Default Yamaha hpdi mechanic in stuart/port st lucie

Looking at a boat in that area with 250 hpdis... looking for recommendations on someone up that way who can give them a once over and service before I run it home.

Thank you

Seems to me there is a HUGE difference between you backing into him and he running into the side of your boat. Which was it?

No clue what you're talking about... but if you've got a suggestion on a guy in the Port St Lucie area who knows hpdi's I'm all ears.

Doug at Manatee Marina in the pocket worked on mine for 13 years. Steve at Sailfish in the pocket is another highly regarded Yamaha guy, everyone calls him Yamaha Steve. I don’t think you can go wrong with either.

OOPS! Sorry I was replying to another thread. No idea how it got here. I do know a good HPDI mechanic in Palm Beach area though.

I used to use Steve . He's a certified Yamaha master mechanic - used to be 1 of 25 in FL back in the day but there's probably a bunch now . I just don't live in the area any longer .

Ocean Outboards in Boynton Beach. Rob is the owner and I understand he used to be the service manager for Tuppens before opening. His main mechanic is a definite expert on HPDI's and they are authorized Yamaha service dealers.

Really appreciate the recommendations! Now we also have someone local who can work on them if the deal goes through thanks to this thread. Tried Steve, he very politely said don't walk, but run from those big block HPDI's... he's not a fan. However I saw on the forum some mention of Marine Customs Unlimited, guys who did that show Project Dreamboat, they have a guy there who is very familiar with big block HPDI's, just did 300HP HPDI inspection and refresh, seeing if he can make it out to the boat to give them a once over.

All this great info about who to call but no one is putting up contact info or how to get ahold of them haha I’m in the same boat as the OP here... was looking for an HPDI tech. I tried Manatee Marina but Doug is out of the shop until mid next week. Jonathan didn’t pick up, but left a message. Anyone got a number for Steve?
