About Us

1978Brothers and current owners David and John Moulton founded Riverfront Marine Sports, Inc. in 1978. Originally the shop was located on the Merrimac River, in their grandfather's garage. In this little garage is where David and John joined forces to build one of the North Shores largest and longest running boat dealerships, beginning with selling and repairing Mercury Outboards. David went to school to perfect his service skills and John went to Bentley College and earned a bachelors degree in accounting. So with David steadily repairing the motors and John steadily at the books, Riverfront Marine was on its way.
1982As time grew on and the business flourished, it became obvious that the garage would no longer be able to provide enough room for the brothers and their Mercury's. After careful consideration and much discussion David and John's parents (Ray & Kay Moulton, owners of Plum Islands Surfland Bait and Tackle) purchased a piece of land in Salisbury with the intentions of renting the land to David and John for their growing business. And so the shop took on its new location in Salisbury, MA. There the brothers had a house that provided a big garage and show room as well as plenty of yard space, in turn enough room to expand and take on boats as well.
1985After several years, the brothers decided that Riverfront Marine Sports, Inc. was progressively growing and needed a larger facility. With all of the yard space already at the Salisbury location, the next step was clear, "the big blue building" right off of interstate 95 and route 110, what you see now. By this time their sister Cathy Moulton had joined the family team adding to the customer relation and sales department.


1991Riverfront Marine acquired a marina on the scenic Parker River in Newbury, MA. Where our manager and friendly crew members will be more than happy to assist you in any of your docking needs.


2001With both locations flourishing the brothers decided it would be best to have David be the face of the marina. So David moved down to the Parker River to take over as the General Manager of our marina providing our marina customers with the exceptional service they have become accustomed to receiving from Riverfront Marine.
2004Our Marina in Newbury underwent a large renovation project with an all new state of the art service department, new parts department, new storage racks and more. It is our goal to make boating as fun and worry free while improving our services and facility.
2015Our Marina in Newbury removed the old storage buildings and installed a new Butler storage building with added rack storage spaces for the winter
At this time Riverfront Marine is proud to say that we have been in business for over 37 years and counting. Riverfront is a family owned and opperated business, with David managing the marina in Newbury and the Salisbury crew has John at the sales desk, John's daughter Sarah doing the bookkeeping and in the Ship Store, Cathy still assisting in business decisions and not to mention the many skilled crew members at both locations. We will all be glad to help you!
