Ryan was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida. He began spending time on his family's boat long before he could walk. As he grew up he would make trips with his family to the Keys every year on a variety of boats including Bertrams, Egg Harbors and Hatteras. He learned how to drive the tender when he was 8 years old and learned seamanship and navigation skills. At 15 he got his first center console boat which he still has and uses today for various water sports and fishing.
Prior to joining the TGYG Team, Ryan worked in retail sales at Best Buy and Sears rising to a store manager position. However boating has always been his passion and when the opportunity arose to become part of the TGYG Team, Ryan jumped at the chance. Customer service and satisfaction has always been a driving force in Ryan's work ethic and he strives to make the boat buying experience a positive and rewarding experience for each of his clients.
Ryan enjoys martial arts training, scuba diving, motorcycles and of course most of all, any boating related activity. He is energetic and enjoys catering to his clients' boating needs.
"I purchased a new Everglades 243 from TGYG about 8 months ago. The entire process was a pleasure. From sales to service and the finance dept... they answered every question and treated us like we were special even though they sell much bigger boats to other clients. I still get regular text from Ryan Allen, my sales rep, just checking in to see how we're enjoying the boat and if I need anything. These guys know customer service!"
