After a dedicated sixty years in the marine business, Harvey Marine will be closing.
With the passing of its founder and owner, Ed Harvey, last year, the time has come to close its doors and transition to the next venture. Ed loved the business, his customers, suppliers, and the Harvey Rabbit followers. He genuinely enjoyed being a part of this community.
The Harvey Business Trust will assume all responsibilities for our website, Facebook, and the iconic Harvey Rabbit. The Trust owns a small amount of marine parts, which will be temporarily sold online.
As we move forward, the property will continue to develop. In fact, we are very proud to announce Black Rock Coffee Bar is already up and running, and we are truly excited to work with such a great company. The remaining property site received approval for two new retail spaces, while a significant portion of the existing building may serve as a possible restaurant.
Please know our beloved Harvey Rabbit will not be leaving. He constitutes an important part of the property and community and will be included in any and all future changes. For now, we plan on giving him a new paint job and possibly repositioning him for a much-needed sidewalk.
With substantial growth in the area and the new South Hillsboro Project taking off, we look forward to the future and remaining an active presence in the community.
In 1953, Ed Harvey founded Harvey Marine. The business, located in Aloha, Oregon, would serve the marine and boating industry for a dedicated sixty years.
After Ed's passing, the Harvey family made the difficult decision to move onto its next venture. The Harvey Business Trust owns a small amount of marine parts.
We are happy to announce the Trust will sell these parts temporarily. Please visit our "Shop Here" link to see which are available.

Past and Present
We are home to one of America's beloved roadside
behemoths: "The Harvey Rabbit." Harvey stands 26' tall and kindly waves to all who pass him on the highway.
Because the Harvey Rabbit maintains a significant presence in the community, he will remain on site as the property develops into the future. He is proud to serve as a new "neighbor" to Black Rock Coffee Bar.
Fun Fact: Harvey the Giant Rabbit is such a locally recognized icon he has even been visited as secret rendezvous point for FBI agents and an informant!
