There is so much to love, and learn, about boating. That's why we created this library of articles, videos and blog posts to help you throughout your adventures.
Money Saving Programs for New Boaters from West Marine and BoatU.S.
Whether you are looking to outfit a recently purchased boat or are preparing your existing boat for an extended cruise, our Discount Outfitting Service can help. Our staff of Outfitting Specialists can help you select the right equipment for your particular boat and cruising needs. We have access to over 150,000 items from nearly 2,000 suppliers and years of experience outfitting boats from 20-60 feet plus. BoatU.S. can find every item you need to outfit your boat with the best gear at the best price.
BoatU.S. has two different programs to help our Members save money and enjoy the experience of equipping their boats. We have one for those buying a boat new to them called the "New Boat Owner Discount Program" and another for boaters wishing to do major outfitting on a boat they currently own called "Custom Outfitting."
Discount Outfitting Program
Outfitting Package Discounts are available on qualifying purchases of $1,500 or more which can translate into additional savings of up to 20%. Our Outfitting Specialists also have a complete outfitting guide available that can help you through the outfitting process using our equipment checklists.
Once you have contacted one of our Outfitting Specialists via our toll-free Outfitting Hotline at 1-800-695-3424, you will have a personal advisor to assist you with every step of your outfitting project.
