Mayer Yacht Service (MYS) was established in New Orleans in 1985, and is today a major facility for local, transient and international yacht repair and service.  MYS features a sling hoist with a capacity of 75,000 pounds, and a 50’ x 100’ paint shed with a cradle and rail system for transferring boats.  The paint shed can handle any interior/exterior, full or partial paint project, including faux finishes, design and refinishing.  MYS also provides onsite shaft and propeller work, as well as structural woodwork, fiberglass and gel coat repair, marine architectural design service, and major restoration and modification capability.  The yard handles a wide range of repair and new installation service on gas, diesel, electrical and electronic systems.  Since its inception, MYS has also operated as a licensed yacht broker.

In 2011, Michael Mayer partnered with long-time yacht broker Dick Johnston to create Johnston & Mayer Oasis Yachts (JMOY), expanding yacht brokerage beyond New Orleans to encompass the entire Gulf region and South Florida, adding additional brokerage offices in Galveston/Houston, Texas and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In 2014, Mayer Yacht Service was chosen to represent VOLVO PENTA in Louisiana and Mississippi for sales and service.

Whatever your need, service or brokerage, MYS and JMOY stand ready to provide professional, timely results!
