Since the company’s inception nearly two decades ago, MarineEast has become well-known throughout the Boating Industry for
its innovative product design.
Building upon his years as a
successful boat dealer, company Founder and Chief Designer Dave
Thompson, began MarineEast with one purpose in mind – to
improve the design and functionality of common components found
on most fiberglass boats. Because of his close association with
many of the industry’s leading boat builders, combined with an
in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing process, Dave has
acquired a unique ability to identify areas of need. Those areas
are then addressed by MarineEast through a reengineering
process that results in products that last longer, look better
and improve manufacturing efficiencies – efficiencies that
translate into better value for the boating consumer.
products are molded
of the best marine grade composites. From the very beginning,
they are designed to last – as evidenced by the now famous
Over the years, boat show
regulars have become accustomed to the noise and commotion
surrounding the MarineEast booth. What started as a dare many
years ago, has become both a tradition of sorts, and a testimony
to the durability of our engineered plastics.
To demonstrate the strength of
a particular part, one of our designers offered a non-believer
the opportunity to give the piece his best shot with a hammer.
The purpose was to demonstrate the amount of real-world
punishment the product would take. The test proved to be a real
winner, and has since become a regular feature of our exhibit.
We remain extremely proud of the fact that our products have
always passed the hammer test.
The product category that MarineEast
has chosen to address has, for the most part, been
of little concern to the average boater. Although an integral
part of most fiberglass boats, many of our products are seldom
seen. However, the integrity of those unseen thru-hulls*, hose
barbs and other similar fittings has a direct bearing on your
family’s safety while onboard. At MarineEast, we’re driven
to innovate. We’re driven to develop new products while
improving upon others. It is our mission to design products that
serve to assure your continued boating pleasure.
* Prior to installing any
thru-hull fitting, we strongly recommend that you consult your
boat's builder and/or their authorized dealer nearest you.
