Refund and Returns Policy

Refunds and Returns Policy

We want all our customers to be satisfied with their purchases. Our aim is to make purchasing products as easy as possible so you can spend more time on the water. We understand from time to time a purchase may need to be exchanged or refunded. Our refunds and returns policy is intended to assist you with getting the right product for your boating experience.

If you purchased a product from The Marine Store@Stones Boatyard which has failed or is not working as specified within the manufacturer’s noted warranty period, you should contact us and provide proof of date of purchase in the form of a receipt. After confirming the failure and date of purchase, we will issue you a full refund for the cost of the purchase or exchange it for a new product (less shipping and restocking fees, if applicable).

You may return your purchase to us within 30 days of internet sales/14 business days of in-store sales, and we will refund the purchase price of the product (not including shipping charges), once the item is received by us.

If you return an item, it must be received within 30 days in new, unused and resalable condition. Each item must be in the original packaging with tags still attached. We will closely inspect all returned items prior to acceptance – scratched, damaged, worn, washed, or altered products will not be accepted. If an item is received in any of these conditions, we will contact you and it will be your responsibility to pay the return shipping to your address. We will only hold these items for you for 60 days and they will then be discarded at your expense.

Additional fees may apply if the return does not include the product’s original packaging. Shipping charges are non-refundable. Return shipping costs will be at your expense.
