Blackburn Marine originated in Houston in 1967, and has been serving the marine industry ever since. The store moved to Kemah in December 1991. They will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2017.
Blackburn was originally wholesale only, but in 2010, they moved to the old Blue Water Ship’s store building on Marina Bay Drive and opened a retail division, in addition to wholesale. This store is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.
When visiting Blackburn Marine, you will find customer service employees that specialize in everything from sailing, power boating, electrical, plumbing, detailing with compounds and polishes, wood finishing, painting and all the supplies to go with it and much more. If you prefer to do-it-yourself or you are a contractor, Blackburn Marine can help with any and all boating and supply needs. Their team excels in customer service, you can ask them anything!
In December 2012, Ruthie, Steve and Casey Lambert took over ownership of Blackburn Marine and since then, their oldest son, Calan, has joined the team. They have all been on the water their whole lives and know the boating industry very well. Buying Blackburn could not have been a better fit.
