Russell Marine Transport LLC was started from a passion for boats. I've been an avid boater for nearly my entire life. I served in the US Navy from 1993-2001 deploying all over the world. From a young age, I knew that being on boats and on the water I was able to find complete comfort. I've owned many boats throughout my life and currently have our beloved 1984 Chris Craft 381 Catalina along with a dinghy and a Sport Nautique.
My background is in business having come from the media industry and working in radio and digital advertising for nearly two decades. From there I needed a change and with the encouragement of friends and family, I left Corporate America and went to work for Marine Max in Dallas, TX. It wasn't long after that when my local marina recruited me to run their defunct Service Center. During that time, I decided it was time to break out and follow my dream of having a Premier Boat/Yacht Transport Company. Taking my background of business, passion for boats and childhood dream of driving a big rig, Russell Marine Transport LLC was launched.
I started moving boats locally with my 1-Ton dually truck and have evolved into having five specially equipped semi-tractors and stretch tri-axle low boy trailers. My equipment is designed and built for the best possible hauling of boats and large yachts. I can haul upwards of 100,000 lbs on my wide-body, stretch trailer and everything in between on any one of my other four specialty boat-transport trailers. They are simply the best available in the business.
My goal and commitment to customers is to provide the best service and experience possible when moving their boat/yacht. I maintain continuous communication and provide pictures and updates throughout the journey.
