In 1988, after 21 years of managing grocery stores and after being laid off 4 times in 3 years, Tom Smith took a career time-out. He had always set his sights on owning his own business, but he didn't know exactly what it would be. With a personal project of making a new cover for the family boat, he bought a used commercial sewing machine for $600 and dove in. Fast forward. . .Tom's handiwork soon became the cover of choice for several area boat dealers. . .he leased retail space for his growing canvas business. . .put used boats out front on consignment. . .they sell. . .and so Colorado Boat Broker was born.
Since the dealership opened in 1990, changes have steadily been made to adapt to the ever-changing climate of the boating industry, economy, natural resources and customer needs and expectations. With our efforts to stay on top of the changing needs of our customers and the industry, we updated our name to better suit our business, as it is today, Colorado Boat Center. We've also made changes to our physical location since we purchased the property and continue to make improvements, within our economic means, for everyone's comfort and enjoyment.
We've never been afraid to change things when needed, but one thing our customers can always count on staying the same is our way of doing business. Our business philosophy has been the foundation for everything we do. We believe in offering quality products and service at reasonable prices, while treating others in the same manner that we ourselves want to be treated. Our staff of dedicated professionals works with the same philosophy while offering our customers expertise in each of their departments. Also, the manufacturers and products that we carry have been chosen because they reflect the same philosophy. Take a look at the brands we choose to offer to our customers. They are some of the finest and most highly respected in the industry.
Colorado Boat Center has continued to grow steadily in Colorado and the surrounding states with a reputation for friendly customer service, large selections and no haggle - no hassle pricing. It is because of our customers' feedback that we have been able to continue to grow. We listen to our customers, change what we can improve on and make sure that we keep doing the things that we do well. We sincerely value our customers and their opinions. . .after all; they are part of our boating family!
