Custom Boat Repairs is located at 8607 River Road, North Bergen, New Jersey. This location has a large enclosed temporary shelter with a 150,000 BTU heater inside. This enables Bill to provide year-round expert repairs. For boats that are bigger then this temporary shelter, Bill builds a wooden structure around the boat and then covers this structure in shrink-wrap. A portable heater is then installed which keeps the work area warm. Since equipment can remain set up, more time can be given to your boat and the repair is done quicker. Repairs done in his yard are more economical for the owner since there is no travel time, setup time, gas or tolls. Custom Boat Repairs recently purchased a New Hydraulic Trailer. Free trailer service to and from the shop is available for some repair jobs.
