The Ship’s Chandler is a family-run boating and fishing business that’s been in Destin since 1980. Currently owned by Peter Wright, the business was started originally by his father. Peter Wright Jr, Peter’s son, is also a prominent figure in the business. Needless to say, the business is here to stay and with the Wright family managing it. If you buy a boat or an outboard motor from us today, unlike many businesses, we’ll be here in the future to support any boat and tackle needs you might have.
If you’re not a current customer, come by anyway. We talk boats and fishing all day (Life IS Good!) and we’d love to talk with you. We won’t try to sell you something you don’t need. We hope you’ll do business with us, of course, but if you don’t buy your next boat from us, come by anyway, and we’ll still talk to you about your fishing needs or perhaps customizations you might like to make to your boat. We know the best boats for Destin area fishing, and what the best tackle, bait and locations are for what’s biting. Destin hasn’t changed much since 1980, there’s just more of it.
