National Marine Suppliers to open at Bahia Mar

ADVERTISEMENT

National Marine Suppliers is scheduled to open a new location at Bahia Mar in Ft. Lauderdale on Sept. 1.


The store will stock many basic and common yacht supplies such as soaps and cleaners, nuts and bolts, paint and brushes, tools, and sandpaper. And there’s a whole counter of safety equipment.


The store will have some items special to the store including items for sportfish yachts and sailboats, and a retail display for clothing and shoes.


“It’s National-plus,” said Tom Rowe, a marketing specialist with National who set up the store. “Crew don’t have to travel to get what they need, and if they’re in another marina, they can come by tender.”


The store will also cater to yacht crew who want to have fun.


“There will be lots of toys,” he said, rattling off just some: rafts, beach towels, scooters and bicycles for rent from Yachtie Rentals, skimboards and wakeboards, fishing rods and reels, even bait.


Find the new store at Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., in the Seabreeze room, where the Captains Hideout used to be during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. For those coming from outside the marina, National Marine Suppliers will validate parking tickets.
