Bobby, Jim, and Rob through the past few years.  Bobby always stops by when he's in town.


Bobby Soles Propeller Service was founded by famous race boat driver from the 60’s and early 70’s , Bobby Soles. During his racing years Bobby would modify his stock propellers to make them more efficient, turning higher RPM’s and generating more speed.  Because of this talent his company was formed.  Bobby recognized early on that he wasn't the only boater who was looking for more efficiency, better fuel economy, and more speed.  As word started to spread, the shop quickly grew.  Soon after Bobby added the machine shop to accommodate the fabrication of all aspects of the industry and Bobby Soles Propeller became the go-to machine shop for all marine propulsion repair and fabrication needs for all of South Florida. 

Bobby Soles Propeller has been South Florida’s leader in marine propulsion repair for almost 60 years and has expanded their business to all elements of marine parts including, but not limited to the custom fabrication of struts, rudders, shafts, couplings, bearings and much more. Bobby Soles Propeller utilizes the latest in propeller tuning technology including computerized Dynamic Balancing and propeller scanning with the Hale MRI for accurate blade measurements.  Fast, reliable service and quality repairs are what our customers have grown to expect and each receives nothing less.  We understand the costs associated with maintaining your vessel.  Getting you back in the water is as important to us as it is to you. 

In 2008, Bobby retired and is now a seasonal resident.  Jim, Allison, and Rob now operate the business as Coastal Marine Propulsion Inc., dba Bobby Soles Propeller. 

Continuing to build on Bobby's legacy has been a rewarding experience.  The safety of our employees, the quality of our work, and the service offered to our customers remains the cornerstone of our business. 

For our potential new customers, we want to thank you for the opportunity to earn your business the next time you require service on your boat.  And for our existing customers, thank you for your continued business without you none of this would be possible. We look forward to working with you!


Jim, Allison, and Rob
