What Our Customers Say


“This is the second time I have taken a yacht out in the Port Adriano Shipyard. The circumstances were such that I had to ask to be hauled at very short notice. Mark and John of Marlin Marine could not have been more helpful. Like my previous time, I have had every service at my disposal.

Mark and John have been at the helm of Marlin Marine for some time now. There is no task too great. No problem too difficult. No request too extraordinary. The workshops in the yard are first class and are equipped to handle any job required. Mark and John have gathered a team of skilled and professional personnel who can be relied upon the deliver friendly service and the quality of work we have come to expect from a yacht maintenance company.
I can highly recommend Marlin Marine for their services and yard facilities.”

“During our search for a smaller yacht and a mooring in Mallorca we had the pleasure of meeting John Haynes from Marlin Marine Services. His understanding, commitment and knowledge towards our problems and issues were extraordinary. What impressed us beside this was the approach of complete transparency and honesty, which we have not experienced in this industry anywhere else before. The combination of high service quality and competence and extraordinary customer care with transparency and honesty makes us writing this testimonial and recommendation for John Haynes and Marlin Marine Services. 100 stars out of 10!”

“Marlin Marine have worked on board Black Pearl since she first came to Palma from the build shipyard. They have been servicing the onboard Yanmar, and their work has always been of the highest standard. Neat, tidy and on-time. In the last couple of years we have made modifications to the engine and particularly the drive unit, and the team at Marlin have always found the best solution, and been able to retro fit into an extremely tight engine room space. Very impressive and I can highly recommend them, and I will be using them in the future.

“Just a quick mail to say thank you for the work carried out by Mason, Stan and your metal worker. His name escapes me. I appreciated the no-nonsense approach of John and Mark when assessing the job. Once again Marlin Marine deliver where others have failed.

Great to have your boys aboard. Thank you very much.”

Captain Daniel Brown


“I would strongly recommend Marlin Marine. For me as Captain, it was a very simple decision. I did not have to micro manage them. If any issues came up, they consulted with me and just got on my frequent inspections.  I was always pleased with the progress and the level of briefing and information afforded to me by Mark & John. They also put a lot of care and attention into avoiding damage to Elizaveta which has a metallic gold paint job.”

Although a job of this nature has the potential to be very stressful, in this case it was a very rewarding process. If the need and opportunity arose I would certainly work with the Marlin team again. I would certainly recommend them to any boat captain or owner.”

“Our letter of appreciation for Marlin Marine is easily written.  A team with the expertise, time and friendliness to assist on any task with ease.  Joining the yacht in January, moments before a shipyard period, the team at Marlin Marine were on hand from the very get go.  From a 6 week shipyard period, to spontaneous issues through the season, they have made my role a lot less stressful with their confidence, workmanship and care towards their customers and projects at hand.  It has been a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to another winter season under the Marlin Marine umbrella.”

“As the captain of a 32m motor yacht, which has been based in Mallorca for many, many years, I have had the opportunity to work with Marlin Marine and many other Mallorca based yacht service companies.  “Marlin” stands with some of the very best, not only because of their experience and expertise in the yacht marine engineering field, but because of their experience and expertise in demands and understanding the need to respect agreed upon quotations.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Marlin Marine for the mechanical, hydraulic and metal fabrication items on my worklist the next time I haul out in Port Adriano.”

Bryn Roberts
Captain M/Y Smooth Operator


“I have been using Mark and John at Marlin Marine since 2016 on 2 separate vessels, including our tenders and toys.  Whether it’s mechanical repairs, maintenance, shipyard works or fabrication, they have always been my go-to company due to their honesty, efficiency, and willingness to help.  No job is too big or small.  Marlin Marine have serviced propeller shafts, stabilisers, hydraulic platforms, plus many more items over the years and always without issues and even meeting nearly seemingly impossible deadlines.  The team at Marlin Marine including Mark, John, the engineers and the office staff have always been fair, honest and reliable, which is why I will continue to use them for years to come.”
