Meet the Owner

Tom Papesh, owner of York Road Marine, has been in the marine business for more than 35 years. He moved from Ohio to St. Petersburg, Florida in his early 20s and quickly realized that boating and the enjoyment it brought was an integral part of his new home. Tom started his own mobile marine repair business and learned that using quality products and not cutting corners resulted in satisfied customers.

Tom moved from the repair side of the business into a sales position at Mastry Engine Center, the largest distributor of Yanmar diesel engines in the southeastern United States. During his 15 years at Mastry, Tom saw the importance of offering a superior product and superior service—and his marine business philosophy was born. In 1999, Tom and his wife Misty along with their son Brent, moved to Pine Island and into the life of a business owner.

Tom’s reputation for honesty and thoroughness keeps customers returning to York Road Marine year after year.
