You can consign your boat to Lanes End Marine Service to sell for you for 10% comission. Tim will talk to prospective buyers about the boat, take it out on the water with them, and get the bust price for you. We will advertise it online, in the papers, and on Gov Wentworth Highway.

How far in advance to I need to send a Launch Card to get my boat?
If you want your boat for Memorial Day, send a launch card as soon as you recieve notice that the Launch Card is available online! Each year we have some disappointed customers who wait until two three weeks ahead to request a Saturday before Memeorial Day, only to have to wait until after Memorial Day to get their boat. For any popular holiday, we may need 6-12 weeks notice to get you on the schedule.
How can I make sure my boat is ready the day I want it?
1. Before going into storage, tell us all about ANY problems you had over the summer, even if they seem to have "resolved" themselves. We want to know about odd sounds, slow responses, difficult actions. Be sure to write those on your Storage Agreement, or even in an email to us. The more we know about the problem, the sooner we can fix it.
