SeaFox 248 Commander w/ Yamaha 300Hp
When outfitting a SeaFox for a customer, there are many options that can factory installed during the manufacturing process which is sometimes ideal. Although many boats come from the factory loaded with our hand picked options, many Sea Fox buyers desire even more customization. In the case of this beautiful 248 Commander model, despite being well optioned from the factory with Lenco trim tabs, Lofrans windlass, battery tender, power assisted steering, Garmin thru hull transducer, and more, we continued to spec the boat to the clients request by installing dual Garmin VHF systems with AIS capability, a Garmin Fantom radar dome, custom vinyl CF lettering, ACR GlobalFix EPIRB, and more.
Additionally, since the boat was destined for distant shores, we provided her owner with a full stock of OEM Yamaha maintenance and service parts including thermostats, water pumps, spark plugs, filters, anodes, and more to ensure that no matter where the boat was headed, keeping the engines purring would not be a challenge.
The Best in Navigation and Communication Electronics
These days, when it comes to chartplotters and multifunction displays, there are many great options available with amazing features. We can help you select the right model for your needs. To complement your display, most brands also make a variety of communication devices from basic VHF capability, up to AIS data transceivers, all ready to be paired with a high quality antenna. With a MFD and comm device package, you are ready to hit the water with a wealth of information and capability built into your helm station. We sell and install navigation and communication equipment from Garmin, Raymarine, Simrad, Furuno, Lowrance, ICOM, Standard Horizon, Shakespeare, Digital Antenna, and more.
Sonar, Radar, Cameras, Sensors, and Other Specialty Devices
Specialty electronics are one of our specialties. With a capable nav/comm setup already established, you can greatly expand the amount of data in your hands for decision making. Whether navigating in fog or hunting your favorite target species, with additional equipment like radar arrays, transducers, cameras, tank sensors, and more, your helm station turns into a veritable command center of information about what is happening above and below the surface. All of the nav/comm brands offer compatible options and other manufacturers of innovative products to expand your systems capabilities include FLIR, Airmar, NMEA, and ScanStrut.
Stereo Packages from Mild to Wild
Many, if not most, boaters these days are having their vessels equipped with stereo systems for entertainment. We get requests for many different scopes and sizes of systems from basic 2 speaker bluetooth systems, to large systems with multiple amps, subwoofers, tower speakers, SiriusXM compatibility, RGB lighting integrated into the speaker cones, and more. We can do it all. We feature components from the marine specific product lines of only the best manufacturers such as JL Audio, Fusion Entertainment, Memphis Audio, and Kicker.
Specialty Lighting Above and Below the Waterline
If you boat in low light or dark conditions, you know how valuable the right lighting systems can be. We frequently install courtesy lighting, deck lighting, scene lighting, search lights, underwater lights, cabin and below deck lighting, accent, navigation, handheld, government light bars, and more. White, red, blue, color selectable, color changing… it is all possible. We work exclusively with top-shelf manufacturers such as Rigid, Hella, OceanLED, Lumitec, ACR, Aqua Signal, TH Marine, and more to outfit your boat with any lighting need you may have.

Sometimes, the best solution isn’t out of a box and needs to be designed and fabricated as a one-off piece. We have the tools and team to bring your custom vision to reality.
For canvas covers, enclosures, convertible tops, etc., we contract with local marine canvas makers to get your pieces hand tailored for a perfect fit and feature set. Upholstery and cushions are made to your color, foam, and design preferences.

Equipment for Autopilot, Boat Control, Helms, Kickers, and Trim Tabs
Great ways to improve your experiences on the water are equipment options like autopilot, multiple helm station, kicker engines, bow/stern thrusters, joystick piloting, and digital or power assisted steering. All these amenities ramp up your safety factor as well as your “C” factors: capability, confidence, and comfort. Many of the great electronics brands we sell and install make very capable autopilot systems that sync with your display for a user friendly experience.
Engine manufacturers such as Yamaha, Mercury, and Honda have streamlined solutions for adding additional helm stations. Installing a kicker motor is an easy way to add both redundancy and trolling capabilities that don’t add service hours to your primary engine. Kicker autopilot steering systems by Sea Star and Panther turn your kicker into an invaluable asset on the water. We are one of only a handful of dealers nationwide that specialize in Yamaha’s ground breaking Helm Master systems, both Gen 1 and the newer EX system, to add the ultimate in boat control for fishing, docking, anchoring, and cruising. Depending on a boats mission and use-case scenario, trim tabs can be critical part of a vessels performance capabilities. We install systems by Lenco, Bennett, and ZipWake. If a bow and/or stern thruster is on your mind, we are an authorized dealer for systems from Lewmar, Vetus, and Sleipner.
Windlasses, Baitwells, Flush/Air Systems, Fresh/Raw Water Systems, Shore Power, and Other Systems
We can assist you with your windlass and anchoring needs with equipment and ground tackle by Lofrans, Maxwell, and Lewmar. Baitwells, pumps, and their plumbing are installed in house. Outboard flushing and inflatable tube stations from Reverso and Scoprega, respectively, are luxury amenities for discerning boat owners looking to make their boat maintenance much easier. On board fresh water systems are great for rinsing off after diving or water sports or for on board sinks and toilets. Raw water washdown systems make rinsing environmental elements off your vessel a breeze whether at the dock on on the water. Having a shore power battery tender installed is a great way to ensure your boat is ready to use anytime and ensure that your batteries are capable of running bilge pumps for as long as need be in inclement weather conditions when in slip.
