The length of time for boating trips can be dependent on conditions and time. Yet many times it actually comes down to comfort or commitment.


By investing in certain items for your boat and martine supplies, you can provide additional comfort for guests and useful items to enhance the safety and longevity of your boat.


Here are 4 useful boat investment to help upgrade your boating experience for both you and your guests:

1) Backrests and Bench Seating



Every boat has a different setup when it comes to seating. Knowing your best options supports the balance between comfort, space, and cost. Smaller boats benefit from folding rear seats that can be mounted. Some boats might benefit more from adding forward seating or folding backrests to their surface mount or rocket launcher.


2) Center Console Upgrades



Space can become crucial on small boats making a centre console that includes seating a great option for bringing additional guests. Upgrading your centre console to one that includes forward seats helps to provide comfort for your guests without compromising much additional space.

3) Electronics & Radio Boxes



Above console electronic boxes provide additional speakers, electronics, or storage that is weatherproof. Selecting one of the many additional boating electronics and radio boxes upgrades the boating experience with better sound or entertainment, but more importantly additional fishing or boating instruments to maximise your boating experience.

4) Fiberglass Hardtop



When it comes to boating a hardtop provides greater protection from the elements and lasts much longer than the traditional canvas top. Protection from rain, wind, or water becomes crucial if you unexpectedly get caught in a storm. The more rigid hardtop roofs provide greater protection and safety for you and your family and can be added to any boat to provide a more comfortable and sleek look.

Comfort Leads to More Time On The Water

When it comes to time on the water, marine enthusiasts understand how a day on the water done right can provide memories that last a lifetime.

Here are 4 must-have items for true marine legends and boating enthusiasts!




Investing in a reliable ice chest made from fibreglass that is marine-grade and weather resistant is where professional boaters and fishermen start. An ice-cold beverage on a hot day can make the trip, whereas the opposite could break it.





Getting a custom motor cover or full boat cover made from canvas is crucial for protecting your boat from the elements as well as providing shade and protection for you. Ensure you check the quality, finish, durability and fit of the canvas to prevent dry rot from the sun, and if the supplier offers custom patterning, installation and repairs or zipper replacements.




Night fishing and boating or sunset boating call for proper lighting. Decide between t-tops and fluorescent or LED tube lighting, map, downlights and floodlighting. Enjoy night fishing while meeting Coast Guard requirements by getting proper lighting for your boat so you don’t have to rush back before nightfall when some of the best fishing can happen.




When boating always ensure you have enough life jackets for each guest on your boat. Perhaps consider a garage bag that is sealable for onboard, a safety hose, a swim platform, maybe a flag staff to show your heritage or a paddleboard (SUP) rack for those family outings, dates or with friends.



The best marine masters invest in the right marine supplies to ensure they get the most out of their time on the water. These are the 4 items we highly recommend to consider for your vessel at the start.

Ocean and sport fishing enthusiasts and professionals alike understand the importance of having the right fishing and boating and equipment for their fishing boats.


Whether you are a serious fisherman, operating a fishing charter, or perhaps an aspiring or weekend fishermen, here are 3 recommended must-haves for your fishing boat!




Rod holders are a great addition to bring options to have the right rod for the situation. Rod holders are added to your gunnel or t-top with come with various tackle and mounting applications. They can be added without welding using a clamp-on, bolted on, or flush-mounted.





Designed for fishing boats, Sports fishermen know the value of having a rocket launcher to hold fishing rods. Bolted onto the cockpit floor or incorporates into a bench set, rocket launchers hold multiple fishing robs to provide options for fishing different types of fish, locations, or levels of fisherman and woman.


Additional you can get rocket launchers included on a pedestal for use such as a bait tray, a table for serving or a recessed tray. Rocket Launchers are available on helm chairs or helm seating, leaning posts and rob holders.





Sports fishermen going with 80 and 130-pound tackle for deep ocean fishing opt for a permanent or removable fighting chair to land the big game such as sailfish, marlin, or Tarpon.


Consider getting a tackle locker for all your lures and tackle to ensure safety on the boat and to help organise your fishing tackle. A fish cleaning station or bait tray goes a long way, as are trolling mounts or brackets for serious fishermen and chartered fishing boats. Poling platforms can be installed above the engine to cast and catch off the back of your boat with ease.



The best fishermen invest in the right marine supplies to ensure they get the most out of their time on the water.

They have alot of products. Great quality. And very friendly and knowledgeable.
I ordered a camera pole that fits in a pole holder on a boat. I realized it had a nock out of the metal. I called Stacy and without hesitation she sent me a replacement all the way in Hawaii. I gladly drove 15 minutes out of my way to send the old pole mount back to her. Thanks for such good service 🤙🏽
