Hear from our Happy Customers

Read comments about how we strive to exceed expectations with the best boat electrical support service for our customers.

“Zach is so honest and reliable. He had to search for over an hour to find a random part for my radar and he was successful. He also checked on some connections to make things work better. He then took some time to teach me how to use my equipment. Such a nice and thoughtful business owner. I’ll be calling him for all my radar and electrical boat stuff. My husband loves the new fish finder stuff.”

Cindy Z.

57ft Powerboat, 2001

“This is not rocket science… Hire this guy! I used Zach several times to inspect, diagnose and rectify several issues I was having on my hunter 45 DS. Zach and his team are professional, timely, and efficient. In this era of contractors that don’t call you back, overcharge, and do shotty work, Zisser Marine stands alone as a one of the few true marine repair professionals in San Diego.”

42ft Sailboat, 2012

“Had Zach out to our boat to look at an engine starting problem that the “experts”, couldn’t figure out. Zach found the problem in 20 minutes, that was stumping the other guys for several months. I highly recommend Zach for any marine electrical issues, he’s the best.”

Mark P.

49ft Powerboat, 2005

“Professional, courteous and very timely. Sure wish all other marine service providers were as professional in providing services.

Would definitely recommend Zisser Marine.”

Carolyne H.
