If the guy in your life is hoping to shop for a motorcycle or motorboat, or just wants to spend a day exploring either possibility, many choices for both exist within a few minutes’ drive for Draper residents. No trip to Salt Lake City is necessary to see the latest and greatest motorized toys!


Both Taylor’s Boats and South Valley Harley Shop are open Monday-Saturday, and the owners and employees invite you to come in to get to know them. They welcome new and old friends alike!

Taylor’s Boats

Just south of Ikea off the Bangerter exit, Taylor’s Boats has been in business for 30 years, 11 at its current location. Taylor Richards founded the business because of his love for family time spent boating and creating memories on the water.

“Wake surfing has exploded in this area and across the nation, and the boats we carry are the best surf boats in the industry,” Brady Hartvigsen, Taylor’s marketing director, says. “It’s an exciting action sport, but easy to learn for all ages, great for families or groups of friends.”

Taylor’s sells Malibu, Axis and Cobalt brand boats along with accessories and gear from Hyperlite, Phase Five Wakesurfers and HO Sports. Check out the Malibu 23LSV, a best-selling all-around boat.


South Valley Harley Shop

With Harley-Davidson clothing, parts, service and sales, there’s much to admire in this 15,000-square foot-shop located at 8886 Sandy Parkway. Al Brown, general manager of the business that’s been open since 2000, describes it as local ma and pa shop.

“We cultivate friends out of customers,” he says.

Prices range from $5,000 for used bikes to up to $43,000 for an ultimate model. Summer is a great time to buy because the store has its best inventory of the year, making choosing your model and color a breeze. The shop offers news rider education classes, and on Saturdays, you can stop in for free coffee and donuts or food trucks on-site.
