Over 50 years ago, David “Fred” Brownell revolutionized the way that boats were stored with his invention of the Brownell Boat Stand. Since then, our boat stand system has been proven to be the fastest, safest and most reliable way to store boats out of the water. It is the unique design of Brownell Boat Stands that allows boat yards to be able to store more boats per square foot, allowing them to maximize space and increase revenue.

When not in use, the unique stacking and nesting design of the Brownell Boat Stands allows them to be neatly stored without taking up a lot of space. Today, it is possible to see the eye-catching blue and orange products of Brownell Boat Stands at professional boat yards and marinas all over the world.
