Durland Boat Company

In 1954 Newton Durland started his own boat store. The shop was unique because it was not on the water or near a Marina. Situated on the busy Route 59 in Nanuet, N.Y., the store became a unique and frequent stop for boaters.
Pleasure boating was a fairly new hobby at the time, but Durland Boat Company flourished. Boating as a hobby was becoming more than just a rich man’s sport.
