“Terrific” Yanmar Diesel Mechanic in Bradenton, Florida

I’ve always said a good, reliable and fair marine mechanic is worth his or her weight in gold!

A terrific Yanmar authorized seasoned and experienced Yanmar mechanic out of Bradenton, FL who works from Sarasota to Bonita Springs, FL is is Kevin McGary….tel: 941-713-3936. He can do it all regarding Yanmars and more.

We contacted Mr McGary for help with a starter and he was booked up but sent us to the shop he works with when something needs to be rebuilt. AWESOME, what a gentleman, and Bill at B and E Auto Electric is lightning fast — thanks so much for pointing us at Kevin McGary!

Kevin come to my boat in Whitfield Estates and found that my bilge leak was diesel fuel, not antifreeze that I had expected. He found that the leaking fuel filter was for Gasoline and not Diesel. The bowl at the bottom was a screw on type and had expanded enough over its 5 year life to slip lose. He replaced it with a raycore diesel filter with a bowl you can see without having to crawl down into the bilge of the Albin 28TE. He also diagnosed the problems with my live well and let me fix it myself. He did remove the old frozen pump and cleaned out the threads in the thru hull with a 3/4″ tap. Thanks Kevin!!!

    Kevin has worked on the two Yanmar diesels on my Voyage 440 catamaran numerous times over the last ten years … he is an awesome mechanic!! I can not say enough terrific things about him. He is polite, reasonable and exceptionally competent. He has travelled to the boat when it was out of its home port to fix serious problems. This guy is the best mechanic I have ever known.
