More Information
Steve Arnold is the owner of Yarmouth Boat Yard and Moose Landing Marina. Originally from Fort Lauderdale, Steve grew up working in marinas. He started out as a yard hand and worked his way up to management roles before heading off to college at Florida State University. After earning his MBA and his private pilot’s license, Steve embarked a career in finance.

Seeking a richer quality of life, Steve moved to Maine in 2003 to enjoy family time 'the way life should be'. He purchased Yarmouth Boat Yard in January 2004, happily shifting from his career as the Vice President of Trading at Goldman Sachs to focus on his passion for boats.

At that time, Yarmouth Boat Yard had just one employee and sold a single line of boats. Over the course of the next few years, Steve and his General Manager Shawn Dumas cobbled together a few more employees and more boat lines. Today Yarmouth Boat Yard employs seventeen full time employees and carries Pursuit, Eastern, Parker and Sea Fox boats. The boat yard continues to thrive and grow, priding itself on its high customer satisfaction. This is directly correlated to strong team of steadfast employees Steve has brought together and each team member’s determination to provide customers with the best possible boating experience each and every day.

In 2013, Steve capitalized on the opportunity to expand his business footprint by buying Moose Landing Marina in Naples, Maine. The largest on water facility in Maine’s lakes region, Steve clearly understood the enormous potential of the facility. The fresh water environment posed a new set of challenges to overcome with shorter seasons, a faster pace, and larger volumes. With a focus on providing exceptional customer service, he worked to attract, retain, and train a staff of dedicated professionals. Today Moose Landing is not only one of the largest Yamaha dealers in the Northeast, they also are the largest pontoon and deck boat dealer in the region selling Nautic Global, Premier and South Bay Pontoons, and Hurricane deck boats. The Marina also sells Moomba, Supra, and Regal boats, as well as Ranger Tugs. They have seventeen employees, a fleet of sixty-eight rental boats, and another boat rental location at Point Sebago Resort. Steve’s careful planning and execution have proved successful. Since 2013, Moose Landing has almost doubled in revenue.

A family man, Steve has four children and resides in Yarmouth, Maine. He is an active member of the community, and is the Chairman of the Yarmouth Harbor and Waterfront Committee, as well as a member on the committee to build a new Harbor Master building. He is also a Board Member of Maine Marine Trades Association and a past member of the Yarmouth Planning Board.

When not overseeing things at his two locations, Steve is often found out on the water, enjoying boating and quality time with family and friends.
