About Defender

Marine Outfitter of Choice

Since our start in 1938, Defender has worked hard to build an excellent reputation as a marine retailer and earn the trust and loyalty of boaters around the world. Our mission is to be your marine outfitter of choice, offering you the widest selection of products at the most competitive prices, and providing only the best customer service.

Family-Owned Since 1938

Based in Waterford, Connecticut, Defender is a family-owned company that has been in business for over 70 years. Defender stocks over 50,000 brand name products and is the largest single location dealer of inflatable boats in North America, with over 2,500 boats and motors in stock!

Our Low Price Promise

Defender is an authorized U.S. dealer/distributor for everything we sell. We offer new products backed by manufacturers' warranties. If you find a lower delivered price on an identical in-stock product from another authorized USA dealer, please email us at or call us at 800-628-8225. In most cases we will match or beat the price. We want to earn your business so we stock trusted, well-known brands, have a friendly knowledgeable staff and offer you the best value!

Outstanding Customer Service

Defender's Call Center and Outlet Store are staffed by friendly and knowledgeable boaters like you. Our employees have hundreds of years of combined boating experience, and we are familiar with your needs as a boater. Most orders placed before 4:30 pm Eastern Time Monday - Friday will be shipped that same day. We charge all shipping up front, with few exceptions, so you aren't penalized for any separate shipments due to back orders or drop shipped items. We ship worldwide and to boats in transit. We are committed to earning your trust and respect by offering friendly service, ongoing support, and of course - great value.
