Andy Bancroft, President and Owner
I knew what I wanted to do at an early age when 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 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. Now my wife is my bookkeeper and my parents still help around as needed. My son is my next "Boat Guy".
We continue to grow, evolving with the times, and bringing in new lines. We have a second location on MacArthur Boulevard in Bourne which is our showroom and now our main store. 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 20 years of operation, I will still continue to be involved in every aspect of the business, and hope that my extended family will to.
