American Marine was started in 1973 by Richard Wachter in East Northport, Long Island, NY. As his reputation for reliable service and high quality standards grew so did the need to expand with the increase in business. This expansion brought American Marine to Commack and the addition of his two sons, Chris and Paul as part of the operation. Years later, when he retired and moved south he encouraged Paul to follow suit with American Marine of New Bern, NC.

What started with Paul doing outboard engine repairs, and his wife, Connie, running the office has grown to the extensive operation it is today. The heart of the business remains the service and repair of all major outboard and inboard/outboard engines. American Marine is a Five Star Yamaha dealer and one of the largest Key West Boat dealers in the country.

The dealership includes a full retail store supplying all of your boating needs including electronics, trailer parts, boating supplies and water toys just to get you started. The fabrication shop builds custom stainless steel railings, T-tops and Hard-tops. American Marine is a full service dealership with the ability to repair all aspects of your boat, motor, or trailer.

Paul's high standards, attention to detail, and the reputation for quality service including the "In by Monday, Out by Friday" policy guarantee you and your family will never miss a weekend fishing and playing on the water. The family atmosphere and knowledgeable staff make doing business with American Marine a no-hassle and stress-free experience.
