We’d like to introduce you to Yarmouth Boat Yard/Moose Landing Marina and Freedom Boat Club of Maine.
Steve Arnold is the owner of Yarmouth Boat Yard, Moose Landing Marina, and Freedom Boat Club of Maine. Through the breadth of his businesses, he is able to help boaters get on the water in the way that best fits their lifestyle and budget. Whether it’s ownership, rentals or boat club membership, his team can help.
Yarmouth Boat Yard (YBY) is located on the Royal River with easy access to Maine’s Casco Bay. A full-service marina with fuel and 110 slips, YBY accommodates boats up to 46 feet. They cater to ocean going power boats and provide full maintenance, repair, and storage services as well.
Moose Landing Marina, (MLM) on Brandy Pond in Naples Maine, is the largest pontoon and deck boat dealer in New England. Their full-service marina has 1,000 feet of water frontage, 200+ deep water slips, a convenient launch ramp, a double-sided fuel dock, and easy access to Long and Sebago Lakes. MLM offers sales, service, storage, transport, and the largest rental fleet in the lakes region of Maine.
Freedom Boat Club of Maine is part of the nation’s oldest and largest boating club. FBC members enjoy affordable, maintenance-free boating at 225+ clubs in the U.S., Canada, and France. Steve owns three FBC locations in Maine, one at each of his marinas in Naples and Yarmouth as well as an additional club run out of the Fore Points Marina in downtown Portland. His FBC franchise earned Rookie of the Year in 2018 and Pacesetter Award for their continued rapid growth in 2019.
Steve decided to add BRIG to his dealership product line in May of 2018. “We’ve sold RIBs as tenders for years, but when we saw the BRIG product line, we knew this was a whole different ball game. We were excited to offer these high performance rigid inflatables to our customers and the response has been great.”
Sales Managers Will Monson and Jack Stewart noted that customers that have purchased BRIGs love them. They boast about the exceptional performance and the fantastic ride. “The BRIGs are great fishing platforms for shallow waters often found along the coast and around the islands of Casco Bay,” Stewart explained. “And for us as a dealer, the manufacturing support has been on point,” Monson added.
Both YBY and MLM have had great success selling the BRIG boats. In a short time they have already sold 26 of them.
And in June of 2020, Steve decided to add a BRIG 730 Navigator to his FBC fleet. He says his members love this boat. It holds up well to the chop and conditions in Portland Harbor and on Casco Bay, and is perfect for island hopping and coastal explorations.
