Dear Dennis,

"I just wanted to send you a little note about how impressed I was not only with you and your team, but the Private Websites you set up for myself and my owner to track and follow the job right from our computers 24/7. 

It has been hassle free, very informative and has cut down on the time I have to explain the process to my owner. 

Dennis, you have completed 4 refits on 4 different yachts for me now and the websites have been extremely effective for me. To tell you the truth, I don’t know why other yacht service companies don’t offer this type of product. 

Many thanks to you and your team and we will be back next year for another full refit."

"Dear Dennis,

I just wanted to send you a little note about how impressed I was not only with you and your team, but the private websites you set up for myself and my owner to track and follow the job right from our computers 24/7.  It has been hassle free, very informative and has cut down on the time I have to explain the process to my owner.

Dennis, you have completed 4 refits on 4 different yachts for me now and the websites have been extremely effective for me.  To tell you the truth, I don't know why other yacht service companies don't offer this type of product.

Many thanks to you and your team and we will be back next year for a full refit."

"We recently installed a set of 12 square foot Naiad stabilizers on the 120 ft. motor yacht "Charisma." After reviewing various bids, I contracted Foster's Yacht Services to do the block placement and structural reinforcement of the hull. I found the personnel at Foster's to be highly competent and skilled at their jobs. Dennis Foster personally oversaw the project and was physically at the job site each day. He worked directly with the naval architect to make sure everything was done to their specifications. The project was finished on time and within budget. I intend to use Foster's Yacht Services for future projects as they arise."

"Dear Dennis,

As you know, I recently brought my brand new 2008 Azimut to Foster's Yacht Services for a new boat warranty repair and some customization work I was seeking to have done. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the work completed and found you to be both knowledgeable and professional throughout the process.

I would like to express my gratitude for expertly supervising the repairs and working with Azimut to facilitate the warranty work, for timely project completion, inspecting the boat personally and for making what appear to be flawless repairs.

This level of service and quality workmanship guarantees that an already satisfied customer will be a "customer for life". When the time comes, I look forward to working with you and your team at Foster's again."

"Dear Dennis,

I would like to commend you and your staff for the customization you performed on my 65 Hatteras SF FINALE. The yacht looks and runs like a brand new boat from the factory. I never imagined my 65 to ever look like this. Every little item that you all worked on was completed not only in a timely fashion but came out as close to perfect as one could ever imagine! I could not find a single issue with any of the work completed. The interior work, especially the High Gloss Cherry finish, appears as if the wood was a mirror.

I was completely blown away with the look and overall attention to detail your staff paid to this Yacht, they are true professionals. The Electronics you recommended and the layout on the bridge was terrific. The training your staff provided and the installation of all the equipment was again unreal!

What really made the Yacht a masterpiece was the exterior paint finish, the Yacht Paint Shines, Day and Nigh. I maybe the most anal Boat owner you will ever meet. I am crazy about the Boat staying clean and looking brand new. What you did with the Paint and non-Skid is the cleanest job I have ever seen. Working with Foster's Yacht Services was the best find for my 65 Hatteras FINALE and my family.

You have always been very fair and kept me in the loop about even the smallest change order! I only can say one thing to you, that is THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! You made my Boat, a Dream come True! From me and my Family, We Thank You All! I am forever indebted to you!"

"Dear Foster's Yacht Services,

It was a pleasure to work with you during the up fit of the Hatteras 60 Enclosed Bridge, "Premium Gold". Custom work can be challenging, and you met the challenge of my expectations."

"I used Foster's Yacht Services to repaint the hull of a vessel that had been scratched. Rather than a touch up the owner elected to have the entire hull redone. The job turned out very nice, in fact better than when it was new. After picking the boat up and taking it back to the owner's dock we noticed a sag in the top edge of the paint immediately below the rub rail on the aft starboard side. A Foster's crew was dispatched immediately to the owner's house in Miami Beach and they did a perfect repair. We really appreciated the fact that Foster's stood behind their work and took the time and care to make the job absolutely perfect. I will not hesitate to use them again."

Kind Regards,

Richard Kniffin CPYB

"I worked with Foster's Yacht Services recently on completing the prep work and installing some additional options for a new yacht delivery. Dennis and the team at Fosters worked hard to complete the work on-time and they definitely stood by their quotes. However, I was really impressed with how they went above and beyond to satisfy my client. Dennis went out of his way to do extra-cutting and custom-make some pieces to make absolutely sure the dingy was secure. Fosters exceeded my expectations and in the future I plan to recommend them to my clients."
