Jim Bailey, Morehead City
Owner of Anchorage Marina, Coral Bay Marina, Spooners Creek Marina and Olde Town Yacht Club

“For many years I have used Deaton's Yacht Service to maintain my airplanes and collector automobiles. When I want an absolutely perfect job done to the highest level, I have always used Jeff and his crew. I would not think of entrusting my valuable airplanes or cars to anyone else. Airplanes are specialized equipment requiring knowledge of the underlying systems as well as the basics of cleaning and waxing. They are easily damaged by less professional cleaning crews. I can count on them doing a first class job, on time and on budget.” ~Jim Bailey

Ryan Segrave, Beaufort
Owner of Segrave Aviation, Inc.

“As both a client and partner of Deaton’s Yacht Service for the past 8 years, Segrave Aviation, Inc. has worked closely with Jeff Deaton on many projects and can highly recommend his company for your detailing needs. I can confidently say that you will not find another detailer who takes as much personal pride in each detailing job. While assisting Jeff in restoring his own custom classic 1954 Beechcraft Bonanza aircraft, Segrave was able to watch Jeff bring home his first Grand Championship at the Sun ‘N Fun airshow. Jeff has always been very easy to work with and his personal attention to detail extends not only to his own aircraft, but consistently to each detailing job he has performed over the years.” ~Ryan Segrave
