Marine Learning Center

All the boating resources you need in one place

At Yamaha Marine Center of Jacksonville, we understand that making a purchasing decision on a boat is a big commitment

Our goal is to change the way you approach looking for a boat by providing you with ample boater’s resources to refer to. We are not here to “pressure” you into deciding on a boat that you may not want or that doesn’t fit your needs. Our staff is here for you, and they are dedicated to making the research portion of your search as easy as possible. Use our years of experience to help you find the right boat to fit your needs.

We will continue to post the most asked questions we get from our clients when they are researching their purchase. This site is being designed to provide boaters a great resource, not only our clients, but for any brand of boat you may be interested in. Our ultimate goal is to help educate as many potential and current boaters as possible.

If you don’t see a question that you want answered, email me, I will get back to you. If I don’t know the answer I will commit to finding the answer for you and get back to you ASAP. We will eventually post the most asked questions to our site.

Thank you for visiting our site, I hope you find it useful.

P.S. If you don’t have anything to do for the next hour or so, check out the Boat Buyers Guide, Jacksonville Florida Edition below.
