Due to inclement weather, The Ships Chandler has rescheduled the groundbreaking ceremony of their second marine and service center, located at 17309 US Hwy 331 in Freeport, to Thursday, February 25 at 9 a.m.

Constructed by Chapman Building and Consulting and designed by Philip Spann and Associates, the new building will create ten full-time jobs in Walton County. With over 14 acres of space, the company’s new marine and service center will supply the area with fishing and pontoon boats, outboard motors, and everything in between to make sure the boater is set up for success and supported in their boating journey.

The new location will offer state-of-the-art service including a new boat dealership featuring top of the line brands, including Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder, and Cobia boats. The new center will also brokerage boat sales, engine sales for Yamaha and Mercury Outboards, engine service and warranty for Yamaha and Mercury Outboards, engine parts and accessories, boat/marine repair and maintenance services, boat/marine parts and accessories, gelcoat repair, boat detail service, and custom marine work, including electronics, boat restoration, and a refurbish shop.
