In January of 1992, Phil became sole owner of Oak Hill Marina. The company at the time was quite small, selling and servicing a handful of jet skis and boats and also operating a very busy boat and jet ski rental operation. Geared up for his 2nd year, in 1993, Phil had aspirations of a big boating season full of growth. Unfortunately we all remember 1993 as the “summer of the flood.”
Ambition, hard work, perseverance, and a great staff that has grown year after year are what have made Oak Hill Marina what it is today. The dealership has grown from a little, remodeled convenience store/restaurant along the highway into a state-of-the-art marina that has received industry wide recognition. Besides its beautiful showroom, Oak Hill Marina also has 9 off-site storage facilities, an offsite rigging shop, the best of the best employees, and a great customer base.
The one time dream is still very much alive at Oak Hill Marina and is currently shared by all employees. The enjoyment of coming to work is still strong. Providing fun and entertainment for those who work so hard to achieve it is what makes being in the marine business rewarding. As always, our motto and goal is to help you obtain the boating dream and maintain the boating lifestyle.
