    Buying a boat is like buying shoes: you need to try it on! Our on-water location allows you to test any boat or paddle on the water (see photo at right).
    Price shouldn't determine where you buy — service and knowledge should! But to ensure that price isn't a deal-breaker, we match prices with New England retailers.
      Customers can try boats and SUPs right from our dock.
