Inland waterways

We offer a wide range of services for the inland waterways including but not limited to Boat Safety Scheme examinations, engine services and repairs, electrical repair, breakdown callouts, custom fabrication and general boat repairs

BSS Examinations

At Drake Marine Engineering we recognise not every boat owner is an expert, and as such we adopt an interactive approach to helping your boat meet the standards set by the Boat Safety Scheme.  We encourage you to ask questions and seek advice from us before the exam date, in order to best prepare your boat for the exam itself. 

The price is set at £250 for an exam and £100 for a retest, no charge for travel. For that you get a thorough exam and continued support for any compliance issues that may arrive or any technical questions you may have as we are engineers first and foremost.
