comes up to go boating.

George Malhiot

As a surveyor, I work with many mechanics and service personnel. I was quite impressed with Gary and his team with the mechanical survey of the Zeus Drives as well as the Cummins Diesels. Very Professional and explains the operation of the system to the buyer of the vessel and upfront as to the care and frequency of servicing these drives. I'll be referring clients that request service and who or where to go for the San Diego Area.

Outstanding in every way. Quality of work, honest pricing, communication and customer service! Have been taking our Mercruiser boat here for regular maintenance and warranty work and are ALWAYS struck with the excellent service and care! Can’t ask for anything more.

Really a great company! Diagnostics were spot on, the work was completed on schedule and the cost was very reasonable. You won't do better than First Watch Marine
