Boats.com, in association with MarineMax, launched a gear and parts store that stocks everything from clothing and accessories to anchors, engine parts and water skis.

“Boats.com is evolving,” Sonya Schweitzer, director of business development at the division of Dominion Marine Media, said in a statement. “We are building on our unique knowledge of boats and boaters to provide boating enthusiasts with everything they need to ensure great experiences. We want our visitors to rely on Boats.com for all of their boating-related needs.”

Boats.com said Thursday that the store is open for business. It is the latest addition to the website, with such features as the Boats Blog, video boat reviews and boat test notes, boat loans and insurance, as well as the ability to buy and sell a boat and access regular “specials” in the store.

Boats.com describes itself as the global online resource for boat enthusiasts to explore, discover, manage and share information on a single website.
