Tonys Marine Service

Tonys Marine Service (TMS) was established in 1990 by Tony Hodges after spending several years working at Coleraine Boat Centre, situated in the heart of Coleraine on the River Bann. Tony started working at Coleraine Boat Centre in 1979 aged 16 and soon became an experience mechanic and water sports enthusiast. After a number of years he began to lease the workshop and run it independently from the rest of the Boat Yard.

Tony strived being self-employed and expanded his business by purchasing himself a premises just outside the town in 1992. It would be on this same site that TMS would stay until today after many years of success and development.

Tony started off working by himself at his new workshop premises and soon earned a good reputation and a large customer base. He employed a second mechanic and business started to boom, thanks to the growing interest in the leisure industry and boating in Northern Ireland.
