Repowering with a new engine can breathe new life into a boat.

Mastry Engine Center said it has opened a new Suzuki RePower Center in Florida.

Oyster City Suzuki in Apalachicola is the ninth retail facility that will specialize in repowering boats with Suzuki four-stroke outboards.

The owner of Oyster City Suzuki bought Scipio Creek Marina four months ago and worked with David Taylor, a Suzuki RePower by Mastry sales and marketing representative, to begin offering the repowering service.

“A well-maintained boat in great condition may have an outboard that has lost power over the years,” Taylor said in a statement. “Repowering is a cost-effective alternative to buying a new vessel.”

Oyster City Suzuki has factory-certified technical and parts personnel. Repowering through the new facility includes membership in Mastry’s Owner’s Edge program.
