Our root’s go back to 1981 when the family purchased a marina. Already being a water-oriented family, our parents probably figured it would be the best way to keep the family together while at the same time making a living. It was at that point where for us it became an obsession.
Growing up we loved doing anything and everything we could do associated with the water. Boating, fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, surfing, scuba diving, clamming, working on commercial fishing boats, refitting boats, selling boats, working at other boatyards all while also working in the family business. It was here that not only did we learn the value of hard work but also how our parents took care of their customers. Give your customers friendly, knowledgeable service and support at a competitive price and you gain a customer’s trust, respect and loyalty. In fact, many became some of our good friends.
Today, Lightship continues to carry those very same values, even as we transition into the next generation. Over the years our product line has evolved as customers have requested more products in the marine related field and even to other outdoor pursuits such as RVs. We’ve built a strategic business model that positions us to deliver our customers the products they are looking for at a competitive price in today’s marketplace.
We now carry hundreds of brands and thousands of products servicing recreational, commercial and government customers and we ship products worldwide.
We ask that you give us the opportunity to earn your business as you pursue your obsession and remember that if you don’t see what you’re looking for, call us or send an email as in addition to the thousands of products we have online we have an enormous inventory that isn’t!
Thanks in advance,
The Crew at Lightship Marine Outfitters
