The name MARE is an acronym for Marine And Recreational Equipment; the name was changed by one of the previous owners because it was to long for a business card.

On Halloween night 1988, Brian and Chris Lancaster with The Pedersen family,  parents of Chris, purchased MARE Inc. from the Reed family. Brian and Chris had been

Bass Boat customers at MARE Inc. before purchasing the business. MARE Inc. opened their second location; MARE of Aquia in 1998. Thanks for reading the history of
