We’ve worked diligently over the years to develop great relations with our customers and we’re proud to have so many repeat customers and referrals.

Much of our business has always come from word-of-mouth, and we’re honored to be so highly regarded by folks in the community.

I engaged Carolina Outboard to do a pre-purchase inspection and service on a 22 bay boat. Chris, Vicky and Rob were very professional, friendly and responsive throughout the process. Chris even gave more than two hours of his time pro bono (as well as access to his private boat ramp) to wet test the boat with me, running the boat through the RPM range to ensure proper prop and performance, and reviewed the electronics and their function, including power pole and hydraulic jack plate. Whether buying new from Carolina Outboard, using them to fully evaluate the condition of a used boat before buying, or for maintenance and servicing, this family team delivers top notch quality service. Thank you Chris, Vicky and Rob! Steve

I make my living on the water every day, 200 days a year. Chris and the guys at Carolina Outboard keep my boat and motor running smooth, no matter what! I couldn't make my living without them! Jon H, Pages Creek, NC
Had a real problem with my old 200 HPDI ..when it was tuned and adjusted by the book, the idle was way off the mark .... Chris and his mechanic spent two persistent and patient hours on the water and found a solution that would work .... As a result, I got 3 more, strong, running years on a my 2001 Yamaha....Made the big decision to repower after the new INLINE 4 Yamahas emerged last year.........The new 4 stroke is 8 pounds lighter than my old 2 stroke and is a very strong running and sharp looking outboard .... very economical for a 200.... Just wanted to thank Chris for the fine install and checking out the boat so thoroughly....you have the very best crew there, highlighted with Jimbo's Fine Craftmanship and Dale's Outboard Expertise ...Best of luck with the new shop... Thanks.....David E, Hampstead, NC
Outstanding customer service through Vickie with office business and Chris with sales and service. I traveled 3.5 hours from High Rock Lake to purchase my used Boston Whaler Dauntless and new Road King trailer from Carolina Outboard. Chris made sure all my questions were answered providing many useful suggestions regarding maintenance and servicing. It was a business transaction for sure, but there was a distinct feeling of trust and friendship developed which is unique today. Great folks to provide your boating pleasure and excellent service! - Warren M
I Just put the boat back in, the engine ran great and the lower unit looks beautiful. Boating and fishing are by far our favorite things to do together as a family. For us, Carolina Outboard is doing much more than providing outstanding service at fair prices. You are helping to keep our favorite family activity financially practical. For that, we can’t thank you enough. Please also thank Dale; you guys make a great team and are well worth the drive to Hampstead. Kind Regards - Dave
