Abbey grew up in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, where as a standard you spend your summers boating while soaking up the sun with friends and family. Nine years ago, she trekked across the country to Seattle, Washington to finish up her college education and hasn't looked back since. Missing some sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest, her new favorite places to boat quickly became Lake Chelan and the Columbia River in Eastern Washington, spending many summers there with good friends, and of course a few Malibu boats. You can find Abbey outdoors all over the PNW whether it be snowboarding or hiking a mountain pass, golfing in the sun, or paddle boarding out in the Puget Sound. Abbey's professional experience has always been focused on providing high-end customer service, and she has an absolute passion for meeting and exceeding customer's expectations. Most importantly, she loves creating a relaxed environment for customers as they search for the perfect boat, and building lasting relationships with them for years to come.
Elizabeth grew up on the shores of Lake Sammamish. Her boating skills were put to the test when she and her sister completed the 6,000 mile Great Loop in a 16' open-hull aluminum skiff. Her three month “road trip” via the waterways was a steep learning curve and nothing short of an adventure. Following a four year stint at the Duroboat factory, Elizabeth made the jump to Seattle Boat Company! Part of the sales team for 5 years now, Elizabeth has worked with families across the Puget Sound and Eastern WA. Aboard or dockside, she’s a reliable resource and ready to help –just a text or a phone call away!
Brian is a fourth generation Everett-onian. His family ancestry traces back to the commercial fishing community that helped establish the city in the 1890’s. Needless to say his childhood memories included salmon fishing and crabbing in Possession Sound. His early love of the water developed into a watersports obsession that began behind a Malibu Boat on a Connelly slalom ski. Annual family houseboat trips to Lake Shasta furthered his fascination by introducing him to the world of wakeboarding, air-chairing, and surfing. After graduating with a marketing degree from Washington State University (Go Cougs!), he turned his adoration for recreation into a career. Sales positions at Stevens Pass, Crystal Mountain, Connelly Skis and now Seattle Boat Company have driven his passion for work. Brian and his wife Laila live in Everett and enjoy spending their time on the Columbia River at Crescent Bar.

Tanner is from Maltby, Washington (yes, he does love cinnamon rolls!). While hockey is a favorite pastime; Tanner prefers his water unfrozen in the form of lakes. His boating memories run deep with hours spent aboard and behind the family boat on Stevens and Alta and his college summers spent working on a tug boat. Tanner has a hunger for watersports which makes him an excellent resource for anything wake or surf related - he has even invested his time in designing programs for boating safety and watersports lessons!

Tanner strives to bring that same happiness and good memories to other families’ that boating has brought him.
