Last Remaining 2022 Bennington Pontoon Packages Must Go By Friday, March 31st


Last season Hamlin's Marine waited forever for the lost load of 2022 model Bennington pontoon boats.  Simply put, the supply chain crisis was especially hard on our Bennington line.

Why?  Because nothing on a Bennington is average.  Every single component of a Bennington is upgraded including the lighting packages, the audio packages, & the exclusive Simtex upholstery that is soft & cool to the touch.

2022 was the year to order an average boat, because they were easier to assemble.  

These six Bennington models arrived too late for season, so Hamlin's was offered a special program to move them out at heavy discounts.

 Do not miss out on these six deals:

2022 Bennington 22LSB Powered By a Yamaha VF115 SHO

Was $83,771     Less $20,708    Now $63,063

Bangor Boat Show Returns to the Cross Center This Weekend


It has been so long since Bangor held a boat show that my daughter is now a teenager!  

Way back in 2019, Hamlin's Marine blew the doors off the Cross Center and helped put 40 new families on the water that summer.  Our team had to go to the Way Back Machine (Youtube) to remember how to put on a boat show.  It's a really simple set up as you can see...

Hamlin's Marine can't wait to see you this weekend at the Boat Show.  This year there is plenty of inventory, outstanding financing, and big consumer rebates!  

 This is your opportunity to find the boat of your dreams from brands like Bennington, Godfrey, Hurricane, Stingray, Mastercraft, Weldcraft, & Alumacraft.

Eastern Maine Sportsmen's Show Returns After 3 Years


Weldcraft 240 Ocean King

Yesterday, Hamlin's Marine moved into the Eastern Maine Sportsmen's Show at the Field House on the University of Maine Campus in Orono, Maine.  Check out our team using every inch of the 12' overhead door:

Three years ago, over one hundred vendors had the doors shut in our faces when the world went into lockdown.  So, this show is going to be something very special.  For 82 years, this show has served as a rite of spring.  Now in 2023, I expect this particular event to be the best in the history of the show!

For me, the spring boat show season has been a mix of excitement, anxiety, and a straight up scavenger hunt to find all the equipment, personnel, and grit to pull off boat shows again.  March show season typically yields up to 100 boat sales for Hamlin's Marine.  This is not a sport for the faint of heart.  

The UMaine Field House will serve as our proving grounds for 2023, and we are ready for our customers, friends, & fishermen.  

This weekend will be the best time to pick up a deal on a fishing boat from Hamlin's Marine.  We are well stocked with used packages and holdover units that are priced thousands below 2023 prices.  

Unlike the last couple of years, buyers can get what they want now!  Get there early to take advantage of the very best deals on fishing packages from Alumacraft, G3, Weldcraft, Bennington & Godfrey.  These deals are the best of the best and will not last the weekend:

All of us at Hamlin's Marine look forward to getting you on the water in 2023!
