Black Gang Marine Joins The Hub


This month the Port Solent team gave a warm welcome to new tenant Black Gang Marine Limited, an independent firm offering customers marine engineering and bow-to-stern technical services.

Black Gang Marine is made up of a team of specialists who deliver the highest level of vessel care and technical support. The team is led by Managing Director, Marc Godden, who draws on 18 years of marine engineering experience that has seen long stints with Volvo Penta, MAN, ZF and MTU Agents.  Since the inception of BGM Marc focussed on building the foundations of a quality marine engineering service and now, with permanent premises in place, the company is set fair to offer an independent professional and well organised service centre.

Bringing a wealth of experience in working on board a variety of vessels such as leading motorboat brands, Princess, Fairline, Sunseeker, Sealine, Azimut and Bavaria, the BGM team is able to offer comprehensive technical support - from routine service work to equipment overhauls, inboard engine and drive support, electrical repairs and installations.

Managing Director Marc Godden commented: “We are absolutely delighted to call Port Solent our home. Having worked across the South Coast for nearly 20 years - with over half of that time spent working for motor yacht sales and service centres, located in other local Premier sites, Port Solent has always been where we wanted to establish premises, develop the business and expand our services.

Prior to being welcomed onsite as a tenant, we successfully supported many of Port Solent’s berth holders as visiting contractors. Our reputation for the highest level of service, coupled with our relentless drive for customer satisfaction has naturally produced organic growth for the business, even in these turbulent times.

As we all ride out this challenging winter, rest reassured that we are ready to support the marina with engineering and technical services post-lockdown, post-Covid and into the glorious summer that we all deserve.”

With a brand new workshop and soon to open reception area and showroom, following lockdown, customers can visit Black Gang Marine at 16 The Slipway, located adjacent to the lift bay, at the marina or contact them on 07557386969 or by email service@blackgangmarine.co.uk.
