The Port of Brookings Harbor's newest business is ready to set up members of the community with the boat of their dreams.

Y-Marina recently opened its doors in the Chetco Village. Selling both new and used boats for river and ocean sailing, Y-Marina offers well-known brands such as Seaswirl, Sea Ray, Duckworth, North River, Yamaha and Evinrude.

The company is based out of Coos Bay. Brookings Harbor Sales Manager John Borja said making the decision to open a local branch at the port was an easy one.

"Everybody said, ‘Do it,'" Borja said, laughing. "The owner, Scott Lancaster, always wanted an outlet here in Brookings and he finally got one."

Borja said the port location already has boats to sell that are ready to use. Depending on how business progresses, the store may add some additional wares for its consumers.

"As soon as we sell some boats, we'll start adjusting as to what we need in terms of accessories," he said. "The boats we have now are ready to run and ready to be sold."

The store currently sells handmade crab traps as well as boats.

Serious buyers can even schedule a "demo ride" for a particular boat, Borja said.

Y-Marina is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Customers can reach the store at (541) 469-5267 or (541) 247-0913.

  • Wall St. closes down for January, Shake Shack rallies in debut
    This came after Greece's finance minister said the government would not cooperate with the European Union and International Monetary Fund mission.

  • U.S. economy cools in fourth quarter, but consumer spending shines
    U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter as weak business spending and a wider trade deficit offset the fastest pace of consumer spending since 2006. The slowdown followed two back-to-back quarters of bullish growth and is likely to be short-lived given the enormous tailwind from lower gasoline prices. Other data on Friday showed consumer sentiment jumped to an 11-year high in January. "We look for strong domestic consumption to continue supporting growth momentum in the coming quarters even as investment suffers due to falling oil prices," said Gennadiy Goldberg, an economist at TD Securities in New York.
  • Shake Shack IPO vaults shares into 'nosebleed' territory
    Shake Shack's debut is the latest in a string of blockbuster IPOs from trendy restaurant chains that cater to younger and more affluent diners willing to pay a bit more for fresher and higher quality food. Growth-hungry investors are hoping to replicate the red-hot run of industry darling Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG.N). Its IPO followed the successful listing two months ago of fellow premium burger seller Habit Restaurants (HABT.O). Based on 2013 earnings, the company that grew out of a hotdog cart in New York's Madison Square Park is trading at an eye-popping price-to-earnings ratio of about 325, with each restaurant valued at about $27 million.
