Hugues Marine

Hughes Marine is the highly recommended service that has made St. Barth become a technical stop of choice for some yachts, who are choosing to stop there specifically for his expertise! Besides his engineering expertise, Hughes also has great knowledge of all the electrical related problems. As he says, many problems come from electrical deficiency, and he deals with those issues on a regular basis (see ‘Mech.Engineering’ section for further info).
