Andy Bancroft, President and Owner
I knew what I wanted to do at an early age. I realized that everybody I knew had a boat, and everybody needed to have it serviced. With that in mind, I enrolled at the Upper Cape Regional Technical High School and began my studies in Marine Services.
I'm a life long Cape Cod and Falmouth resident, and started working in Falmouth boat yards gaining my experience and eventually specializing in Yamaha outboards. Soon I was taking on a lot of side boat work and realized I had enough work to start out on my own, so in 1992 I bought an old tool truck and turned it into a mobile work shop working out of my home and thus born "The Boat Guy".
As the projects and clients got bigger and bigger, I bought my first location in Cataumet. I needed staff to help me, so why not call on your family members. My mother was my office manager and my father worked on the boats with me. My wife is our bookkeeper, my brother Mark has joined our team and my parents still help out as needed. The Boat Guy family has grown to dozens of valued employees that we are lucky to work with each day. Who knows...maybe my son is the next "Boat Guy" !
We continue to grow, evolving with the times, selling and servicing not just boats but many lines of Power Equipment. In 2015 we opened our second location on MacArthur Boulevard in Bourne which is our showroom displaying 3 outboard lines and many power equipment products. Our philosophy has always been to strive for attention to detail in all we do... sales, service, and customer satisfaction. I am very proud of what we do here and after 25 years of operation, I will still continue to be involved in every aspect of the business, and hope that my extended family will too.
