DAVID SIKES/CALLER-TIMES Bill Holmes Sr. ..., 6 Nov 2014 [cached]
DAVID SIKES/CALLER-TIMES Bill Holmes Sr. is now chairman of the board of Gulf Coast Marine, while son Billy Holmes Jr. is president and general manager. The business has operated since 1954.
Bill Holmes Sr., center, still comes to the shop, while Billy Holmes Jr. is president and general manager of the business.
Billy Holmes Jr. worked summers and after school before becoming fully dedicated to Gulf Coast Marine when the dealership was located on South Port Avenue.
That their son, Billy Holmes Jr., center, soon after the business relocated to the Flour Bluff location.
Billy Holmes Jr. was born in 1958, after which Holmes' bride began working full-time at the family business.
They also wanted to sail, so Holmes began selling sail boats and sailing beyond the Gulf of Mexico in his own. Gulf Coast started with the smaller starfish and sunfish models, which evolved into Olympic class vessels and racing cruisers such as Columbia, Ranger, Cal, Pearson, Morgan and Hunter. Sail boats gave way to Sea-Doo vessels and personal watercraft in the 1980s.
The business grew faster than expected, forcing the family to expand the Port Avenue facility, forcing salesmen to cross two streets to access the dealership's vast inventory. By now, Billy Holmes Jr. was fully dedicated to the family business.
Billy Holmes Jr., who had been working summers and after school with his dad since 1982, became president and general manager of the company in 2012.
