Paul Turner started PT Marine with the goal of creating a boat maintenance and repair shop that provides consistent, top-notch service. He moved to the Ocean City area in 1996 and, one year later, started in the marine business bottom painting boats. He quickly moved up to hauling and launching and it wasn't long before he became a mechanics apprentice.
Over the next 13 years Paul worked at several boat dealers, learning everything from the basics to advanced repairs, during which he became a Yamaha Certified Technician. At his final place of employment, he learned more about the business side of the boat industry. Paul launched PT Marine in 2010 with a small shop in West Ocean City. Several years later, he purchased the current Ocean Pines location and remodeled the property to effectively service his customers. With his growing service department, Paul saw a need for a quality boat line powered by Yamaha Outboards, and PT Marine now sells Jones Brother Marine and Alweld Boats.
