The Boathouse At Moes Marine & Lyman Life Opening At Former Buyers Fair Building

Moes Marine Service, Inc. has announced that Buyer's Fair is now The Boathouse at Moes Marine. This 15,000 sq ft space will be a wood boat showroom, as well as boat storage.

Lyman Life is also coming to the former Buyers Fair space in downtown Vermilion, Ohio. The front section of the building will be a retail store offering Lyman Life genuine licensed apparel and accessories. Doors open this Friday at 1 pm.

Lyman Life was created by the Burke Family in homage to Lyman Boat Works, and to carry on and honor the core values of this truly authentic American brand. Lyman Life celebrates the quality and tradition of Lyman Boats and the memories created with family and friends on the water.

The Burke Family wanted fellow Lyman lovers to recognize one another, even when the boat's out of the water. So when they learned that no one was offering Lyman logo items, they acquired the rights and did it themselves, creating clothing and accessories to celebrate the lifestyle and the legacy that is Lyman.

Whether you own a Lyman, were touched by one growing up, or you simply like the cool designs of an authentic, American vintage brand; either way, Lyman Life is made for you.
