Marine Mart, Port Isabel TX

Most recent update: August 10, 2014.


Marine Mart, Inc., was owned by Walter and William Zimmerman and produced 240 fishing vessels in a life of 22 years.  It was located at 400 E. Washington Street: see it from the air on Google here.  As you can see, it occupied a good-sized property and must have had a Syncrolift with a transfer pit and five shoreside work stations - a very nice arrangement.  If anyone can add to the table below, please e-mail timcolton@aol.com
