Is There Anything Better than Finding Freedom on the Water?

Published: Monday, September 21, 2020

Terry's Marine Service became an established business on October 6, 2015, when a young marine technician decided to turn his passion for all things boating into a business. On the beautiful shores of Lake Erie, in Marblehead, Ohio, Josh Terry began giving back to the industry he loves.

A lifelong resident of Ottawa County, Josh grew up on Lake Erie, finding a love for boating at a young age and using it as fuel for an early career as a marine technician. With over 12 years of experience working on boats, he has had extensive training and earned many certifications, passing on his knowledge to his capable staff at Terry’s Marine Service. By word of mouth, from one satisfied customer to another, the business has grown as a full marine repair facility, offering a wide range of services including inside heated and outside boat storage, new and used boat sales, engine maintenance, new Suzuki engine sales, and much more.

With a young family at home, Josh ensures that his business is also family-oriented. Terry’s Marine Service offers year-round and mobile services so their customers can receive attention on their time. Technicians will travel to customer docks to perform boat maintenance such as oil changes, battery services, power issues, issues with electronics, and much more. Because of the pandemic, some parts have become low in stock or back-ordered but, in response, the company’s actions show the superior level of customer service they provide. Terry’s has paid more for parts needed or for expedited shipping, and has refused to pass on those costs to their customers, proving that they truly care about the work they are doing and the satisfaction of their customers.

Terry’s Marine Service is proud to give their clientele a little normalcy in their lives through boating and works diligently to keep customers on the water enjoying every moment possible. Through feedback and Josh’s leadership, the company is continually looking for better ways to provide new services and boating possibilities, always with the goal to help other boaters find their happy place on the water. The only way to truly provide that is to ensure that every boat is safe, reliable, and healthy overall.

Terry’s Marine Service is your new go-to for all things boating and they would love to hear from you. Visit, find them on Facebook, or call the office at 419-357-5891.
