Hurricane Dorian

Please monitor this page for Atlantic Marine related storm updates.

Friday, September 6, 2019 11:15am: We made it through Hurricane Dorian and at first glance, all boats and facilities appear to be unharmed. Here’s an update for each department:

  • STORM STORAGE: If we hauled your boat, please update us on the status of your dock/boat lift/marina. We will begin returning boats to the water Monday, but need to hear from you ASAP to plan. Click here to update us.
  • MARINA: The marina will reopen on Saturday, September 7 at 8:00am. Customers with boats in regular annual dry storage may resume the use of their boats as soon as the marina reopens.
  • SERVICE: Service will reopen Saturday, September 7 at 8:00am. Click here to book service.
  • SALES: The showroom will reopen on Saturday, September 7 at 9:00am. The Wilmington Boat Show has been canceled, but boat show pricing is available in the showroom, along with Grady-White manufacturer rebates! Click here to view our inventory.

Wednesday, September 4, 2019 12:00pm: We have concluded hauling boats for the storm. All locations are closed in anticipation of the arrival of Hurricane Dorian. We look forward to reopening once Hurricane Dorian has left the area and it is safe to do so.

Monday, September 2, 2019 11:20am: Our entire staff is working diligently to prepare for Hurricane Dorian and we wanted to update you:
If your boat is in dry storage with us:

  • Watch for updates.
  • Forklift service for launching boats will be suspended as of noon today, Monday, September 2. 
  • We recommend that you remove all curtains, canvas, cushions, or any other items that could blow out of your boat.  To do this, come to the marina between 8 and 5 today or tomorrow, and we will pull your boat down long enough for you to do this.  Our staff is limited, so this will be the responsibility of each boat owner. 
  • There is no warehouse space available for boats that are in dry storage, unless you were also enrolled in our PCG Winter Storage program.  If you were, check your e-mail for instructions on how to have us move your boat to the warehouse.  An additional fee does apply. 

If your boat is in the water:

  • Secure with extra lines and fenders
  • Avoid tying tightly to pilings if possible, so your boat will rise with the tide/surge
  • Remove cushions, canvas, curtains, covers, and anything that could blow out of your boat
  • Make sure your batteries are charged so that bilge pumps will run
  • Check your battery switches and make sure they are off, so non-essential equipment doesn’t drain batteries

Fuel dock, Monday, September 2 @ 11:00am

Monday, September 2, 2019 9:44am: We are hauling boats. Our entire staff was called in today to move boats. If you were in our PCG Winter Storage program, check your e-mail for instructions on what to do to have your boat hauled. Otherwise, if you would like to be placed on our waiting list to have your boat hauled, click here and complete this form. We are working down this list as diligently as possible.

Staff meeting early Monday morning ahead of hauling boats for Hurricane Dorian.

Sunday, September 1, 2019 6:00pm:  We have made the decision to begin hauling boats.  We are obligated to haul boats for customers in our PCG Winter Storage program first, as they are guaranteed first right of refusal for the service.  If your boat is in our PCG Winter Storage program for the 2018-2019 term, please check your e-mail for instructions on what to do to have us haul your boat. 

If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, please click here.  This is not a guarantee that we can haul your boat, but we will help all the customers we can.

Thank you for your continued business!
