Boating Season

Marine 360 and its partners bring the best in boating to Lake Murray

Boating season is just around the corner. Just ask Captain "Wild Bill Wichrowski, the rugged Alaska king-crab fisherman from TV's "Deadliest Catch." He'll be getting on the water right here in the Midlands, thanks to help from Marine 360. In fact, Brandon Crutchfield, Scott Muckenfuss and the entire team at Marine 360 are dedicated to helping everyone make the most of every boating day. Since 2007, Brandon and Scott have shared one common goal: to provide the highest quality boating sales and service in the Midlands area. With a focus on innovation, quality and overall customer needs, Brandon and Scott have cultivated partnerships that make this goal a reality.  

Marine 360 is the authorized Sea Hunt dealer for this Columbia-based company. In 1995, the father and son team of Vic & Bubba Roof started Sea Hunt Boat Company in a modest one-room shop in a small plant. What began as a goal of building a best-in-class affordable boat has exploded into the number one selling boat in the country. Everything they do is based on innovation, design, and customer care. And they are still involved in every part of the process, showing off their molding techniques in a recent factory tour. 

At Marine 360, Brandon and Scott praise the versatility of the Sea Hunt boat. “It’s truly made with the entire family in mind,” says Scott. He is quick to point out the fishing features as well as the comfort components. The fact that owners can use the boat on Lake Murray as well as the Atlantic Ocean is the ultimate benefit. 

Ultra is currently the most popular Sea Hunt series. Designed specifically for families, it delivers the most comfortable and functional center console available in the boating world. With its cushioned rear bench seating and oversized bow area, it's easy to sit back and enjoy pleasure cruising and sandbar hopping. Another great option for families is the Escape series, which has many similar features. With either you’ll find the most comfortable fishing boat on the water.

The most serious fishermen should consider both the Bay Boat series and Gamefish series. Bay Boats feature shallow drafts, dual casting platforms, lockable rod storage, and aerated livewells. The Gamefish series has standard features such as multiple insulated fishboxes and livewells, cockpit and bow bolsters, all stainless hardware and Yamaha Digital Command Link Gauges. Cockpits are designed to have an abundance of room for 360° of fishing. All the while, the hulls deliver soft dry rides that are second to none.

Marine 360 is also the authorized dealer for Crest, and is considered a national leader in sales of these pontoon boats. Since 1957, Crest has sought to deliver the highest standard in pontoons, focusing on construction and reliability. Each model is designed with comfortable amenities, innovative features, and superior quality. 

The Classic Family is home to Crest’s signature pontoon models. Featuring traditional lines, countless customizations and fishing packages for the most avid anglers, the Classic Family delivers on quality, construction, style and fun. 

The Caribbean Family boasts unprecedented performance and modern styling to deliver unforgettable days on the water. With sleek lines, available tower options, unique color combinations and top-quality construction, this series guarantees a premium pontoon experience. 

The Luxury Family represents the pinnacle of lavish amenities, unprecedented performance, and comfortable convenience. This series prides itself on anticipating every need and desire to ensure the most reliable and luxurious on-water experience. With thoughtful options, an industry-first integrated dual windshield and premium upholstery and audio upgrades, this series is certain to surpass all expectations. 

In addition to boats from Sea Hunt and Crest, Marine 360 also offers a variety of other products to fulfill your boating needs. Marine 360 is an authorized dealer for Mercury, Suzuki, Volvo-Penta, and Yamaha.

Plus, every boat needs a trailer! Marine 360 has you covered with a variety of options from Wesco Trailers. Choose from galvanized, aluminum, or those made specifically for pontoons. Beyond trailers for boats, Marine 360 offers custom utility trailers, a personal watercraft series perfect for your jet-skiing transportation needs, and the Wesco KX series, which is quickly becoming a favorite with the kayak community. 

All boat owners are determined to ensure that their watercrafts remain in great working order for years to come. To accomplish that, boat owners need the knowledge and skills that come with a reputable service team. Marine 360’s highly trained technicians are dedicated to maintaining and servicing boats in a timely manner. Led by Smyth McCrady, the service technicians are trained and qualified to work on all marine products. Plus, the Marine 360 team features the one and only Yamaha Master Technician in the Midlands!

No need to put off your boating dreams for another season. Led by Scott Muckenfuss, the Finance team at Marine 360 strives to make purchasing your new boat a timely reality. With a variety of financing options available, they are determined to help you establish a plan that helps you get out on the water as soon as possible. 

For sales and service, you’ll find Marine 360’s location in Lighthouse Marina on Lake Murray to be ideal for providing the best customer service. This prime spot in the Irmo/Chapin area was picked to ensure that Marine 360 could continually cultivate a long-term relationship with its customers. Visit the showroom this spring to view the large selection of new and pre-owned inventory boats. And we’ll see you on the lake really soon!
