San Diego's #1 Powerboat Service & Repair Facility


   Affordable Marine Service was launched in 1986 by Dennis and Laura-Marie Allen. Both Dennis and Laura-Marie are boaters themselves and are well aware of what their fellow boaters have come to expect from a marine repair facility.
   Here at AMS we service and repair all makes of boats as well as all brands of power packages. Our Certified mechanics are fully qualified to handle any task. As well as being fully insured, our service & repair facility is unrivaled in the San Diego area.
   We have the capability of offering a vast array of knowledge in all aspects of boat service and repair including engines (both inboard and outboard), outdrive repair and replacement, boat handling accessories, maintenance as well as performance and communication products.
   And for the fishermen/women out there, we can also get you fully prepped and ready for the season with all types of onboard bait systems, outriggers, etc. You name it. If it has to do with boats, we tackle it!
   We're conveniently located in the downtown San Diego area, with easy access allowing for quick and painless boat delivery and pick up. Our service and repair facility is unrivaled in the San Diego area, with certified mechanics that are fully qualified, as well as insured, and more than capable of handling any boating related task.


   Here at AMS we specialize in servicing and repairing all makes of powerboats as well as all brands of power packages. Whether it be a pleasureboat such as a Sea Ray, Wellcraft, Maxum, MasterCraft, Ski Nautique, Four Winns, Harris Kayot, Formula, Bayliner or any of today's popular powerboats.
   Perhaps you're one of the many Weekend Warriors out there that take their weekend fishing excursions much more seriously, knowing that speed, efficiency and dependability can mean the difference between reaching your limit and coming up short. Once again, AMS is there for you. We cater to owners of popular boats with names such as Grady White, Cabo, Boston Whaler, Pro Kat, Polar, Skipjack, Sea Swirl, Sea Pro, Blackman, Stringari and many others.
   When it comes to power packages, either I/O, Outboard or Inboards, brands such as MerCruiser, Volvo Penta, Cobra, Yamaha, Honda, Johnson / Evinrude start off the list. If your boat is 16' to 35', has a fuel tank and is not powered by the wind, chances are we work on it.

Need your battery system repaired? We've got you covered there as well. What about electronics, such as VHF radios, GPS systems, Fish Finders, anything electronics related.

   Our boatyard is large enough to accommodate up to 50 boats and is equipped with a 35,000 lb. overhead hoist, forklifts, and all the necessary diagnostic equipment to evaluate your engine needs, Affordable Marine Service has you covered.


Long story short, Dennis fixed my boat in a few days. He took it out on a couple hour test drive to make sure she ran great. When I picked it up, Dennis showed me everything they worked on, the parts they replaced, and told me to give him a call any time. I highly recommend this shop.

Love women helping women! Laura was so awesome. I was looking for a place to get my boat trailer fixed… she couldn’t help at the time but referred me to someone that could help me the same day! Thank you for the advice and help. I will definitely use this company in the future!

After Dennis and his team pulled the engine they found that there was a hole in the oil pan and the manifolds and risers were a disaster! Within a week and a half, the boat was completely repaired, water tested and back in the water in time for Father’s Day. No hidden charges.
