Beaufort Boat House was established in 1996 by the previous owner. The winters in New England over the last several years have been long, cold and heavy with snow. Craig and Dawn Freeman decided enough was enough and wanted to change their life style. Craig grew up spending his summers off the shores of Cape Cod and the Islands fishing and enjoying the ocean. The most logical way to continue that summer vacation type life style that they dreamed of was to move to the Low Country of South Carolina. When the opportunity arose to purchase the Beaufort Boat House, Craig and Dawn jumped at the opportunity, buying the business and the real estate.
With the assistance of Leo Story at The First National Bank of Nassau County and the Small Business Assistance Corporation the Freeman’s were able to put together an SBA 504 loan request to purchase the real estate that the boat dealership was housed in. The company provides the sales and service of consumer fishing boats. Their two main boat lines are Pursuit and Parker. They also provide the Angler Model. They have an exclusive agreement with Pursuit to service the market from Charleston, S.C. to Savannah, Ga.
They have over fifteen (15) years of experience in sales and marketing. Dawn is overseeing the office manager duties, while Craig focuses on sales and customer relations. This young and energetic couple has established a goal of being one of the premiere boat dealerships from here to Charleston Harbor, and in the short time they have been operating the company they are not disappointing anyone.
