PROFILE: MAHONE MARINE

Mahone Marine Team

 

Jan 28, 2016

After a 22 year career as a yacht professional, culminating with a stint as skipper of a 140ft super yacht in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, Zack Green decided it was time to return to his roots on the shores of Nova Scotia’s beautiful Mahone Bay. With a young family Zack and his wife Jennifer realised a seagoing job was no longer viable option. Their original idea was for a kind of semi-retirement, buying and selling used boats, but what started with a cleared patch of land on the side of highway 103 near the Mahone Bay exit, has grown into a full service marine operation. Mahone Marine’s staff, including Zack’s wife Jennifer, provide customers with new and used boats sales as well as mechanical services and storage.

Mahone Marine has gone for quality in the new products it carries. The company is the exclusive Atlantic Canada dealer for Edgewater Boats and also carries well-known brands such as Robalo, Chaparral and Polar Craft boats. As a Yamaha and Mercury Mercruiser parts and service dealer Mahone Marine employs 4 service technicians with training from Yamaha, Mercury, Honda and Evinrude.  A new computer software program streamlines purchasing and inventory control.

 Mahone Marine’s 16 acre high visibility location allows plenty of room for winter storage and the display of both new and used boats. For more info check out www.mahonemarine.com

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
