25 Year Anniversary

2009 is US Boatworks' 25 year anniversary.  Back in 1984, Marty started
US Boatworks from his garage.  His idea was to improve on the service boat
dealers offer. 

First, boat dealers do not offer the option for using used parts in their
  US Boatworks specializes in
used, salvage boat parts
for your marine needs.  The parts are inspected to insure they are in good
shape.  They also always come from fresh water engines, so there is no
worry about salt water corrosion.  We sell and ship these parts all over
the country so feel free to ask about purchasing used parts for your boat motor.

Secondly, boat dealers have a minimal inventory of boat parts on hand
What this means for you is two fold.  One, you wait for the dealer to order
your parts to fix your motor which can add days or even weeks to your repair
turn around.  And two, manufacturers stop making parts for their engines
after a certain number of years.  If that is the case, you are out of luck
getting that part from your dealer.  US Boatworks has over

25,000 different boat engine parts in stock

that means faster turn around time on your repair.  It also means you can
ask about almost any Evinrude, Johnson, Mercury, Mercruiser, Volvo-Penta marine
part and odds are that we have it in stock for you.

Third, boat dealers had huge overhead so offering

Kansas City area discount boat repair
is just not possible
.  US Boatworks is able to offer
labor rates discounted from what most area boat dealers offer because our
overhead is low.

Marty's dream to be a major retailer of boat parts and service has become
reality.  Hard to imagine 25 years ago what a great concept he had. 
We miss you Marty!

Contact Mike or Tim at US Boatworks at 913-342-0011 if you have further questions
about parts or service on your outboard or stern drive marine engine.  You can also

Happy boating.
