Today, June 13th, at our docks, representatives from the Cape Fear Power Squadron will be on hand to check over your boat for the presence and condition of safety equipment required by state and federal regulations. The certified vessel safety examiners are experienced, trained boaters that make recommendations and discusse safety issues that can help make you a safer boater. Finding an issue where a boat is not in compliance and identifying it early can help prevent a citation from a local law enforcement officer. Representatives will be on our docks at the marina from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.


VIDEO – Check out this video of the all new Grady-White 191 Coastal Explorer. We have two in-stock and ready for immediate delivery! Choose between two power options: the Yamaha four stroke 200 and the Yamaha four stroke 150SHO (super high output.)




Mark your calendars for the evening of July 18th! You’re invited to our customer appreciation event held at the marina. This year’s event will include a great dinner from Musser’s Seafood & Barbecue, bounce castles for the kids, corn hole, music, and plenty of prizes. Stay tuned to our e-mail newsletters, website, and Facebook for more details as we get closer to the event.


We’re planning our next Cape Fear Grady Club Event now! We’ve had great response in the past to our island day trips with the club, so we’re ready to go again.

Please e-mail Jordan Davis at Atlantic Marine and let him know if you can come and what your favorite local island destination is, keeping in mind that we’ll be working with a falling tide.

Are you ready to start living the Grady life?

Summers spent at Masonboro Island or Rich Inlet. Taking in a North Carolina sunrise on the way to the bite. A weekend trip to Bald Head Island or Beaufort. Tied up on Wilmington’s historic riverfront for a front row seat to the fireworks. A slow sunset cruise with your soulmate.

Can you put a price on those days?

Well if you could, that price would be less during Grady-White’s Countdown to Spring sale and Yamaha’s Reliability Starts Here event.

Now through March 31, 2015 take advantage of factory rebates up to $10,000 and five years of Yamaha warranty protection absolutely free.

Stop by our showroom today to learn more about the Grady life.



During our busiest times, we focus on serving our customers, whether that is having your boat in the water, with a bag of ice for a cocktail cruise, your brand new Grady or Chris-Craft ready just in time for the weekend jaunt, or keeping your Yamaha motors ready to run when you are. However, in the cooler months, we evaluate our facilities and equipment to see where we can improve.

This season we’ve taken on a few projects. You may recall last winter we had the steel beams and bunks of the west side of our dry storage rack replaced. This winter we’ve focused on the east side.

We’ve constructed a new rigging shop office in the front corner of our main rigging facility at 6014 Wrightsville Avenue in Wilmington. The office has been positioned to allow rigging shop managers Mike Bland and Brad Phillips to keep watch over the gated entrance, the rigging facility, and the yard, all right from their desks.

Other down time projects around the dealership include fleet maintenance on our service trailer fleet and the implementation of a new dealership management software system. This system will integrate with all departments, including sales, finance, service, storage, dock office, and even our online eBay store.

Stop by any of our facilities to see how we’re always improving.
