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 are a proud Bayliner Dealer and offer boats for a wide range of cruising, water sports, fishing or just spending a relaxing day out on the water.


The Boat Center enjoys a 45-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.



Yes, winter is finally over and Spring Commissioning is just around the corner. Contact our Service Dept today to schedule.

The Boat Center is the place to get your boat ready for a great boating season.
