Meet Our Team

Owner:  Eric Peterson is a certified Honda technician, has completed Spader Marine Management School, and has a BS in Chemical Engineering from UC Santa Barbara.  He worked as an engineer for several private and government entities before opening Specialty Marine in 2002.  Eric soon realized that in order to stand out from other dealers, he had to not only repair boats correctly, but also provide a uniquely positive customer service.  Eric prides himself in running a clean and professional shop, providing quality products, offering a no-pressure approach to sales, and helping customers make informed decisions regarding repairs on their boat.  Eric has enjoyed fishing the offshore waters of the Central Coast for over 25 years.
Service Manager:  Michael Kaufman  has over 16 years experience working on marine engines.  Michael has repowered dozens of boats with both inboard and outboard engines, and has extensive experience in marine electrical systems, including installing chart plotters, radars, stereos, fish finders, and auto pilots.  Michael is our "go to" man for all types of generator repairs.  Michael enjoys taking his family wakeboarding in the summer and dirt bike riding in the winter.
Service Technician:  Oren Hemsworth has over 20 years experience working on marine engines.  He is a graduate of UTI and is a factory trained in Mercruiser I/O, Mercury and Honda Outboard repair.  Oren has extensive experience in rebuilding Mercruiser, OMC and Volvo engines and sterndrives, and is excellent at diagnosing and repairing all types of marine engines, including two and four stroke outboards, inboards and even diesels.  You won't find a more knowledgable marine technician anywhere!  Oren served in the US Coast Guard as a pilot and navigator.  Oren is an avid fisherman and enjoys racing RC boats.
Service Technician:  Ron Panter graduated from Ventura Collage in 1977, majoring in Industrial Arts. He began his career in the marine industry as a technician at Granite Bay Marine, near Sacramento, in 1980.
