We stopped by Longshore boats on a whim one Saturday morning. We got lucky and got Hector as our sales person. Hector has been incredibly helpful from searching for the perfect boat for our family to the purchasing a boat, and has continued to provide helpful information as a recent boat owner. He is honest, knowledgeable about boats and boating in general in this area. He made this experience seamless and we’re very grateful. We would recommend Hector and Longboats.

Hector Chavarri provided amazing service when I bought a used boat from Longshore. Very knowledgeable and went above and beyond with everything he did. Highly recommended!

May 24, 2024

From selection to delivery, effortless and enjoyable. All the people at Longshore really go the extra mile. I just took my maiden voyage on my new 23cc and it was a pleasure. Steven , the general manager, even arranged for a captain to accompany me on my first trim. Dan took me thru the boat and made sure I was comfortable with the operation. Thanks guys, see you all on the water.

Thomas Drayton and Longshore Boats are an A+ crew. They worked greatly with us on our new Chaparral 23 SSI for us to boat with in Charleston. They made the sale very easy, and followed through on their word. Thanks!

I just took delivery of my fourth boat from Longshore Boats on Clements Ferry in Berkeley County. This one was a 246 Cayman Robalo. The Team at Longshore has demonstrated to me a willingness to work through logistics, customize the boat to your needs and make the whole experience enjoyable. My sales advisor was Hector Chavarria who found me the right boat and arranged with his sales partner Thomas Drayton to find the right buyer for my existing boat to complete the transaction. It was a win win for all of us. Longshore handled all of the paper work on both boats and provided an experienced captain to deliver the new boat with a 4 hour session on the water. It was a team effort including Stephen Parulis, the GM who helped negotiate the two party transaction. If you are in the market for a new or used boat, I strongly recommend visiting Hector at Longshore. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge in boating and fishing. As far as service, Longshore has serviced all of my boats over the years and has allowed me uninterrupted use of my boats on the water. A special thank you to Steven Ellliot for prepping the new Cayman and making it sea worthy.

Matt Sloan
May 13, 2024

Absolutely fantastic. I was having a terrible experience with a competing firm who did not seem to want my business. I walked into Longshore and met with Hector. No appointment. Just wandered in. Hector was super responsive. He talked me out of a bad decision and within an hour solved my problem of getting rid of my existing boat and sold me a new one. I did not expect to buy a boat that day but thanks to Hector everything fell beautifully into place. He has since gone out of his way to help me with a few customer service matters. He is a pleasure to work. I love Longshore.

Our family just purchased a previously owned 2021 Robalo through Longshore Boats. We got a wonderful deal and the buying process was enjoyable and stress free. Everyone on staff was great. Our Sales Rep Tom Drayton was attentive and responsive throughout the process. His ability to answer our questions and address our requests made it all possible. The boat was delivered today and we couldn’t be more pleased. We strongly recommend you visit Longshore if you are considering purchasing a new or used boat.

Tony Scruggs
May 6, 2024

Wow! What a fantastic company to work with. First class in every aspect. The general manager Stephen Parulis was a pleasure to work with. No pressure and very honest in every respect. I purchased a 270 Rabalo and this boat is just perfect for the Charleston lifestyle. No one could match the deal, not even in a Nationwide search.

Edward Conklin
May 6, 2024

We have been considering a new boat for almost six years. During this time frame we have talked with most the other dealers in the area, attended all the boat shows and did all the research. One thing remained consistent during this time frame, the professionalism of Longshore Boats experts. Our experience was amazing, no pressure, no overselling, always returning phone calls and texts. Following up as needed. I asked a lot of question and they never made me feel as I was overstaying our welcome. Once we decided to move forward with the purchase and since taking possession of our boat, our experience continues been exceptional. They go over and above our expectations. And they still answer the calls and questions at all times of day. When service is needed, they make it seamless. My recommendation if you are looking at a new boat, make sure you stop at Longshore boats.

Longshore Boats is a first class operation from sales to service. If you are in the market for a Chaparral, Robalo or Edgewater, ask for Hector Chavarria. He has been there a while and he took great care of me with a Chaparral! Thanks Hector!.

We just bought our first boat from Longshore and Hector was our salesman throughout the process. I wrote a request for additional information on the boat I was interested in on a Saturday and didn’t expect a response until Monday. However, within minutes, Hector reached out to me and scheduled a time for me to come in that day. He had the boat ready within 45 minutes and never pressured us not anything other than what we wanted. He made the experience feel comfortable and welcomed my two young children who accompanied us to the dealership. Hector coordinated with the financing companies for us and also helped get our insurance process rolling. After purchasing the boat, he also set up a personalized lesson with an experienced captain. Hector was wonderful and we highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a boat without feeling pressured into anything other than what you want.

I am a very happy costumer as I had the best possible experience buying my first Robalo boat at Longshore Boats. Hector Chavarria and the team at Longshore Boats answered all my many questions and guided me through the whole process. Hector has all the important “As”: Availability, Affability, and Ability. He connected me with captains, local fishermen, and others to make my boating experience more enjoyable and safe!

What a great experience we had purchasing a Robalo from Longshore Boats. Our sales rep, Hector Chavarria, helped us every step of the way answering all of our questions. Since we were coming from NY, he effectively coordinated our time to see and test drive the Robalo. Very accommodating and kept everything fast and friendly! Thank you Hector!

December 13, 2023

Hector is the best! I’ve bought and sold many boats over the years and have never had anyone close to the level of care and attention Hector provided! He acted as my eyes as I had a lot of work done while I was in back home in Maryland. I knew his eye was as good as my eye and probably more critical! A true pleasure dealing with Hector, who I now consider a friend! They just don’t come any better! 10 Stars!! Thanks again for all your attention to the details! You’re a one off!! 👍🏻👍🏻

Excellent experience from start to finish with Longshore Boats and my salesman Gian. After searching for a used boat for several months, I contacted Longshore boats based upon their advertisement of a used SeaFox Commander 246. My experience with Gian was low pressure, informative, transparent, consistent, and trustworthy. Furthermore, Gian helped me to acquire financing and reliably answered post-sale questions. I would highly recommend Longshore Boats for those looking for a new or used boat.

Amazing people from start to finish at Longshore boats and our main point of contact Gian couldn’t have been more professional, attentive and simply made the whole process which began at the Charleston boat show in January to delivery on May 5 purely awesome. Gian walked us through the entire process, despite having been a boat owner for 14 years this is an entirely different boat than what we were used to and he was so helpful and I learned a lot. Lastly, they set us up with captain Mike, where we got to spend about 4 hours going through the boat on the water and learning just how incredibly awesome it is. Gian and the whole team at Longshore are simply the best. Cheers
