About AMS

Affordable Marine Service was originally established 30 years ago 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 fisherman out there, we can also get you fully prepped and ready for the season with all types of on board bait systems, outriggers, etc. You name it. If it has to do with boats, we tackle it!
