Richard Murbach was born in Clearwater, Florida, and raised on the water. Growing up in a family where boating was more than just an activity, he gained a love for the water at a young age. Richard quickly found his niche with fishing and began his offshore adventures as a teenager, soon feeling most comfortable offshore hunting for the big ones.
Richard received his degree from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and graduated with a degree in Marketing and Sales from the Culverhouse College of Commerce. After being land-locked in Alabama, he was eager to get back to Florida and back in touch with the water. One month after graduating, he was put in contact with Tom George, where he began his career in the boating industry, something that was a perfect fit and that he knew he would excel in.
Richard knew this was no small opportunity to let pass by; he already had the passion for boating, and now it was time to learn the business side of the industry. He is excited to continue to expand his knowledge of the industry while passing along his passion for boating and the water to all of his clients.
"It was an absolute pleasure dealing with everyone at TGYG. Jimmy Rogers listed my boat and we had a contract within 5 days, actually much faster than expected. This left me with little time to find my new vessel. I found myself torn between the 33 Boston Whaler Outrage and the 335 Everglades CC. Richard Murbach found me the perfect new boat (2019 Everglades) and both of these guys went out of their way to help us make a tough decision pretty easy. My wife and I tested both boats and agreed that the Everglades had a higher quality feel and more solid ride than the Whaler... but price as a bit of an issue. The Whalers were all 2018's (lots of unsold leftovers from last year) which gave them more flexibility on price. Richard and Jimmy not only went to Tom to make things happen, they also got Everglades involved as well. Took delivery of our new 335 Everglades last week! We are confident we made the right choice and know we got a great deal! On a side note, lifts are pretty scarce at the local marinas... they are letting us use the TGYG boat lift at Marker 1 until one becomes available in Dec. Now THAT'S going above and beyond!" - Ryan M.
"Richard went above and beyond to make sure he could accommodate our requests and we were happy with our purchase! Follow up has been great!" - Christine E.
