Hooked On The Bay Boats and Outboards

Customer Testimonials

“A key in my opinion is once people experience Hooked on the Bay….They are hooked.  Sound like a slogan, but it is true.”

-Gregg, Chester County, Pennsylvania

“Thank you again for all of your help.  We took the boat out today and had a great time it ran great and handled the water beautifully. Please also thank your mom and dad and the guys in the shop, especially Roger for all his time and help explaining everything.”  

–Jim in Cecil County, Maryland

To the Hooked on the Bay staff:

I got "hooked" in 2002 and have relied on the expertise of the owners and highly trained mechanical staff to always have answers to my questions and can expect the highest level of performance when these folks work on my boat.  In the past 10 years that I have been associated with their service staff, I have never been left anywhere on the water due to any mechanical failures on my Honda engines and the excellent maintenance that has been provided over the years.  I have referred many clients to them who have had similar experiences and I trust that between the sales and the maintenance team, the happy family atmosphere, and the extended customer base, Hooked on the Bay will be around for many years to come.  It is also a fun place to visit as there are always good food treats and coffee, storytelling and silly cat antics to watch while waiting in the showroom.  As a motorboat educator, outdoor writer and angler, I use my boat a lot and rely on this family to provide the best possible marine sales and service around.  And simply put, they do!

Launching and retrieval was a snap also (thanks Roger for your lesson).  We love it.  Thank everyone at Hooked on the Bay for being so friendly and nice and helpful.

Hooked ont the Bay is a topnotch boat dealership. I spoke with Wanye
on and off for two years before finally deciding to buy a boat. Wayne went
beyond expectations and found the last remaining, no-longer-in-production,
model (SC 190) I was looking for. When it comes to service, my SC 190
will only be worked only Hooked ont the Bay technicians. Their quality
workmanship and knowledge of the Triumph and Suzuki Marine brands
are equaled by few.

Hooked on the Bay is a "no pressure" dealer. Wayne and Felicia will offer
all available discounts right up front to get you the best deal on the boat,
motor, and trailer that fits your needs and budget.

Knowing you are a family owned business, you make me feel part of your family by the way I am treated as customer.  Your staff pays attention to detail, and when there is a problem it is explained to me with all options.  I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

–Ron from New Jersey

Your all number one in my book and you have a customer for life!  See you guys in the spring.

Hooked on the Bay was a pleasure to deal with.  I recently re-powered my 19’ Legacy Sea Fox center console and put a Honda BF90 on it.  My old motor was a two stroke 115 and I assumed that was what I needed in a four stroke model to maintain the same performance.  Wayne and Felicia informed me that the new Honda’s are much more powerful than old two strokes and they talked me out of a Honda BF 115 and into a Honda BF 90.  I was apprehensive about it thinking that my boat would not have the same performance dropping to a 90 HP.  I was mistaken.  My boat is just as powerful as with the old 115 but so much smoother and of course unbelievably efficient.  I saved over $1,000.00 going from the Honda 115 to the Honda 90.

Rarely, in my experience, do you find a dealer that will talk you out of a more expensive model but Wayne, Felicia, Jon and Roger were top notch professionals and didn’t sell me something that I did not need.

The experience was great.  I would recommend “Hooked on the Bay” to anyone thinking about buying a new boat / motor.
