Our History

Chester Arthur was President of the United States when we opened our doors here on the Navesink River. There have been 24 presidents since then, but only three Irwins at the helm of our marine dealership.

Steam driven sidewheelers plied the river and oyster fishermen harvested the bountiful local waters in 1884 when Charles P. Irwin grew the marina from a dock and a shack to a yard capable of servicing 35 to 40 boats.The wizard of Menlo Park, Thomas Edison worked at Irwin Marine developing sonar! Today you’re more likely to see stars like Jon Bon Jovi along the waterfront of Red Bank.

Sagamore Blue acquired the property from the Irwin family in 2022, and we're excited to continue the long legacy of boating fun and adventure on the Navesink.
