Marine starters may look similar to automobile starters, however they cannot be interchanged. Marine starters are designed to arrest any stray sparks caused by the starter brushes and solenoids when the boat is running to reduct the risk of an explosion.

Alternators that are installed on boats must also pass strict marine certification requirements to avoid sparks that may cause a fire or explosion. There is a reason why you should only trust a reputable marine electrical specialist when looking for your next marine starter or alternator.

We carry marine starters for almost every boat.
