Marlon Rhoden provides trailer services to new and experienced boat owners

Marlon Rhoden, owner and operator of Marlon’s Boat Trailer Rental LLC, offers boat trailer rentals island-wide for those who need to get their boat from point Ato point B without any hassle. Most recently, 46-year-old Rhoden provided his services to Walt Disney Productions, which sparked a dramatic boom in business for this Mililani resident.

“In April I received a very exciting phone call from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides 4. They needed a trailer and they needed it now. They had an emergency and I delivered,” Rhoden recalls. “They wanted to rent my trailer for one day - one day turned in to three days. Fast forward: I was signed up with Walt Disney Productions as a contract vendor before I knew it.”

A Screen Actors Guild member, Rhoden marveled that he was now on the other side of the business - no longer as a stand-in, extra or production assistant, but as a business owner.

“For the past 20 years, I have been featured in movies such as George of the Jungle, Blue Crush and many others,” he says, “and it made me so proud to say that, wow, Disney was using my trailers.”

Rhoden started his business in 2005 after realizing that few people own a 30-foot trailer that could accommodate his own boat. Since then he has received many requests for help from new and experienced boat owners.

“I will come out and pick up your boat using my new ABT all-aluminum trailer, take it to your destination, or pull it out of the water for you so your mechanic can work on it, or when it’s time for cleaning,” Rhoden explains, adding that he offers high-pressure waxing services as well.

Prices range from $500 for roundtrip service to $250 for a trailer rental (per boat pull-out/in water, etc.), $150 for a high-pressure boat wash and $75 a day for trailer rental.
