 Wendy K*****m recommends Kingfisher Marine Electrical Services.

Thanks so much for all your work today. Did a great job at sorting out our 30 year old wiring. We can sleep easy tonight knowing we are safe and sound. Very professional and gave us loads of good advice. Will definately use you again in the very near future.

Thanks Wendy, So many old unused cables, twin and earth and cable routing through unprotected bulkheads. Look forward to returning with arctic cable, new RCD, Galvanic Isolator, Sterling crossover switch, flexible conduit and P clips to tidy everything. - when you have the woodwork completed.

S****e & T***y

Answered an emergency call for my electrical problem swiftly. Diagnosed and rewired the fault quickly and efficiently. I would definitely use this service again.



Thank you for your feedback, I was more than happy to help. Not much fun having dead batteries when you live aboard.  Shows the risk potential for making poor connections that can get extremely hot under load. New cables and connectors now installed.

Not all glamour in this job. Probably the most neglected part of a boat, the shower waste pump!

Saved our bacon, water everywhere mid shower. Thanks for your help and determination to clean everything.




Your welcome Ken, just give the waste pump and catch tube a clean every few months.

Overheating 240v consumer unit

Mike, Narrowboat "Sparks"

With no heavy duty circuits available on an all-electric narrowboat because of an over-heated consumer unit, matters couldn’t have seemed much worse on the run up to Christmas. No oven or hob, no washing machine or drier and no immersion heater. A call to Kingfisher was followed by a visit to diagnose the problem and an accurate assessment of the costs for repair given, all on the same day. Two days later, everything is back to normal on a new consumer unit, all fitted, tidied and tested within a couple of hours. Brilliant work. Well recommended.

Thank You for your feedback Mike, it was a pleasure you get your boat electrics on line again, especially so close to Christmas.
