Welcome to The Boat Center. We are Connecticut Shoreline’s premier boat dealer. We are conveniently located on Route 1 in Madison just north of Hammonasset State Park. We represent a number of boat manufacturers including Striper and Bayliner. These boats offer a wide range of cruising, water sports, fishing or just spending a relaxing day out on the water.


The Boat Center enjoys a 44-year history of boat sales and service on the Connecticut shoreline.  Occupying 18 acres on both sides of the Hammonasset River we have plenty of room for storage and slips with easy access to Long Island Sound.


Stop by and check out our large inventory of new and pre-owned boats. Our sales staff is ready to assist you with your selection.  You may prefer during the summer months, just to rent one of our kayaks and float the day away.



The Boat Center is pleased to announce that we have been selected as the newest Striper Boats dealer in Connecticut. Striper Boats offer a complete range of fishboats from coastal center consoles to substantial offshore walkarounds powered by Four Stroke Yahamas.

New 2016 Bayliner and Striper boats on order and in stock.
