Regular wash & detailing by Bow 2 Stern since new really paid off when it came time to sell. Thank you Wences!
-Charles Nelson
We have been using Wences for more than 10 years now and he is a core member of our “boat care team”. He has performed everything from routine cleaning to some rather challenging specialty restoration work. Always done a great job.
Wences recruits energetic young guys who take care in their work. Cleaning is done consistently from job-to-job, month-to-month because he clearly follows up on their work and holds them to a high standard. The Industry is having a terrible time recruiting labor of any type, so this is a big deal.

Wences is a pleasure to deal with. He returns calls and texts PROMPTLY – like NEVER FAILS. Might sound like a small thing but it’s just a pleasure to know you don’t have to go chasing after him (unlike a lot of people in the Boat Repair Business!). I’ve never had a billing problem but any minor questions are handled promptly and professionally by his capable front office staff.

What can I say? The guy is a GEM! This town could use a whole lot more people like him. Five Stars all the way!

Was a customer for a couple years until we sold our boat. This is definitely the company you want to go with for anything relating to how your boat looks. They were able to take our older, tired, Florida-based boat and make her shine like new again! Highly skilled, they can so a lot more than just wash and wax your boat. Shore power cords and our 20 year old tender looked great once they were done! Can’t recommend highly enough.
-Bryan Cowger
Wences and his coworkers did their work on time, with picture perfect results. I found them pleasant to be with as well, when I was on the boat.

After much searching and many excellent recommendations, we chose Bow2Stern for the installation of Whisperwall on Reflections, a 98′ Broward Motoryacht. Wences lived up to our high expectations, providing quality service and excellent craftsmanship. The job was completed on time and on bid. We cannot more highly recommend his services.”

“I had the Grand Banks board of Directors on the boat today and they thought the boat looked like new. Thanks to your crew for a marvelous job.”Wences: It was great to speak to you today as well. Thank you for your friendship and great attention to Sanctuary. Thanks to you and your crew she remains after 9 years as a beautiful boat that draws many compliments as “new”.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

“I wanted  to take a moment and thank you and your knowledgeable crew for providing us with many years of quality detailing services for our new and previously owned yachts.

One of the things I really like about your company is that you’ve never said to use that the job is too small or too large; you usually finish in the time frame that you quote and within budget as well.
The clients that I have sent your way have always been very pleased with your work. If anyone had concerns you personally meet with them or I to make sure the work was done to the client’s satisfaction.
Your crew is always friendly, they jump in and offer assistance when they notice we need a hand moving a boat, loading equipment or whatever the task may be. The level of service you provide and your attention to detail is always topnotch.”

“Wences Ramirez and his crew at Bow to Stern have been taking care of our boats for over 8 years.  Emerald Pacific Yachts uses his services exclusively for our semimonthly exterior washes of all our brokerage and new yachts.  We also call on him when we have our new Horizon Yachts arrive from Taiwan.  His crew is essential to clearing the boat of all packing materials and debris.  After commissioning, Bow to Stern also details both the interior and exterior of these yachts.  We have always appreciated the quick response, dedication to good service from Bow to Stern.”

“We have had Bow2Stern LLC provide both scheduled and specific cleaning of our 67’ MY (Matchmaker).  We have been pleased with the service they provide.  They pay attention to details and are not afraid to ask questions to be sure they are doing what we expect.   They are accessible for scheduling via email in addition to texting and phone which is very helpful.  We would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“I own more than one boat and find it hard to keep up with all of my bimonthly washes and detailing. I have hired Wences Ramirez and his crew to help me take care of my boats and have had great results. They make an effort to make sure that I am happy with the work they have preformed. This is rare to see and that they will listen to make sure that the services are meeting or exceeding your expectations. I have been in the marine industry for over 20 years and I have hired many crews, Wences’s crew shares a goal to please! It seems like the guys they are in a competition with each other to see who can make the boats shine brighter. They also do not leave a mess around the other boats and surrounding dock as I have seen with others. For years now, I am happy with the crew from Bow to Stern and have utilized their services for my clients as well. They have a high level of professionalism and I would recommend them to my clients and friends. The equipment, materials and crew are all top-notch, I love how my carpet looks when they have used the steam cleaner on it, or how my gelcoat shines when they have buffed, polished and waxed my boat. The effort that they put forth is something I have to say makes me feel good recommending them.”

“I would like thank you and your organization for the professional manner in which you handled the care of our yacht during the period it was for sale in Seattle. Most impressive was the extent to which you kept an eye of things for us and worked hard to do the best work for competitive pricing.

I would recommend Bow to Stern to any of my friends seeking a similar service. We truly felt you gave us options throughout the course of the listing and were very thorough in the manner in which you conducted the maintenance and repairs during this period.”Warm Regards,

The boat looks better than it was delivered new 12 years ago.  When I first saw it, I thought you had replaced the teak, instead of cleaning it.
Great job !
