Eric was raised in the small town of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and spent summers as a teenager on the New Jersey coast. He developed an appreciation and passion for boating after cruising the intercoastal and fishing around Cape May with his father's friends. Some of his best childhood memories include catching bass and trout with family and friends around rivers, lakes, and ponds in Chester County. As he got older, sports and academics took priority when baseball tournaments began to take over his weekends and his focus shifted on completing his Business Degree from Temple University in Philadelphia. However, he never lost his passion for being close to the water.
When he and his father decided a change in scenery was necessary after completing his Bachelor's in Business Management, they moved down to Clearwater, Florida. After multiple jobs in various industries, he did not feel fulfilled with his career thus far. Eric decided it was time to search for a job that aligned with what he was passionate about, boating. After seeing a new construction site very close to home where the new Tom George Yacht Group showroom store would eventually be completed, he was blessed with the opportunity to accept a sales position and dove into the marine industry head first.
"Great buying experience. Great EdgeWater boat. Great service. 5-star plus rating for Tom George Yacht Group (TGYG)!!
I purchased my EdgeWater, center-console boat from Eric at TGYG in March of 2019. Eric made the buying experience better than any other boat purchase, or car for that matter, I have had over the last 40 years. I truly felt that Eric was as dedicated to me, the buyer, as he was to TGYG as their sales person. He was extremely knowledgeable answering all of my questions prior to purchase, toured me in the boat on the water to demo it, delivered it and spent time educating me on all of the features of this boat. His level of customer service is exceptional. He is quick to respond to my questions since purchase and continues to be my "go to" guy for all things Florida boating. Thanks, Eric.
Jay, their Service Manager, has been similarly helpful to me and my needs. Whether that is picking up and delivering my boat according to my schedule and service need, explaining service requirements and lending a plethora of helpful hints to keep us boating safely and confidently on the waters around Sarasota.
This was a great, first experience with TGYG but it will not be my last. Well done!! If you are looking to buy what they sell, do not hesitate to reach out to TGYG."
