Welcome to the World of Total Marine

Total Marine is a family owned and operated business started by the late John Caruso in 1971. John, assisted by his son, Thomas, successfully grew their operations serving the greater New York, New Jersey and New England boating regions. In 2010 they would partner with industry veteran Jim Renfrow to expand operations in Maryland and Florida. The expansion allowed Total Marine to better serve customers in the most popular east coast boating destinations, also assuring that seasonal boaters could be served no matter where they cruise along the Atlantic Coast. John Caruso instilled an unwavering commitment to customer service in the organization, which is the cornerstone to the success of the business today. We welcome the opportunity to assist you and your family in your boating adventure!
