Meet Marine Propulsion

Marine Propulsion was started in 1993 by Anthony and Susie Black. They relocated to the Charleston area from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Anthony’s father, Colin, was an engineer for Cummins Marine and lived in the area.  Initially the business was strictly a mobile diesel mechanic business that operated out of the garage of their home.  After a couple of years and an increase in business and employees, the business found a home at Adams Creek Marine on Wadmalaw Island.  In 2000 Anthony and Susie were able to purchase the boatyard.  Since 2000 they have run a successful boatyard and  mobile marine business.  Keeping it family run, their son Josh has recently joined the crew and participates in the daily running of the business.

Marine Propulsion are top notch! We had problems with our Northern Lights generator and they did a terrific repair ON TIME and ON BUDGET. Its rare to find shops with smart people and a strong work ethic but we found both here. Nice deepwater approach to their shop very close to the Atlantic. Super friendly staff, safe overnight storage and very experienced. They also knocked out a little glass work on the boat that matched perfectly. Very, very happy with their work and the view!

Anthony is a great business owner, takes good care of his customers. The employees all do good work too. Office staff is great. It's a great team, they will take good care of your boat. I work with them as a subcontractor and would definitely recommend them.

These guys are serious and professional at what they do, and they do a lot. Had bottom painted, new cutlass bearing installed (required rudder and shaft removal to get the old one out), even waxed from toe rail down. At the end, they washed my topsides, before releasing the boat to me. That's a special touch, that I really appreciated, and was charged for, but I didn't have to do it. Thanks Anthony
