The History behind Lighthouse Marine
Lighthouse Marine Inc. was established in November 1988. Wally’s Marine had previously been at this location for almost 15 years. We started small and have grown into a business serving more than 3,000 customers. Lighthouse Marine is owned and operated by the partnership of Rich and Treva Swanson and Mike and Mary Averill, all living in the Gig Harbor area.
Rich and Mike have been in the marine repair business for more than 45 years. Rich began his career at Tiderunner Boats in Gig Harbor and Mike started at Riverside Boat in California. Both bring to the company a wealth of knowledge and experience.
In addition to Mike and Rich, we have 5 marine mechanics and 3 customer service technicians. We receive factory training each year to update our knowledge and skills on the current products. We strive throughout the years to continually update and improve our facility, knowledge, tools and our products. We invite you to call or come by any time. We are here to service you.
We’re committed to boat and engine repair and service and to serving you with quality and value.
Our mechanics are highly skilled and have years of experience. Most of all: they love boats and care about yours. Whether it’s our quick, quality, friendly service or the honesty and value we bring to every interaction, our customers love us.
Get to know our experienced mechanics. They’ve got tools, skills, and a desire to help. Come see why no shop is as quick, qualified, or convenient as we are.
