28 foot Tidewater
I went from a 42 foot boat to a 28 foot Tidewater and cannot believe the solid ride, stability, handling, and the great bow flare. The fit and finish is unmatched. John S

A Great Team
Paul and his crew at Coastal Boat Sales are a great team I’ve had multiple experiences with Paul and to be quite honest with you he’s an all-around great guy. When it comes to warranted work, the purchase of my new boat it has never gone anything but smooth.  In this day and age it’s tough to find service like this thank you gentlemen for being great at what you will do.

To Paul and all at Coastal Boat Sales.
I would like to thank all of you for your help, expertise and service over our ten year relationship. We are now on our third new boat purchase with Coastal (two Tidewaters and Crest) and Roe and myself would highly recommend you, your products and services as one of the best boat dealers  we have had the pleasure of dealing with over  our fifty plus years of boating.
Sincerely, Lee and Roe E.

A happy boater and customer.
“After 10 years of utilizing a larger Marina for the spring and winter servicing needs of my 25 foot Wellcraft, a friend, who recently purchased a new boat from Coastal Boat Sales, recommended I give them a look. In the past, my boat never got the attention it deserved and I lived foolishly with this frustration for years. While my boat was never the biggest or most expensive around, it is mine and I am a perfectionist when it comes to its maintenance and care.
In any event, I opted to start using Coastal a few years ago for my service work…..Long story short,,,,,I could not be happier. When you call, they call you back. When they promise a delivery date, it is met. When you have a problem and need help ,,,,they are there for you. I could not be more pleased that I made the decision to switch to Coastal Boat Sales and highly recommend them to any one in search of outstanding, high touch Marine service and sales. John D

Tidewater 252 CC
I am absolutely in love with my Tidewater 252 CC and cannot speak highly enough about Paul and his staff. What a pleasure it’s been dealing with the entire staff at Coastal- every step of the way they have been more like friends then business associates. Russell P


Tidewater 23 CC
This year will be my third season with my 23′ tidewater.  I absolutely love my boat! Being a single woman over 50, it is very important for me to have a company like Coastal Boat Sales!  They make certain my boat is property serviced, answer technical (and non-technical) questions I may have in detail, and even pick up and deliver the boat to me every spring/fall!  The only thing I need to do myself is turn the key!!  They are an incredible company!  I recommend them to all my friends!

Tidewater 21 & 25 CC
I have purchased two boats (21ft and 25 ft) in the past two years. Paul worked with me to get the best price. He made suggestions when I was going to spend too much on certain accessories and always has looked out for my best interests. When I had issues with something that needed to be repaired he was there sometimes the same day and he wasn’t satisfied until I was. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a boat. I’m looking forward to the 32 ft next year. I also have to compliment his staff. They are there to help and get it right the first time. Rich H.


“I have been dealing with Coastal Boat sales for years. Staff is courteous, shop mechanics, Dale and Kyle, are very knowledgeable about anything to do with boats, and owner Paul really treats his customers like his own family. I would not think of ever going somewhere else”. Ted S.
