Along the edge of Southeastern Massachusetts lies a cove where the Acushnet river flows into Buzzards Bay. Here lies “The City that lit the world”. New Bedford was once the whaling capital of the world. It is now ranked the #1 most profitable fishing port for over a decade. Each year, nearly 50 million pounds of sea scallops arrive at the city docks. Standard Marine Outfitters take great pride in the city’s history and current economic standing. We will be the one stop shop for New Bedford’s fisherman and will carry on lasting traditions and legacies.
