John B. - Enigma:
"As promised, I wanted to provide some words to show my gratitude for the work that you have invested in taking great care of my Elliott 1050, Enigma1. You and your team have ensured that Enigma1 looks sparklingly finished. Whether it is a routine antifoul, or polish of the Black topsides, I know that the boat is in great hands due to your sound planning, preparation and execution of your work. I also place particular value in your communication style and honest commitment. Specifically, Thank you for your integrity in how you undertook the recent work on Enigma1, when you honoured your word, and revisited the paintwork on the rudder. Expectation management is critical in your business; in this case, you exceeded my expectations. I am a regular customer of Above and Below Marine, and there is a bloody good reason for my regularity. Best regards, John"
Stephen Stones - Villanelle:
"Hi Bryce, We normally hear lots when things go bad but very little when things go well so I wanted to take the time to write and thank you for what I can only call exceptional customer service by both you and Paul. I rang you with concerns over cracked fairing in my hull/keel joint after the boat was lifted from her cradle the night before resplashing, instead of the standard 'nothing I can do' answers we receive most of the time from most suppliers you responded by jumping in your car, driving across Auckland in peak hour traffic and working late into the evening to provide me with a solution I was happy with. Paul then got up early to ensure the new filler was sanded, primed and painted before I was dropped back in the water. Exceptional customer service and the kind of customer commitment that keeps your customers coming back year after year. Thanks again, really appreciated."
Simon Kidd - Beacon Ltd:

Above and Below offer high quality Antifouling with a smooth racing finishes to most of New Zealand?s top racing and cruising yachts such as Icebreaker, Omega, Vamos and TP52 Viento. Great work team"
Dominic Lowe - Team Windcraft New Zealand Branch Manager:
?Windcraft New Zealand employ the services of Above and Below Marine for all of our antifoul requirements. We have found them to be very professional and a pleasure to deal with. All their work has been completed on time, to the dollar value as quoted and to a very high standard. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of our customers.?
Dave Frederic Commodore Ponsonby Cruising Club, owner Antipodes II:
"Last year I purchased a six year old Oceanis 40. The vendor had been very poor with his hull maintenance, so I decided to remove all the old antifouling, re-prime the hull, and apply new antifoul. I started the job, after two days of scraping became totally over the size and difficulty of what I had started, then called Bryce. His team had the hull cleaned off in just over a day, filled and faired areas that had never been done at boat launch, epoxy primed, and painted the boat so it looked like new. It was so good, I got them to cut and polish the topsides as well. Extremely pleased with the result, and I will be using them again this year."
Jake Jacobson - Yacht Management Auckland:
"Just a brief note to say how pleased we have been with the service from Above & Below Marine. You respond to our request quickly and diligently, often with short notice. The work is carried out with care and attention and you communicate the status which is always appreciated. All this with good humour thrown in!Thank you Above & Below Marine
?Prompt, reliable & friendly staff to work with ? the service is fantastic?
"Bryce at Above and Below Marine have helped keep my boat V5?s antifouling clean for a number of years. He is 100% reliable and does a really excellent job."
Being keen boaties all our life we understand the passion and pleasure we derive from time on the water, also she is your investment that needs to be protected from all the elements. We are small enough to give our Valued Clients an unequalled level of service at an extremely competitive price.
When the boat is out of the water, we are happy to work with other Contractors to get the job done in a timely manner and as we are at the hardstand we can help manage the whole project for no extra cost. For example if she requires more than antifouling, we can arrange other contractors for engine servicing, touch ups, vinyl replacement, and repairs etc.

We are a couple of mad yachties, we have enjoyed sailing, racing, fishing and socialising on the water for years.
I (Toni) was bought up at Westhaven my father Flap Martinengo was the Custodian for 21 years, we lived where the Marina Office is now. I have seen lots of changes at Westhaven throughout the years. Dad owned the Namu, the Young NZ37 which still racing successfully to this day.
Bryce and I owned a Young 88 Instigator, which we family cruised and raced extensively. Introduced many people to sailing through our Datacom Sponsorship. Today we enjoy our Young 12.
With our obvious passion on anything water related it was only a matter of time that we extended this into our working life. We enjoy being in the boating fraternity and truly believe we give our Valued Clients an unequalled level of service, as we would expect ourselves.
