Boat Builder Central Has Moved!!
Since its inception, Boat Builder Central (Bateau) has been located in Vero Beach, FL. We are proud to announce that we are now located in a new 7,000 sq. foot facility located at 7485 Commercial Circle, Ft. Pierce, FL 34951.
Our new location is in a nice industrial park with close access to I-95 and the Florida Turnpike. We will continue to stock a large quantity of Quality Marine Plywood, Epoxy, Fiberglass, and other boat building supplies.
We are also excited to be able to offer boat, RV, and trailer storage in our exterior 1 acre fenced lot. Future renovations will include the addition of 2 Do-it-Yourself covered maintenance and repair areas. We look forward to the opportunity and growth of Boat Builder Central and to continue providing our customers with quality products and exceptional service! If you are in the area, please come by and say hello.
