Marine Power Specialists
Boatswains Locker started in 1939, when the Orange County coastline was still largely undeveloped and had a relatively small boating community. Captain John Reckman opened a boatyard in Newport Beach, naming it "Boatswain's Locker" (pronounced "bosun") after the officer in charge of a ships' storage locker. The fledgling company began as one of the first businesses to service boats in the Newport Harbor area.
Boatswains Locker provides sales, service, support and warranty for: Yanmar Marine Diesel Engines, MerCruiser Sterndrives, MerCruiser Inboards, Mercury QuickParts, Kohler Marine Generators, Hamilton Jet Systems, Jabsco Pumps, Kobelt Marine Parts, First Mate Remanufactured Engines, ZF-Hurth Transmissions. FPT/IVECO Commercial Engines, Mitsubishi Commercial Engines, Scania Commercial engines, Kohler Commercial Marine Generators, Hamilton Jet Systems, ZF-Hurth Transmissions.
In the early 1960's, in addition to being a service facility, Boatswain's Locker began selling and installing marine engines, and they soon became the repowering specialists for the Newport Harbor boating community.
