“I Now Have The Best Dock On The Bay”

After having to get rid of my other dock builder I asked around town for some recommendations. I kept getting the same answer. Call Island Marine Contractors, As a retired Military pilot I am very detail oriented. I called Mike Thaler and had him come to my home so I could meet with him and get his take on the mess the previous contractor had left me with. Mike was very professional and answered all of my questions. Mike and his crew arrived a few days later and proceeded to correct all of the issues with my dock. All I can say is "WOW" These guys really know their business. The dock was completed in less time than was estimated and the changes they made to the structure helped to make the dock rock solid. Thanks Mike and crew I now have the best dock on the bay.

“Everything we wanted and more.”

Island Marine did a great job of building our new dock and boat lift. The dock is everything we wanted and more. We would highly recommend using them for your next dock project.

“I just want to say a big THANK YOU!”

Thank you to ALL of you at Island Marine Contractors. Working with Mike and the staff has been a pleasure. Our pier at Plantation by the Sea condos turned out even better than expected. I get compliments daily. I truly do not know how the project could have gone any smoother – especially as it was post-Irma.

 I too work in the construction industry and say with experience that the whole process from original quote to actual installation was perfect. Mike and his crew set the bar for the industry. As I am also on our Board of Directors for the condo, I was very involved in the project. Please feel free to use me as a reference for your company.

“Our favorite place in the world is back thanks to Island Marine”  

Mike and his team of professionals came to our rescue after Irma wiped out our long dock.  Starting from the permitting process up until the final touches were complete Island Marine exemplified best in class customer service and quality of workmanship.  They worked with a sense of urgency while taking time every day to insure that we were more than satisfied. The price we paid was very competitive and fair and we couldn’t be more happy with our choice to hire local.  We can now be found on any given day EOD (End of Dock) thanks to Island Marine.

“I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

"Mike and all the staff at Island Marine Contractors have been great to work with.  Mike responded quickly to my request for a quote to rebuild my dock after Hurricane Irma.  His price was reasonable and they went right to work on the permitting process.  Dock piling replacement and dock construction was done in a professional manner with quality workmanship.  Mike and his staff were always responsive to my questions and requests and are very willing to stand behind their work.  I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“We couldn’t be happier”

I highly recommend Mike Thaler for any dock projects. Mike removed our old Irma damaged dock and built a new dock that is stronger and higher off the water to help reduce storm damage in the future. Mike also uses high quality building materials to last a long time.

We've received compliments from neighbors and friends about our new Thaler built dock.  We couldn't be happier.

 I would highly recommend Mike and his crew”

 I purchased a home in Islamorada in June, 2018.  I needed work done with an existing lift, as well as purchased and installed a new one.  Mike Thaler of Boatlifts of South Florida was extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process.  He walked me through from beginning to end and got the projects done as per the estimated timeframe  I would highly recommend Mike and his crew for all future boatlift and seawall projects.

"Boatlifts of South Florida did a great job on my new 4 post Super Lift and aluminum fender posts for my dock.  Vicky and Mike were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.  They were able to work me in to their schedule and provide recommendations on a reliable electrician to setup the lift."
