Winter Storage 2019-2020


Early warning - We've been receiving inquiries since the spring about winter storage for 2019-2020. We regret to say that we're likely at full capacity. Openings may emerge if customers sell their boats, but we honestly won't know until later in September. It's o.k. to inquire, but you won't hear anything different for a while. If you'd like to be on a wait list for callback, the best thing you can do is fill a Winter Storage Request:

Suzuki repowers and repairs

Suzuki repowers in progress. Your repower, repair or warranty work will be handled by Suzuki certified technicians. Contact us (; 781-925-0044).

To obtain an estimate for a new Suzuki Outboard Motor, please submit a Suzuki Outboard Motor estimate request.

Steamboat proposes seasonal marina restaurant

Tune in to for a replay of our presentation to the Board of Selectmen seeking amendment to our lease with the Town of Hull to allow us to use space to open a seasonal marina restaurant. Our presentation starts at 1:37 on the tape. Spoiler alert - the BoS chair stated at the outset that no decision would be made on the proposal at the meeting. But if you don't know anything about the Marina or the development of the pier you might find it interesting anyway.
