Dean Chew started King Marine Outboard right out of school back in 1990 in the garage of his parents house. Between working for local dealers and doing business on the side Dean realized that he had a real talent for fixing engines along with a passion for racing boats in the APBA. Dean's success in racing was due in part to his knack for building fast motors and this talent is the cornerstone of King Marine Outboard's success.
Over the next couple of years Dean spent time honing his skills while building a client base. As his side business grew he purchased 3 acres of land in his hometown of Sewell, NJ and in 1995 King Marine Outboard officially opened for business.
King Marine Outboard has had many employees over the years but there is one man that became more than that - Tom Turk. Tom started here only a little while after we opened our doors and he has become not only our resident expert, but a true friend, and an integral part of the King Marine Outboard family.
Tom and Dean are the backbone of King Marine Outboard and together they have made this company what it is today. Between the two of them their knowledge base and expertise span several manufacturers. There is very rarely, if ever, a repair that they can't figure out. These two thrive on being able to fix issues that other service facilities can't.
The last addition to King Marine Outboard was Heather, who came to us a little over 7 years ago. She is the voice that you will hear when you call in or the face that you see when you stop by. Heather takes care of all the paperwork around here, tries to keep the guys in line, and generally fills in wherever necessary. She can help you look up parts for your motor and can answer general service questions. Heather has even been seen helping Dean haul boats from the shore area and on the tractor out back pulling boats out for customers!
Tom's dad - "Big Don" can also be seen around here helping the guys out and chatting up fishing stories with our customers. Tom and Dean wouldn't be able to get jobs completed without the help of this guy.
If you want to know more about King Marine Outboard feel free to stop in. We would be happy to take some time to answer any questions or to show you around.
Our family at King Marine Outboard is dedicated to giving your family a worry-free boating season. You can rest assured that your boat is in good hands here - we treat each unit as if it were our own.
