Brad Lanier has been in the boating industry since January 2000. He is a native of Bulloch county and been an avid outdoorsman most of his life. Brad’s ties to southeast Georgia run deep, loving our coastal waters and wonderful river swamps, where you find him enjoying family time boating and fishing. He has made many lifetime memories fishing with his father and close friends which now include his two young boys that already have the same passion for boating and fishing.

Born in Bulloch Co. Ga., Jonathan was blessed to grow up in a sportsman’s paradise. Three things mattered growing up: baseball, hunting and fishing. This background led in to his professional life. He supported his college years as a guide at a shooting preserve, which piqued his interest in instruction. He has provided shot gunning tips, dog handling and fishing advice to many. Growing up fishing off of the beaches of Georgia’s Golden Isles provided the impetus and formation of one of Jonathan’s early goals: boat ownership. As soon as he finished at Georgia Southern University and got his first “real” job he bought his first boat at Custom Marine; a ’96 180 CC Sea Pro. Many boats and countless spring tides later, Jonathan still plies the waters of Coastal Georgia as often as he can. His high school sweetheart, Kim shares his love of the boating lifestyle and has provided him with two great kids: Jack (9) and Jill (13). Jonathan’s knack for instruction comes in handy raising these two busy children. Jonathan first began his affiliation with Custom Marine in 1999 and continues there to this day full time. Jonathan often volunteers his time at many church functions and is also involved in youth athletics including baseball and football. He is dedicated to treating his customers as he would like to be treated. Honesty, respect for one’s time and true appreciation for one’s business are his guiding principles while guiding a client to their boating lifestyle.
