Took delivery of a new Jupiter last week from Bob. We knew we would like the boat, we were equally impressed with Bob Hodge Marine. Bob negotiated a fair deal and took our trade. He communicated frequently during the build and was generous with advice. Bob knows his boats well so we respected his input. Dana is excellent with the documentation and paperwork. The whole team was always professional and friendly. We recommend this exceptional dealership.

We are so happy with our SeaRay 420. Eric was amazing and went above and beyond in taking care of us.

Thank you to Bob Hodge Marine and Eric for everything!

Terry R.

Received your payment in full!

Simply can't thank Bob and staff enough for your diligent effort in selling our boat!

You are the greatest!

Kevin was awesome, and treated us great when we purchased our new 25' Jupiter Bay and helped sell our trade within two weeks. Definitely would recommend!!

Very shortly after my request for information I was contacted by Kevin Zimmerman. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Within a very short period of time, he had me on the water in the specific boat I was interested in. I am fairly knowledgeable of your product and have 13 years of boating experience in Sarasota, however, Kevin brought several features to my attention that I was not aware of and truly sold me on the Jupiter product. Unfortunately we have not yet come together on price.  

No matter what I buy, I will highly recommend Kevin and Jupiter to others! 

Best regards, 



Bought a used boat from out of the area. Kevin and Dana were exceptional, very helpful and responsive. Aside from doing exceptional jobs as professionals, they're also great people to deal with. Couldn't be happier with our boat and the entire experience we had dealing with Kevin and Dana.

We had a wonderful experience at Bob Hodge Marine! From the moment my husband found our 1988 Contender on boat trader and called, Stoney stayed in contact with him. Stoney went above and beyond keeping us in the loop of everything happening and even went and picked up our new trailer we purchased for the boat. He brought it the marina to fit the boat on it and sent pics. We would definitely recommend Bob Hodge Marine to anyone looking to purchase a boat! We also had things we wanted to add and change on our boat and they did it right at Aquamarina in Cape Haze where we bought the boat. Ed the service manager and Scott the mechanic went above and beyond as well doing everything we wanted and helped us make choices. We are very greatful for them all! Stoney still checking in with us after we took our boat home!

Thanks guys for all your hard work and help! We can tell you really enjoy your jobs!

Sincerely David and Mary L.

I recently purchased a 38’ 1967 Chris Craft Commander from Bob Hodge Marine Group.  My Broker “Buzzy” Beaulieu was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional.  Also, Ms. Dana Galvao in the main office was outstanding at handling all bank transactions, necessary paperwork and documentation.  If you are looking to purchase a vessel, do yourself a favor and contact the Bob Hodge Marine Group; you won’t be disappointed.

We wanted to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to Stoney for being a true professional as he sold our boat, an Azure 210. As this was our first experience working with a boat broker, we were referred to Stoney by a friend in our community. Stoney knows boats and was committed to selling our boat for the “right” price vs. having a quick sale. He did his homework and researched what similar boats were selling for. The process was easy and efficient.  Stoney was never concerned about his commission only wanting to get the best price for us on our boat. We will definitely call Stoney in a heartbeat if we buy or sell another boat and highly recommend him!

Bob is a wonderful person and a great dealer. As a 2 time Jupiter owner I am happy to see such a reputable dealer in town for this high quality brand.

It has been nothing short of a sincere pleasure working with Bob and the team at Bob Hodge Marine Group. Starting with the initial negotiation process, through the survey and the ultimate sale, everyone was incredibly friendly, respectful and helpful. 

Every single interaction I had was met with a great attitude and people that seemed to be genuinely happy working with me.

Bob and the team even went so far as to help me go through the punch list that came up on the survey and executed it with fair rates and super fast timing. 

I couldn't be more grateful for the experience I had working with them. Everyone has a labor of love relationship with their boat, so I'm happy I got to start the relationship as such a positive one.

No words are bold enough to support the honest nature of Bob Hodge, Kevin Zimmerman and their entire staff. I am working on my second boat purchase from them now! They have gone out of their way to support my family's boating requirements, and always taken the time to explain every detail. I not only know I am getting a safe boat in extraordinary condition, but one HELL OF A DEAL as well, and as I venture into the 50ft + yacht realm, saving money is always a PLUS! Go see them. They are like family to us now!

I wanted to let you know that your office is certainly an impressive operation.  From start to finish, the sale of my boat was handled with precision.  I was extremely fortunate that you were headquartered at Palm Island Marina.

When I decided to upgrade to a larger boat, the one hurdle I faced was selling my smaller boat.  Living in Rhode Island, I realized right away that it would be a virtually impossible task.  When you took over the process, I knew I was in the best of hands.  Not only are you knowledgeable about the marine industry, it became clear right from the beginning that you are a person of great integrity.

I am not surprised that you were able to sell my boat in the manner that you did.  Because there are 2 types of people in the world:  those that just hold a job and those that "do a job".  The bottom line is that you are just such a professional in every way, and this explains why you are so successful.

Now that you have helped me by selling my smaller boat, I can tun my attention on trying to figure out how to steer the bigger inboard boat!  As the forklift guys that watch me flounder and flail can attest, I have an awful lot to learn!

Thank you Stoney!

A true class act in the industry.  I have known Bob Hodge since I was very young and he has always been a remarkable example of how people within the marine industry should conduct themselves.

Buzzy -- Thanks so much for helping get the boat sold.  It was a very professional process and I certainly will highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a boat.


"Bob has sold my late husband and I four boats over the past years. We started with a small 28 ft. and worked our way up to a 60 ft. He has always been the most honest, professional and helpful person we have ever met. He is from the old school, "His word is his bond." If you are thinking about a boat, please see Bob before you make your purchase. You will not be sorry you did.”

C. Philips

"Thanks so much to Stoney and Dana for your extreme courtesy and for being so professional and for being good listeners to your customers!  Really, I have been in this business for 10 years now and your team is a marvellous one!  A great pleasure to work with.— international purchaser of 2001 Boston Whaler 210 Outrage.”
