Chase Scharnek

New Product Specialist

Chase was born and raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He was first introduced to boats when he was just 2-months old. This was when his Papa would take him to M-W Marine every Friday to go sit on Ranger fishing boats and talk with his friends that worked there. He grew up fishing and sandbar hopping on the Mississippi River every summer, this is where he fell in love with the water and gained his passion for boating culture. Other than boating, Chase’s passions include baseball, snowboarding, and spending time with friends and family. He attended Madison College and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where he completed his degree in Communications. During those years he played baseball, the highlight of his career was his junior year when his Madison team made it, and placed fourth at the College World Series.

Upon graduation, he knew that he wanted to get into sales but he wasn’t sure what he wanted to sell. After much consideration, job offers, and interviews, he still felt there was something out there that he would fully and honestly enjoy. That is when he sat down with his Dad to set his goals, figure out what he really wanted, and where he wanted to be in life. At that moment, his Dad said to him, “Why don’t you move to Florida and sell boats.” At that point, Chase could not agree more with his father that selling boats would be the thing to make him feel fulfilled. After doing some research, finding Tom George Yacht Group, and meeting the people that worked here, he could not feel more at home. He knew that this is what he wanted to do and where he was meant to be. Chase ultimately received a job offer, packed his truck, and drove down three weeks later!
