     Being the only remaining boat yard in the area set up to accommodate recreational boaters, Cabrillo Boat Shop is reaching out to everyone that would be effected by this for help in assisting us with shedding light on the situation. There is NO JUST CAUSE for what is happening and minimal notice or opportunity for recourse has been given.

     Cabrillo Boat shop going out of business would mean that boaters would have to travel 4 hours each way to Marina Del Rey, 3 hours to Redondo Beach, or Seal Beach. Having to travel so far would not only be financially devastating for boaters but potentially dangerous for any boats in distress or needing immediate service, especially if they have never been to the area before.

     In addition to being a significant additional cost and inconvenience to all customers of local marinas, this would discourage people from properly maintaining their boat. We have had 40 years here to develop long lasting business and personal relationships with many families and friends. To put us out of business is unethical and effects not only the people who come here but the families that depend on their jobs at Cabrillo Boat Shop. Some of our guys here have been working for over 30 years, experience like that isn’t easy to come by and many boaters come here for that exact reason. 

              We are reaching out to all to help with the situation at hand. We hope that you could inform any and all boaters of what is happening and allow us to post bulletins where appropriate.  If anyone has suggestions or insight to help us resolve this issue, we encourage all to contact us here at the office or call myself directly. Ava will be answering all calls at the office 562-951-5768. I can be reached on my cell phone at 310-480-4138.  We can also be reached via social media, we are on Facebook (Cabrillo Boat Shop) and Twitter (@CabrilloBoat). Thank you in advance for any and all help with this, we are working as hard as possible to ensure that we don’t go out of business so that we may continue to provide quality service for all of you who need it.
