My name is Davis Gillenwater.
At the early age of 6 I began boating and growing up on the water with my family. They afforded me the opportunity to experience a life on the water that developed into a passion and life style. Many years in the building and construction business allowed me to move on to bigger water and with bigger water came bigger boats. That brought my passion and desire for boating to whole new level.
I got involved in the boat and yacht brokerage business as an independent sales representative in the area where I boated on the TN River. After a few successful sales years I partnered with another independent representative within the company and together we purchased the business. The results have far exceeded expectations in sales and growth on a recurring annual basis. Our firm is the oldest and longest standing brokerage in our area.
I am a licensed USCG Merchant Mariner 100 T Master with Towing Assist Endorsement. I provide backup Captain and piloting services for our local Boat US towing and recovery service. I have several years Captain service on 149 passenger commercial paddle wheeler that included dinner cruises, educational tours, entertainment and sightseeing tours. I have thousands of miles over the water delivery and ferrying a variety of vessels from 25’ to 100’. My passion for boating continues daily and the experience is second to none. I have a wonderful wife that shares with enthusiasm that passion and our life on the water.
