About Us

We at The Boat Shop would like to extend our sincere thanks to our many patrons, and introduce ourselves to other boaters we have not yet had the privilege of serving.

Our Business had its roots established in 1958 when the Bonisese Family from Bangor, PA decided to open “The Quality Marine on Lake Wallenpaupack.” Opening in 1960 as “Wallenpaupack Marina”, the marina prospered. I joined the staff in 1962 and can remember when we sold Scott-Atwater Outboards and Crosby Boats, not to mention Wooden Whirlwinds and Sea Macs. Things have certainly changed – we don’t caulk and swell wooden hulls much anymore. Our name changed, but our philosophy of customer satisfaction, quality service and unstinting attention to detail remains unaltered.

THE BOAT SHOP offers the finest products and services available. We strive to provide Lake Wallenpaupack with marina services that are both professional and congenial.

Our staff consists of experts in all areas of recreational boating. We manufacture custom boat covers, do hull and bottom repairs, are the only personal watercraft dealer on Lake Wallenpaupack, and are a factory-authorized parts and service facility for almost all engine and drive systems, including Evinrude, Indmar, Malibu, PCM, Suzuki, Volvo Penta, and Yamaha.
We are an authorized dealer for Barletta luxury pontoon boats, Cobalt luxury performance boats, Four Winns runabouts, cruisers, and deck boats, Malibu and Axis towboats, Manitou performance pontoon boats, and Yamaha Waverunners. In addition to our sales and service, we specialize in the following accessories:

Boatmate Trailers
Connelly Skis and Wake Boards
Load Rite Trailers
Phase 5 Wakesurfers
Radar Skis
Ronix Wakeboards
Phoenix Trailers
Venture Trailers

We also specialize in late model and new Rental Boats. We love boats and boating! When we’re not working, you’re likely to find some of us sailing, cruising, fishing or skiing.
