Supporting Responsible Marine Stewardship

At Boat Outfitters, we proudly partner with organizations that are dedicated to protecting valuable marine resources. The Coastal Conservation Association Network (CCA) is a national, non-profit marine organization that acts as an advocate for the sustainable health of coastal fisheries and for recreational anglers’ interests. The organization supports projects from coast to coast on local, state and national levels, ranging from funding marine-science scholarships to building artificial reefs.

The Florida Chapter of the CCA is one of 17 state chapters. Locally, the Orlando, Florida chapter has worked steadfastly to promote awareness of marine conservation topics through community involvement. For the past three years, we’ve shown our support for the CCA Orlando Chapter not only by becoming members, but also through donations and attendance at fundraising events. This year, we are excited to continue showing our support by attending their 20th Annual BBQ and Auction.

In addition, we will be donating the following awesome items to be auctioned off in an effort to raise both awareness and funds for the organization’s many noteworthy projects:

We invite you to join us at the BBQ and show your support for a great organization! For information on the event or to learn more about The Coastal Conservation Association of Florida, please visit their website at  


New Website Launch – Boat Outfitters

Boat Outfitters

We have launched a brand new website design.

After listening to the needs of our customers we have redesigned our website to make it easier to navigate and find our products in our always growing catalog. Our new website design features easier navigation, better functionality and a more streamlined product category search. As our website and product catalog continues to grow it was becoming more difficult to arrange products for our customers to easily find. We knew we had to improve our navigation and product search attributes for a more in depth search result.

The website was redesigned to offer additional search attributes such as by manufacturer, color, size and price. The new design also adds all of our categories to the top navigation menu with a more organized drop down menu. Once you select the category you want the products within that category will be displayed along with a left column of “Refined Search Results”. This left column of search options will make searching for your desired product choices much easier. Each item will also have expanded descriptions, color choices (as needed), instructions and technical information. In addition, each item has a separate tab for “Product Questions” along with a product “Review” tab. We encourage all customers to provide an honest review of each product they purchase.

Our main product categories include:

Hardware: Here you will find boat latches, boat hinges, door handles, grab bars, and misc. hardware just to name a few.

Accessories: Our accessories include boat drink holders, boat swim platforms, display mounts, boat tables and a variety of unique boating and electronic accessories.

Maintenance: Our maintenance category includes King Starboard products, marine plastics, fasteners, marine lumber and maintenance supplies

Storage: This is one of our flagship categories. Here you will find our built in storage units, specialty storage units, accessory holders, and tool holders.

Fishing: Our fishing section includes our lineup of rod holders including the all new truck rod holder. We also feature our tackle storage solutions, outriggers and leaning posts.

Boat Parts: In this category you will find our boat glove boxes, boat doors, swim platforms, and ski locker lids to name a few.

Custom Work: This is our specialty you will not find anywhere. Our easy to order custom work includes custom boat doors, custom tackle units, and custom size to order King Starboard marine plastics.

Shop by Brand: Here you search for our quality name brands such as Teak Isle, Sea Sucker, Tackle Webs, and Taco Metals to name a few.

These categories then have drop down menus for a list of sub category products. This navigation will make finding products on our main website much easier. While the site has been completely redesigned our check out process remains the same. We have such an easy check out system we did not feel the need to make any changes.

Designed with the user in mind we have insured a design that is compatible with today’s modern browsers as well as all mobile, smart phone and tablet devices. With so many search options available it was important to let customers search from all types of devices including mobile searches. SEO services have been provided by Organic Marketing Services.

The redesigned website and product catalog means customers will benefit from easier navigation, in depth search query results and richer content. Social sharing will be a breeze. You can follow Boat Outfitters on Facebook, Twitter and Google +. You can also keep up with our latest news and products by signing up to our newsletter and follow our blog with the latest RSS feed.
