More than 50-years ago, Tri-State Marine began as a result of a couple’s vision to build an enduring marine business to create a legacy for their family, while delivering on the needs of those who love the water. They instilled their personal integrity, established enduring relationships with the best brands, built a foundation with ever-loyal leadership and employees and delivered on their passion for high-quality service. What resulted is a widely considered to be the hallmark of leading boat dealerships in the area — with hundreds of customer testimonials and decades of awards as proof points.
Tri-State Marine today continues its tradition of what made it special through countless years — remembered mostly by the simple happiness and priceless memories created along the way. Now under its next generation of ownership, the Rhodes family takes the helm of the extraordinary legacy created by Tom & Mary Beth Magenau long ago. We do so with the same passion for our customers, yet with renewed energy to take Tri-State Marine into a new era — building on its foundation to become even greater known throughout the Chesapeake Bay Region. We recognize that the same basic formula that has driven our past success persists and will drive our future success: to always do the right thing — by our people and especially YOU, our customers.
We look forward to continuing to serve you and the entire Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland communities as your Chesapeake Bay Boating Connection. Whether you’re looking for a new boat or a pre-owned boat, marine services of any kind, parts, accessories or supplies, a boat slip or storage, bait and tackle or spot to get you into the water and fueled-up for the day, Tri-State Marine is your destination for all of your boating needs.
We are always available to you — please tell us how we can make boat ownership easier and more enjoyable.
Explore, dream, discover – happy boating!
