Our Story


Brothers, Bob & Dave, Carolina boys, started Conrad Brothers in April of 1948.     They built their first fleet of rental boats by hand and rented them on newly filled   Claytor Lake and operated the store on Rt. 100, which was the main drag throughthe region at that time.

The Conrad brothers had the first boating business on the Lake and in a short time they were servicing and mooring over 300 boats.  The boat dock was reached by 90 steps down to the water behind the old store.  Many present day customers still recall the hard climb back up those stairs after a day on the water.

Today, Conrad Brothers Marine,  in our second generation of family ownership, has locations at Smith Mountain Lake and Claytor Lake.  We have an experienced staff with an average tenure of more than 20 years.  It is our goal to provide world class service to our customers.
