Jarrett Bay Boatworks Service Department has expanded existing amenities at our 175-acre Beaufort, NC yard to make the Jarrett Bay Marine Park your one-stop-shop now servicing gas and diesel inboard/outboards, outdrives, sail drives, generators, air conditioning & refrigeration systems, outboards and personal water craft.
Joel Topie has been hired as Jarrett Bay’s Shop Manager after spending the last decade as the Service Manager for National Boat Mart in Indianapolis. Topie’s in-depth small engine service knowledge base began at the Inland Marine Institute, where he graduated with honors in 1985. Topie has since worked with several marine service providers gaining extensive experience in trouble shooting and repairing a wide variety of marine engines and systems, as well as Onan and Westerbeke generators. In addition to receiving Yamaha Service Managers training, he is also a Yamaha Technical Training Honors Graduate, a Mercruiser Master Technician, an OMC Outboard Master Technician, Mercury Outboard Certified, OMC Cobra Certified, and Honda Outboard Certified.
Topie will join the JBBW family on April 18 to better provide customers with a comprehensive roster of services. Topie will also oversee our current Outside Machinist Group, which consists of six mechanics and our ABYC Certified Yard Electrician and Assistant.
Herb Roberts, a 20-year small engine service vet, will be joining Topie to provide extensive mechanical services. Roberts is well respected in the region as a first-rate mechanic. Roberts also has extensive Mercury and Yamaha training under his belt – Certified on OMC outboards as a Master Technician, and as a Yamaha Master Technician for both 2- and 4-stroke technology, achieving Yamaha 5-Star Certification.
Long-standing Jarrett Bay service expert Brian Wade returns to the Outside Machinist crew heading up the fully equipped service van providing more efficient and responsive service to off-site customers.
