Connecting The Region to Tennessee Waterways
Located at mile marker 626.8 on Fort Loudoun Lake, Travis Marine is Knoxville’s oldest on-water sales and service boat dealership. “When our technicians need to diagnose a problem or confirm their repairs, it’s going to get water-tested on the lake,” Curmi said.
The dealership specializes in selling Cobalt Boats and Premier Pontoons. “The first move I made 30 years ago was to bring in the Cobalt brand; they are high-end family runabouts of exceptional quality and performance. Premier Pontoons is one of the oldest pontoon builders in the country, and they too are dedicated to a quality build and unique performance.”
“Today’s boats are as modern and as sophisticated as any automobile, and just as reliable,” he said. Regardless, prospective buyers need to decide what they’re looking for in terms of a watercraft: a small runabout, one for surfing and wakeboarding, a relaxing pontoon or a small personal watercraft. Another consideration, said Matt Curmi, Travis Marine’s sales manager, is what happens after the sale. “We hear over and over from customers that the biggest thing they didn’t take into account when they bought their first boat was service after the sale. You want to feel good about the dealer being able to take care of you.”
