McDuffie Marine History

The McDuffie Marine Legacy

The total approach to outdoor sports is something the McDuffies were born into. Their late grandfather, Bill McDuffie, started the business in 1950 as a tire shop. He began carrying a few outboard motors, then stocked boats and branched into fishing and hunting equipment. Bill McDuffie dropped the tire side after a few years and moved into a larger building in downtown Lake City. His son, Bill, took over the business later. Dal and Lee joined their father in the family business.

In 1990, The McDuffies moved the store and boat lot from downtown Lake City to a new building on seven acres along busy U.S. 90 just east of I-75 in order to meet our growing community's needs. Bill McDuffie has since retired, trusting in Dal and Lee to carry on the McDuffie Legacy.

Dal and Lee McDuffie think of their business as a one-stop shopping center for anyone who fishes, hunts, boats, or runs all-terrain vehicles. McDuffie's stocks fishing tackle, hunting and shooting supplies, apparel, marine hardware & accessories, electronics, ATV accessories, along with a vast selection of boats and ATV's.

Dealers with narrower selections might feel intimidated by an inventory that travels in so many different directions. But for McDuffie Marine and Sporting Goods, diversification equals security.
