"We have provided emergency engine and generator repairs and even hauled and installed a set of props for a 120-foot yacht that was en route to pick up a valuable charter customer," owner Dave Gillen Sr. said in a statement.

Gillen Diesel and Marine is a full-service yacht repair, maintenance and refit facility with a headquarters and service center in Dania, and a second service center at Lauderdale Marine Center.
