“Focusing on the FUN has always been our primary goal. We help our customers experience all the joy only boating can provide,” said founder and president, Jim Sabia.
Jim’s love for boating began at a very young age. Growing up on Long Island, NY, he and his family enjoyed the fun of boating, fishing and camping all over the country. The dealerships you see today are a result of a lifelong dream, and many years of hard work. Having grown up around boats Jim decided early on that his love for boating and the outdoors would become his career and eventually, a major part of his life. “Fishing trips, family fun all over the USA, we really did it all. We had great fun, made friends and lots of great memories I will never forget.” says Sabia.
After his graduation from Florida Institute of Technology with an engineering degree, Jim began researching the recreational boating marketplace and found a real family oriented dealership offering old fashioned great service was missing from Florida and specifically the Treasure and Space Coasts. With that insight he created his vision for Top Notch Marine and with his father’s help and guidance, Top Notch Marine was born.
Sabia’s keen eye for ever changing market trends, and his close attention to evolving technologies, has allowed him to create multiple successful dealerships, both brick & mortar and virtual, serving worldwide customers and offering everything from new and used boats, parts, service, boat trailers, consignments and more. In 2007 Top Notch opened its second location in Melbourne, FL. He also launched BoatTrailerOutlet.com in 2009 and maintains a dedicated staff just to keep up with online demand.
Their two locations total over 12 acres and feature full service with insurance claim and warranty service centers, boat showrooms and parts and accessory shops that carry everything you could ever need or want for your boat. We also have the staff to help you with any do-it-yourself project on your boat!
Now, after 35+ years and thousands of boats, Jim’s vision and business model has not only been embraced by the public, but copied by competitors. “Imitation surely is the sincerest form of flattery” says Jim “but if they were doing it right, they’d be as successful as we are!”
As the busiest independent dealer in south Florida, and a leading dealer for each of its boat lines, clearly nobody does boating better. At Top Notch Marine we have boating covered from web to water and when our customers want to know about us… we’re happy to brag about what we do!
