API Marine was started over 50 years ago by Howard Yasgar and Don Chaite as a remanufacturing company. As with many companies serving the marine industry, they wanted to offer marine dealers an alternative to expensive OEM parts, like starters, alternators, and power trim/tilt motors and pumps.
Thirty-three years later, the management team decided to become a supplier (instead of a remanufacturer) to both marine distributors and OE accounts, such as OMC and Mercury.
Mergers and acquisitions have become commonplace in the industry and in 2013, SEI Marine Products bought API Marine with the goal of expanding into the marine electric parts business. Today, SEI is the largest supplier of aftermarket lower units for outboards and sterndrive.
We are proud to stock and ship API Marine replacement parts, such as inboard starters, outboard starters, marine alternators, tilt & trim motors, and starter solenoids.
With distribution centers in Michigan, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Ohio, we reach over 90% of the U.S. leisure boating market in two days or less. Regardless of where you live, we ship to all 50 states and to most countries worldwide. You can expect us to ship most products the same day you submit your order.
