The Gardella Family

Eighty years after Norwalk resident Louis Gardella turned a passion for boating into a business, his family is still carrying on the tradition. Since humble beginnings in 1936 as Connecticut’s first Chris Craft dealer, Rex Marine Center has grown to one of the largest recreational and commercial marine operations in the Northeast. Now in their fourth generation the Gardella’s continue to offer the best in sales, craftsmanship, service, equipment and storage. Stop by and say hello, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here for you 7 days a week.
