Axel Englund gave his community just that, and this was the belief that
Englund Marine was born with on July 22, 1944. His 50 by 50 store in
Astoria, OR later expanded up and down the west coast, becoming a
preferred and trusted name amongst commercial fishermen. The first expansion
came to Ilwaco, WA in 1966; followed by Westport in 1975. A few
years later Englund Marine opened a store in Charleston, OR and then
bought Crescent Marine in Crescent City, CA.
With the slowing economy in 1983, Englund Marine had a great opportunity
to move into another branch of the marine business. U.S. Distributing
was purchased out of Portland, which quickly became a great asset. In
1988 Englund Marine was in Newport, OR. Then bought SeaCoast out of
Portland and joined it with U.S. Distributing in 1994. SeaCoast specialized
with the industrial boats and expanded our capabilities even further.
One year later Englund Marine expanded their great service
attitude to Phoenix, AZ where they had an opportunity for another
distributor warehouse; Marine Wholesale was born. Our last store opened in Eureka, CA in 1995, serving the folks in Northern California better than ever. In 2001 we acquired Fischer Brothers, a 100 year old supply house and landmark in Astoria, OR, expanding our industrial product line and putting more salesmen on the road. Faced with the need for an updated facility, we moved into our new 40,000 square foot building located at the Port of Astoria in February 2006. Finally, in 2007 U.S. Distributing opened a warehouse in Missoula, MT to meet the need for quality products with fast delivery in the Rocky Mountain West.
Almost 70 years later, Englund Marine has grown its service rapidly, and is
still growing. We have a full service raft shop to keep crews safe and
up to date, and two stores have full rigging shops. It is all still based
on the same belief of, Quality merchandise and great service.
This is all possible from the dedication of our people. We pride ourselves
on being knowledgeable about our business. You will get advice from experts
in your field. We are here to help you and to solve your marine problems,
