About Us

Welcome to Boat Stuf!  It is our pleasure to help you with your boating needs. 

Boat Stuf was started in 1984 by Eric Beier as a division of Frank L. Beier Radio, Inc., which has been in business since 1945.

Management Team
   
Eric and Sharon Beier - President -  Eric grew up in the marine electronics business carrying tool boxes for his father on and off tow boats, yachts, and ships in his pre-teen years and assisting with electronics installs during high school and college.  Eric worked in the oilfield as a Coast Guard licensed crew boat captain and graduated from LSU.  He attended grad school and worked for a CPA firm for three years including a stint on active and reserve duty with the U.S. Army.  He and Sharon married early in 1969.  Both are native New Orleanians.  Eric and Sharon became 100% owners of Boat Stuf in 2006 with Eric overseeing the day to day operations and sales of the Harvey location.  Eric and Sharon are Life Sponsors in Perpetuity with Ducks Unlimited and Eric was a past State Chairman.  When not at the duck camp, they enjoy sport fishing and boating on the Tchefuncte River.  Having travelled quite a bit, Eric and Sharon mostly love to entertain at home and from their second home, “the RV”, at Mardi Gras.  Of course, anything to do with the grandkids tops the list.  And, Sugar is always adding to the fun.  She retrieved over 150 ducks this year alone.  Her day job is as the Harvey store’s mascot and greeter.
