Budget Marine’s flagship store and headquarters on Simpson Bay Lagoon carries the largest selection of marine products of any Caribbean chandlery. Staff members are dedicated to serving the special needs of Caribbean boaters and are well trained in technical and customer service issues. Every product in the catalog is normally in stock and our recent expansion of the sales floor facilitated incorporation of the stock of Nautique, the marine life style store previously located in the Simpson Bay Yacht Club complex. So in addition to the huge selection of boating equipment and supplies, customers will also find their favorite nautical clothing brand names. Visit the store by land or sea, the Budget Marine building is easy to see from the lagoon and there is plenty of space at the dinghy dock and in the parking lot.
Ample customer parking and dinghy dock.

Prices in our catalogue and on our website are “Caribbean List Prices” based on our sticker price in St. Maarten, NetherlandsAntilles, which is a duty free port. They do not necessarily reflect our selling prices in every location, although in all locations we can indicate to you what logic leads us to the particular pricing we maintain. All locations within the Budget Marine Group are committed to giving you the best possible pricing. To this extent we have many locations that maintain complicated duty free concessions. The cost of administering these facilities may however lead to variances from the catalogue pricing. All prices in our catalogue are shown in US dollars.
