In 1968 Portland Marine opened its doors to the boating community in Portland, Texas and the surrounding area.
In October 1980, Richard Foley took the helm as owner and general manager. Having worked for several boat dealerships over the years as service manager, Richard stepped into ownership with a passion for the boating business. He knew that in order to succeed, he first needed to offer his customers the best products and services available. And today that same idea of "taking care of the customer" is practiced in every department. Many of those first customers are still customers today.
The boating industry has seen many changes since 1980 and Portland Marine has made every effort to keep up with the changes and offer the highest quality products available. We are very proud to be a full line EVINRUDE dealer, offering boats packaged with Evinrude E-Tec . We can also repower your existing boat.
Our boat lines Action Craft Flatsmater, Coastal Bay, Shoalwater, Mako, Polar, and Weld-Craft Aluminum allow us to "custom fit" the right boat for you. We will rig your new boat with everything you want : electronics, power-poles, casting decks, poling platforms, troll motors, T-Tops, etc, let us know! And yes - Financing is available
for your boat purchase. .
Service after the sale is a top priority. Our service department works hard to keep our customers on the water.
Manuel Alvarado has headed up that department for over 15 years, earning the reputation of one of the best "techs" in our area.
We carry a large inventory of parts and accessories.
Drop by and see for yourself - We think you will enjoy doing business with us.
