Ships aren’t made to stay in one place, and neither are we. We are happy to service your needs wherever you may be.
Without hesitation, we would recommend Captain Frost to others. We showed up in San Diego with only a short time to go before the Baja HaHa. With five of living on board, refrigeration was a priority. Despite the aged nature of our system and awkward access, Captain Frost worked through the weekend to come up with a creative solution that was ready in time for our sail south with the rest of the fleet. He took the time to teach us as he went so we were better prepared for future refrigeration issues.

I write this letter of recommendation without hesitation. I own a 2009 Azimut 105 motor yacht. After purchasing the yacht in July of 2014 I embarked on a massive refit, which involved the replacement of 2 chiller units and 22 air handlers. This was a massive HVAC refit, which I had entrusted to another local firm. Without going into detail I was forced after a number of months to release the other firm due to poor workmanship and a variety of other egregious events. The damages created by the other firm were substantial on a number of levels.
