It is with great pleasure that I can highly recommend Ship Shape Services...

I have been using Ship Shape for over 15 years to look after all my boating needs, including cleaning, servicing, maintenance and preparation for cruising. I have found them to be very professional, attentive, prompt and skilled in providing all the services a boat owner would require. I have personally known and worked with the proprietor, Garry Crowhurst, over the entire period and cannot recommend him highly enough. We have a very good relationship and over the years have formed a trust that gives me the utmost confidence when entrusting the care of my boat to him.

The Ship Shape Services team did an amazing job...

...on removing the oxidization from my Sea Ray 40 Motor Yacht. It now looks brand new. It has a Pewter coloured hull and everyone who looks at the boat asks me if we have just had it repainted.

The detailers work hard and pay close attention to detail. I would highly recommend Ship Shape to anyone

My boat was covered in mold, general dirt...

...and had black ground in rubber from the boots of a generator that was dragged across the deck. I put off cleaning it myself due to the amount of work involved. I called Ship Shape Services and they did a fantastic job. I never expected the boat to look this good ever again.

Ship Shape Services have been washing and polishing... Hanse 575 sailboat for over a year now. I have found Ship Shape to be both professional and competent. The attention to detail and the care they take in executing their work are second to none. I have owned this boat for over 7 years and have suffered through numerous boat washers and none compare with Ship Shape’s work.

I am more than happy to recommend Ship Shape to anyone who truly loves their boat.

Thank you so much for your hard work...

...on our 44’ Riviera today. The boat looks better than the day we bought it new. We look forward to using you for our future needs and will highly recommend you!!

My wife and I are very busy...

...and have been looking for a professional maintenance service for “Mindless” for a few years. Garry and his teams have surpassed my expectations. The boat look great and we are enjoying the extra time at the end of the weekend. I have been boating since 1982 and have used a lot of companies to take care of my boat. I contacted Garry last September to take care of my boat and his team have done a great job ever since. The boat looks great on the outside and in the cabins.

I finally found someone who knows what they are doing, Thank you.

After being disappointed in a number of detailers...

...we came across Ship Shape Services. They spent all day working on our 34’ sailboat and we were very impressed. The words Ship Shape truly describes their workmanship, punctuality and their results.

Our boat has never looked as good. As bright and shiny as new.

I’ve tried several different detailing companies...

...and none of them compared to Ship Shape. I would highly recommend Ship Shape for all your boat detailing needs.

Over the past year and a half Garry and his team...

...of detailers have kept my vessel “Liberator”, (a 75’ Monte Fino) in pristine condition. They have maintained her with the highest levels of quality and attention to detail. Ian, the Operations Manager, has always kept me informed about new products and been proactive with her services. Garry’s company is regarded highly and sought after in the Sydney and Middle Harbour waters. As a businessman, value and customer service at the top of my list. Garry is no different as he understands these concepts and will undoubtedly be very successful in his boat detailing business.

The boat looked great...

...I am glad I was referred to you people. I am impressed with the amount of time you invested and the knowledge that you have for detailing. It’s hard to find people that do business as I do.

You actually do it better!

Many thanks for your care factor... dealing with my boats over the last couple of weeks. Your attention to detail and follow up is sadly missing in many businesses today.


I appreciated your efforts in sorting all of this out for us.
