Mike and Marissa Green established Finish Line Marine in 1996. Though the business has grown, 18 years later, it is still the same place, run by the same people.

Fishermen seeking a strong and dependable aluminum boat can special order an Alweld Boat, customized to meet their specifications. Finish Line Marine is factory authorized for sales and service with Yamaha, Mercury, Suzuki, Nissan, Tohatsu and Mercruiser Engines. 

They also work closely with Gulf Coast Marine to offer a wide selection of fiberglass boats including Sea Hunt, Everglades, Bonefish, Shallow Stalker, and Twin Vee.

If you’re interested in a new GPS, Power Pole or other boating accessory, Finish Line can order and install it for you. 

On the service end, Finish Line Marine offers many services to help maintain your boat, engine and trailer. 

Finish Line Marine offers full detailing on boats. To keep your boat looking its best, Finish Line Marine can fully clean and detail it inside and out. If you have incurred any damages to the fiberglass or gelcoat on your boat, they can repair it to a like-new condition.

When your engine needs routine maintenance, trained service technicians will help you get you back on the water as quickly as possible. If your engine has a less routine problem, one of Finish Line’s technicians will diagnose and repair the issue. Customers are called with estimates before the work begins to ensure there aren’t any surprises on the final invoice.

The condition of your propeller is vital to your engine reaching peak performance. If your blades are bent, cracked or chipped or if your hub is damaged, you’re not getting the most out of your propeller. Among Finish Line’s services is a completely in-house propeller repair shop. Bring you prop by and Finish Line can give you an estimate and complete your repairs quickly.

They also offer trailer maintenance, which is vital in order to safely transport your boat. Finish Line also offers trailer repairs — they are equipped to do everything from replacing worn or damaged hubs and springs to building you a new replacement axle. They also offer trailer storage for a low monthly fee. 

If you are a Do-It-Yourselfer, visit our website where you can view your engine’s breakdown and even order your parts to be shipped to you. We also stock a wide assortment of parts and accessories.

Finish Line Marine encourages safe boating. Please wear your life jacket.
