Each year, we at Commodore’s Boats meet with well over 100 boat owners, yacht enthusiasts, traditional tugboat and fishing companies in the Vancouver and Greater Vancouver area with respect to repair and maintenance. And because so many folks know our thoughts and feelings (from this website) on all things “boat repair”, they often ask us who are some of the other competitors we have in the area. Who are the best boat repair companies in Vancouver or the Greater Vancouver area?
