Other marinas and storage facilities throughout Texas have similar arrangements for showing our inventory. The Palms Marina remains the best location for placing boats “in the water” for the sea trials our customers need.

Meet Randy Nichols, The Area’s #1 Boat Guru

Randy Nichols The Area's #1 Boat GuruRandy’s family introduced him to boating, and water sports at an early age. His dad’s first boat was a twenty foot Hilton wooden boat with twin 25 HP Johnsons. With his passion for water sports he started a fishing guide services on Lake Livingston, but still fished the coastal areas.

In the early eighty’s he fished the pro-circuit, and published the Lake Livingston, and Lake Conroe Texas Sportsguide Magazines. In the late eighty’s while sponsored by Skeeter Bass Boats, and Mercury Marine he joined the largest Sea Ray, and fishing boat dealer in Houston, DelHomme Marine. The early ninety’s he was promoted to General Manager of the Lake Conroe division with cruisers and yachts. His career moved forward to a local Chaparral dealer in Conroe, over sales and service. As time passed with Randy’s knowledge, and experience with sales, service, and a great customer base… it was an easy translation into the brokerage boating business as of today.

NOTE: Inventory will be shown on an appointment basis only. These boats are stored in secure and covered slips or storage units and are not available for “hull kicking” until an appointment is confirmed.
