We’ve been coming to Detyens since January 1999 and we have never been let down. No matter how difficult the circumstances Detyens always comes through. That’s not something you can say about a lot of other ship repairers.

The Atlantic Vision is about to sail away from the drydock with only 18 days in the dock (as scheduled) and a very fine job has been done…
We cannot thank you enough for the professionalism of the Yard and also for every worker.

Detyens has been the best shipyard experience I ever had...


 
Detyens was fantastic.  I have sailed commercially for thirty-eight years, with many shipyards during my career.  From the very start, everyone was friendly with competent help every step of the way and got the job done.

Excellent to work with...


 
We recently conducted and Intermediate Survey on our Barge OSG-209. Detyens was able to accommodate our vessel on very short notice due to operational changes. The ship repair manager was excellent to work with and coordinated the trades in a timely and efficient manner. We additionally had some work scope expansion which was handled swiftly and efficiently. I was pleased by the quality of the work along with the full cooperation of Management and Staff.

For sure we will come back...


 
In the last 5 years we had over 15 regular vessels for special survey, dry-docking and special repair service at Detyens Shipyards. All the time Detyens Shipyards gave a full service with high quality and perfect workmanship. We never face a problem of delay, all requested jobs where done in time.
