About Ed Watkins Marine

At Ed Watkins Marine, we offer professionalism, craftsmanship, and quality of service to our customers whether in the showroom or in the service department. We understand it plays an important role in the experience that boat owners have when they decide on their vessel purchase or taking their boats out on the water.  Ed Watkins Marine is sure to have the perfect new or used boat from our extensive inventory to fit your budget and your lifestyle. We carry off-shore fishing, luxury pontoons, family friendly deck boats, aluminum and fiberglass bass boats, UTVs and outboard motors. Our new boat lines include Sea Pro powered by Suzuki, G3 Boats including Suncatcher Pontoons built and powered by Yamaha, Stingray, and Ranger Boats, and VEXUS Boats. We also sell Intimidator UTVs, side by side for work, hunt, and play. Our new outboard motor lines include Suzuki, Mercury Marine®, Yamaha, and Evinrude.

Our knowledgeable and professional service technicians will have you back out on the lake as quickly as possible.  With over 65 years of combined experience, we have the best techs on the lake to service your boat and motor, as well as any boat maintenance or mechanical needs and/or upgrades.  Our team of certified technicians loves nothing more than seeing satisfied customers enjoying their investments. 

Ed has a history of being competitive and the mentality of a winner with his background playing NCAA Football at East Carolina University and 24 years in the NASCAR industry with several championship teams. In 2017, he decided it was time to take on a new challenge and realize his dream of becoming a business owner. Ed and his wife, Vonda, purchased the existing boat dealership with 30 previous years of exceptional service and sales.  With his passion for boating, owning a boat dealership made perfect sense. The Ed Watkins Marine family knows that professionalism, craftsmanship, and quality of service in the showroom and in the shop play an important role in the experience that boat owners have when they take their boats out on the water

Ed Watkins Marine would be honored to do business with you and develop a lifetime experience. When you are ready, we are here for you!
