Good Experience at RPM Diesel and Rolly Marine in Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 06-08-2012

Rolly Marine Service, Inc. lists itself as “The Biggest Little Shipyard in South Florida” and is located on the New River, 2551 St. Rd. 84 (Marina Mile), Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33312 and RPM Diesel is next door at 2555 St. Rd 84. See Websites below.

Please note that we have no connection with RPM Diesel or Rolly Marine Services other than being totally satisfied customers. We gladly take this opportunity to share our story on this forum as it may help other members of MTOA who find themselves in a similar situation as ourselves.
Heading north this year, after a late start from Marathon, our normally reliable starboard engine, Detroit 4 53, started to overheat and the engine oil showed signs of contamination with diesel fuel.
After research we were directed to RPM Diesel [ Contact: Mike Desderio. [305] 947 2607],who recommended Rollys Marine Services [ Contact: Greg. {954} 583 5300} a shipyard on the New River as it is adjacent to RPMs office and work shop. A brief word about Rollys, this is a full service shipyard for mega yachts, our 44 FT Thompson, LILY MARIA, became known affectionately as the “little boat” but the care and attention extended to us made us feel like we had the “largest boat” in the yard. Prices for dockage most reasonable considering the area, Marina Row.
RPM Technicians diagnoised our problem, recommended solutions, had new parts ready and installed within 24 hours, price was very competitive with other mechanics who perhaps do not have the experience,training and facilities offered by RPM. Parts for 4 53 Detroits, no longer in production, are hard to find but RPM had the resources to supply replacement parts where needed. Work and parts are subject to guarantee. Prices competitive with industry standards.
Subsequently we had a second, but unrelated problem, experienced in the Lake Worth area, on contacting RPM they had “our” Technician dockside at Old Port Cove Marina. within 2 hours of our initial contact. He arrived in a fully equipped mobile workshop,. No shade tree mechanics here.
With our Detroits humming like tops we are looking forward to some good cruising this summer.
