♦ William Thomas 

Bill came to Marlow Marine with 25 years of business experience in the high tech computer industry where he started in customer service at 20 years old and worked his way up through sales and then to owning his own software company.  He grew up sailing in Annapolis and fishing in the outer banks of North Carolina.  Bill was the top selling new boat sales person at Marlow Marine within 24 months and was quickly promoted to New Boat Sales Manager.  Bill’s customer service and sales background has made him a natural at owner orientation for all of our customers.  In the last 8 years Bill has made it a point to get as much sea time on the boats as possible, taking boats to and from boat shows, picking up new boats at the port, and going on trips with customers as part of training.  If you don’t find Bill in the office he is probably on a boat learning something new..

♦ Eric Gervais

In his early years, Eric developed a strong love and respect for yachting, having explored many rivers, lakes and oceans while growing up in Coastal New England. During High School, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps (delayed entry program) to serve his country and further explore the world. Earning a meritorious promotion early in his career, he seized the opportunity for extensive travel abroad on the Marine Security Guard Program (a “joint venture” between the Marine Corps and U.S. State Department that provides special operations and internal security at American Embassies and other locations abroad). With extended tours in Japan, Denmark and El Salvador, he has traveled to over 30 foreign countries giving him some unique and very well-rounded skill sets.  After college, he worked as a Stockbroker before following his childhood dreams of purchasing his own businesses in the yachting industry. As the owner of Coastal Yacht Services and Coastal Yacht Maintenance, Eric has really enjoyed going back to his “Yachting Roots”. He was asked to join “Team Marlow Marine” in 2011 and has become a First Class Yacht Broker with a client for life approach and exceptional knowledge in many areas. Having logged untold nautical miles aboard various yachts over the years working as a delivery Captain with his Yacht Service and Yacht Maintenance companies, Captain Eric has an exceptional understanding of the numerous differences between Yachts (ride characteristics, quality of construction and fit/finish just to name a few). Since 2011 he has been able to log thousands of nautical miles aboard many different Marlow Explorers (ranging in size from 49’-97 ‘) and therefore knows from firsthand experience, the additional features and benefits of a well thought out and quality built yacht. He is one of a select few Captains that operates Marlow Explorers for new boat off-loads, boat shows and during the client delivery and yacht orientation process. You will be hard pressed to find a better candidate to assist you with your Yachting needs.

♦ Lawrence Dahl

“Larry” is an avid, life-long boater who is pleased to be back in sunny Florida, and is especially enthusiastic about representing the highly-respected Marlow Yachts and Marlow Marine Sales, Inc.  

Originally from the Midwestern Lake of the Ozarks, then having spent 20 years navigating Florida’s Gulf Coast, and most recently in Upstate New York in the Fingerlakes and Lake George regions, he has come to realize that for him, happiness is found in, on or around the water.

After 18 years in sales and management within his family’s medical equipment company, and upon his Father’s retirement and business acquisition by their largest competitor, Larry was able to pursue a career doing what he enjoys most.  Fortunately, the stars aligned and while visiting his daughter at Cornell University on Cayuga Lake, he stumbled upon a new marina-based boat dealership that was seeking a sales manager for a ground-floor opportunity offering four new boat brands, plus used boats and brokerage services.  Through hard work and dedication to customer satisfaction, successful sales results followed.  Four years later, he then followed an opportunity to become the General Manager of a 270-slip member-owned yacht club, while also providing boat brokerage and club membership sales.  After a few years, it was evident that what he truly enjoyed was creating lasting relationships with like-minded boaters, while utilizing his background and experience in helping to guide their boat selection process to ensure their complete satisfaction and the most educated, safest and enjoyable cruising possible.

Please let Larry know what stage of boating you are in - whether you are new to the lifestyle, a well-practiced boater moving up to yachting, or even an old salt who is winding down – he is here to assist with your every need,  and provide experienced marine consultation while exceeding your expectations!
