Client Testimonials


Layton's is very knowledgeable ...

I was recommended to Layton's Boatworks when I was looking for knowledgeable people to help me survey a boat of interest in October 2010. Doug was mentioned as a very qualified and experience mechanic that was well respected in the Yanmar engine field. Doug helped me review the boat along with another certified boat surveyor. I was well satisfied with results of the inspection and when it came time to accomplish the repairs required I asked Doug for an estimate. He and Carlton helped me move the boat to Layton's and develop a plan for repair – minus the winter weather. I am well satisfied with both the advice and work that was done and feel that Layton's Boatworks was a big help to me as well as the work place of two knowledgeable gentlemen in the marine repair market place.

A Long Time Customer ...

"I've been a customer of Layton's Boat Works for about six years; the company has been the exclusive dealership and servicing agent for the Yanmar 6YLA - STP that's installed in my Mainship Pilot 34. There are several other boatyards that are closer to me but because of their outstanding customer service and tecnical expertise, I have used Layton's for all my servicing needs. Doug Layton has always been very responsive to my requests and makes the time to travel from Edenton to my marina in order to do whatever is necessary on my boat. In addition, I recently had an emergency situation while underway and Doug was immediately able to resolve the issue with me on the phone, even before I was back in my marina! The office staff, particularly April Layton, puts customer service first on their priorities and I've always experienced rapid response to every phone call I've made to the folks there. Based on my history with Layton's, I would recommend them very highly. They are a great company to deal with."

Worth the Drive ...

In 2003 I had the misfortune of encountering serious damage to my Volvo Penta gas engine while tuna fishing off Montauk, NY. After nearly a month of research on engines and boat repair shops along with a trip from home in Connecticut to Edenton, NC, I decided to have Layton’s Custom Boatworks install a new Yanmar diesel engine into my boat. Despite the challenge of having my boat transported nearly 900 miles to make this repower possible, I could not have been happier.

For both Carlton and Doug Layton, this repowering project from gas to diesel of my 1996 25’ Carolina Classic was their first attempt at this jackshaft style conversion. Since my boat was done, it is my understanding that they have completed many other projects of the same nature. Eight years later I remain totally satisfied with their work, ethics, honesty and competitive pricing. Since that repower I have made a special trip to NC to have maintenance repairs made to my Volvo outdrive.

Needless-to-say, my level of comfort in their workmanship is worth my long drive, but more so my feeling of confidence in the engine’s performance when I am 50 miles offshore is priceless! To this day both Doug and Carlton are most receptive to my telephone calls when I am seeking honest advice on my engine and/or outdrive. They have always given me their undivided attention and provided me with the direction I needed.

In the event you may be considering a repowering project to be done by Layton’s Boatworks, not only would I highly recommend them but I would be most happy to provide you additional detail about my experience. Please feel free to contact me by requesting my telephone number from April Layton.

Sincerely

Lou Rascoe
