About Us

Hansen-Marine-EngineeringHansen Marine Engineering, Inc. was incorporated in May of 1975. At that time the company consisted of 2 employees, Robert Hansen and Frederick Knowles. The business started as a marine engine parts and service shop primarily for the benefit of the local boat builders and yacht yards in and around the Northeast Atlantic coastal town of Marblehead, Massachusetts.

Hansen Marine Engineering, Inc. became the regional Master distributor for Westerbeke Corporation, a manufacturer of world-class diesel marine engines and industrial generators in 1979. As the business grew, Hansen Marine Engineering Inc. added several additional brand name products to their line, including Honda Power Equipment, Perkins, Volvo, Universal and Caterpillar just to name a few. Today Hansen Marine Engineering, Inc. employs roughly 10 full time individuals and is the largest Westerbeke generator, engine and parts supply company in the Nation. The company is also the exclusive worldwide distributor for the Westerbeke line of industrial/fire rescue generators.

Customer support and product service is what helped build our business to what it is today. That’s the key to our success, and we intend to keep that our primary objective in the years to come.
