* Peak season: December-February. Reserved for emergency repairs to maximise customers summer use. Special order parts supply can be difficult/slow around Dec/Jan.
* Recommended annual service season: April-October - highly recommended for best service and aligns nicely with any winter storage requirements you may have, and a good time to address any hull repairs or repairs where special parts need to be ordered. Most PWC owners are on annual service schedules unless you are doing excessive hours - contact us if you are unsure.
* Please let us know at time of booking if your PWC is not running correctly. We will need to ask questions in order to establich correct parts to bring with us for repair. The more information you can provide at the time of booking the better.

Ski M.D was started back in 2007 as an independant service agent, specialising in the repair of the 3 main NZ brands of jet ski - Seadoo, Yamaha & Kawasaki. Our technician, Kevin, has a wealth of experience that can help repair ski's quickly and economically.
One of our main beliefs is to do a significant amount of preventative maintenance which is required due to most of us riding in salt water (unlike the American market which is fresh water riding). This is why our standard service include the removal of the jet unit to grease areas that seize in a short amount of time.
When it comes to repairs, often experience counts for the quickest fix, and Kevin has 18 years worth of full time diagnosis skills to draw on. That can mean he has seen that problem before. And if not we can recommend exactly who you need to see!
"If you want a great job done above and beyond without agent prices look no further. I tracked these guys down eventually by recomendation and have no intention of using anyone else (including main agents). Thanks guys, you do great justice to yourselves. Keep up the great service you provide. Keith, Raglan."
"The week before Christmas Ski MD were the only shop I rang that wanted to help me with a repair on my Seadoo jetski - the other shops just didn't care about helping and wouldnt attempt to squeeze the repair in. Credit to Ski MD whom slotted it in within 2 hours of phoning, and repaired the Jetski on the spot. I live on the North Shore, and would happily travel to Papakura every time I needed servicing and help. Thanks again guys!"
"I had a problem with my SeaDoo that just never seemed to get fixed properly. It got to the point I didn't enjoy my ski any more! I made a couple of phone calls after hours to Kevin, then took the ski into him and he sorted it quickly. I'm wrapped with the service and professionalism I received. I highly recommend Ski M.D and Kevin." Scott
"After hearing the stories of people who have been charged big money for a service by big companies with "brand" agencies, and then finding out half the work wasn't actually done, I asked several people whom I know and trust "who do you use?". Kevin's name came up repeatedly, and now having had him service my ski and after talking to him at length, I can totally recommend Ski M.D. Kevin and Cathie live, sleep, breathe jetskis, and what they don't know about every model isn't worth knowing. Great, honest service!" Lincoln
"Fantastic service - as a new jetski owner it was great to get some good unbiased advice on care and where to use around the Auckland area. Managed to get the ski in quickly and was worth the journey from Glenfield to Papakura. Thanks team."
"Both Kevin and Cathie come highly recommended for service and knowledge. I'm based in Cambridge and have no hesitation in taking my ski to these professional people for service and repair. I would not take my ski any where else. Keep up the great work guys. Thanks, Graham."
"Having sucked a stone into my jet unit I called Kevin to see if he could help me out to remove it. He told me to come around and he would have a look and sort it out while I waited. On the spot, he stopped what he was doing and got my ski running again. I couldn't ask for better service. Thanks for your help and fast service Kevin. I'll be back to have my ski serviced. Cheers guys."
"Can't say enough about Cathie and Kevin, I have been taking my ski in to them for a couple of seasons now and even though I live on the other side of Auckland I would not take it anywhere else. These guys are so friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work."
"We were absolutely wrapped with our 10hr service - the extra mile Kevin went to to make sure the safety of the ski was up to scratch - he even gave the seller of the ski a good rark up for not making sure the ski was 'water worthy' on selling the item. Love it!"
"This would have to be the best set out jetski shop in NZ, excellent service, and they opened up on Sunday for me to pickup my ski. Want your jetski serviced properly.. take it to Kevin at Ski M.D." Les
"These guys are great. Give good discount for pole ski riders. Always good for parts. Cheers Ski M.D for your great service." Flan
"I just want to tell you that is has been a "breath of fresh air" to deal with you and Kevin!! I like dealing with people who not only say what they do, but they DO what they say! Thank you for the great service. I look forward to a long association with you guys."
"I purchased a new SeaDoo in January which had electrical problems. Ski M.D quickly got it sorted. It was also running rough so Kevin completely removed and lubed up the drive train and it now runs a lot quieter. Don't assume because it is new it will be ok. I would recommend you pop in with your jet ski - ESPECIALLY NEW ONES - because you never know! Warren
"I would just like to say thank you for sorting out the Slippery Tour Coat and the Jockey Wheel for me.. The level of service and professionalism has not been matched by ANY of the other retail shops that I visited in my search for the tour coat. You kept me informed at all stages of the order and had answers to all questions. Keep up the fantastic service upstairs and downstairs, as I asked Kevin about something and he was more than happy to stop what he was doing and answer. I will definitely be returning to shop and to have my ski serviced with you guys when the time arrives." Leon.
"We would like to thank Kevin from Ski M.D in Auckland for all his help and advice with the modifications on the SeaDoos. If you need good honest service backed by sound knowledge and years of experience, take your ski to Kevin for repairs or servicing. If you live outside NZ ride it there!!" Jeremy Burfoot
Kevin Geard, is no stranger to the personal watercraft scene, since the mid 1990's he has immersed himself in jetski's; originally selling Sea Doo and Polaris craft in central Auckland before opening his Sea Doo dealership which went on to get Dealer Of The Year continuously until it was sold in 2005.
Kevin started Ski M.D. (meaning ski doctor) late 2006 and in 2009 moved to a purpose built PWC workshop in Papakura with a double bay workshop, a custom fabrication/machining room and parts/accessories store on the mezzanine floor above.
During this time, we also started JetskiJunk.co.nz - the first online parts & accessories webstore in NZ. Jetski Junk was an overwhelming success and was sold on in 2015 to allow us to concentrate on Ski MD. The additional benefit of running a large parts business was aquiring knowledge on the huge range of aftermarket parts available in todays market. This has now allowed us to optimise the best blend of quality aftermarket parts and genuine parts to retain the best value service pricing.
Today Ski MD is completely mobile around Auckland, Waikato and the Coromandal. This has been extremely popular with our Auckland customers who struggled to get their ski serviced due to time and traffic issues. We have the most advanced diagnostic equipment onboard for talking to your Sea Doo, Yamaha and Kawasaki watercraft as well as essential genuine service tools for all brands, plus, with 18 years experience in the industry, Kevin knows how to use them!
