about Marine Specialties ☼ Hawaii



Marine Specialties has been providing the marine industry here in Hawaii with some of the best marine products since 1993. From our humble beginnings, our belief has always been to obtain and provide the very best in marine steering and marine engine controls for our customers. We have started small with just Schmitt marine steering wheels and have slowly increased our product inventory to include Kobelt marine steering components, Kobelt marine controls, Orscheln marine cables and Parker marine hoses and fittings. We also offer Fujinon marine binoculars but are not kept in stock.


Our normal stocking inventory are marine steering and marine control components for boats up to 50 feet in length. We also provide steering and engine control components for larger vessels and tug boats on a special order basis.


The use of corrosion resistant material and quality in design and craftsmanship are what make the products we provide stand out above the competition. Though our products may cost more in the beginning, you will appreciate the value in the long run. The products we sell have been tested with time and outlast the competitors products. This means less down time and more time to enjoy you boat or vessel.


Marine Specialties is a small family run home based company. We do not have a fancy storefront and try to keep things simple. Our niche is not something boaters and fisherman purchase everyday so having a storefront would not make sense. Since the products we sell last a long time, many customers only repeat purchase when outfitting a new boat.


We offer all our marine products we stock for showing before you commit to purchase. Since there are stored in a secured warehouse, we ask that you give us at least an hour notice so we may pickup the item you would like to view.


Please have a closer look at the marine steering and marine control products we offer and rest assured that you will be purchasing quality of the highest grade from Marine Specialties.

It may be a bit old but it is the best thing which we could find to show you their total commitment to their products and the service they provide. More videos are available for viewing on our about Kobelt page. Kobelt has provided us with products of the highest quality and service beyond compare for all the years we have been in business. It is for these reasons that we stand behind their products 100%.


Kobelt also provides parts for all of their products. This is a great benefit to keep your investment going for many years after your purchase. Many of the competitive manufacturers do not provide this type of service and expect you to purchase a new product when just a small part need to be replaced. Providing replacement parts are Kobelt’s commitment to service after the sale.


Please note that the video says that Kobelt’s warranty is 5 years which has now been changed to 2 years. Even though their warranty period has been shortened, it is still considered to be one of the best warranties in the marine industry.
