The history begins in 1981 when Waterway Inc. was established. Upon the start of doing business, Waterway Marine Service began to service and repair pleasure and commercial vessels. Waterway Power Center was created in 2000 to import and distribute Kubota/Toyota based Nanni Diesel engines for the east coast of the USA.
Waterway Marine has a service department with knowledgeable mechanics for repair work from routine service of engines, out drives, transmissions and generators to major rebuilding and repowering of vessels from 9hp to 1200hp. Waterway also has extensive history with NBC satellite trucks. This history includes the redesigning of generator power systems, servicing and maintaining the trucks for immediate use and reliability. Waterway has an extensive history in stand-by generator systems for buildings as well. In 1990 Waterway Marine Service was contracted by the Navy to work on the life boats such as the U.S. Comfort (hospital ship). Our engineering division developed the hydraulic start systems for all 12 life boats of the U.S. Comfort to use for easier starting capability. We fabricated and installed these systems to each life boat. For years we worked to maintain and keep running all the life boats for the US Navy. The engineers at Waterway are certainly capable of custom building for any special application.
Waterway Marine Service provides the highest quality of work on a wide array of products. For over 20 years Waterway Marine Service has been a dealer and certified for Bukh, Westerbeke, Yanmar, Volvo, Detroit, Cummings, Onan, and Kohler. Waterway Marine Service believes that having to order parts doesn’t give good service, which is why we stock proper inventory. Our parts department stocks enough parts and inventory to back up the retail and service portions of our business. We support our dealers by offering them special pricing for parts in inventory. The great thing about Kubota engines is that for example there are 1500 Kubota dealers on the east coast alone, so parts availability is almost immediate and at a fraction of the marine cost.
Before taking on Nanni Diesel in 2000, extensive research was performed by traveling to the factory (in France) to observe ethics and quality of this product. After extensive comparison of all the product lines we have carried over the years, we have found that the principal of simplicity, ease of maintenance, followed by reliability were tremendous, and the Nanni ethics were impeccable.
Waterway Power Center imports and distributes Kubota and Toyota based Nanni Diesel engines. These engines are sold to repower and/or for new construction of sail and power boats of all types. WPC has three subdivisions including dealer development, a sales division and an engineering division.
We have developed a dealer network for support which stretches from Maine to Panama, and we continue to grow. We hold extensive yearly training courses for our dealers and engine owners at our 10,000 square foot building in Annapolis Maryland. These classes teach our product line to our dealers for them to be able to support this product and their customers on a high level of standards.
Our Sales Division of Waterway Power Center has done an outstanding job of building great ties with boat builders and dealers around the world. A few of our accomplishments include multiple sales to Morris Yachts (out of Maine), Fortuna Catamarans (out of South Africa), Ocean Catamarans (out of South Carolina). We engage in many different boat shows throughout the year such as Miami, Atlantic City, Maine Boat Builders, Annapolis Sail and Power shows and IBEX.
The engineering division of Waterway Power Center is a great resource for helping to develop intricate systems and requirements for special applications. This division has many years of experience in developing special systems from scratch and takes pride in new developments and their achievements.
As Waterway INC progresses we plan to put more emphasis on our import and distribution of Kubota/Toyota based Nanni Diesel engines. We will still give the best service possible, you can always count on us.
