Tommy Phillips, founder and namesake of the Tommy’s brand was on hand, catching up with old friends and making new friends. He is still on board as a consultant and is thrilled to be a part of the team assembled by the owner, Matt Borisch. “Matt took the vision I had and put it on steroids,” Tommy said. “And it’s just so cool to see all these families and all this collective energy coming together in Clearwater. This is an untapped territory, and there are so many cars driving by every day. So by carrying the best brands in the industry and assembling the best team, they are going to do great things. We’ve seen what they’ve done in Colorado and Michigan and now is the chance to spread our activities all over Florida.”

Tommy also commented on his original vision and how it remains similar today, “Matt and I agree that it’s all about relationships for life. When someone comes into the shop, they are welcomed into our family. They’re not a ‘customer.’ We bring people in, treat them like family, stay in touch with them, handle any problems and inspire the entire family to recreate together behind the boat, because we think it’s the best lifestyle in the world.”

Tommy added, “I feel the energy here and there is a community being built. We are in the perfect place at the perfect time and the new and improved SRP (Salt Resistance Performance) on the boats is something that customers will really appreciate."
