Swords Marine Service was started by Bob in 2011, as a, strictly mobile service. As business grew, the need for a shop was quickly discovered. Bob quickly acquired a small shop space in historic Gloucester Courthouse, and his son Bobby began working for him on his days off, from his full time job.

In early 2013 Swords Marine saw the need to expand again and moved to its current location in the Cobbs Creek area of Mathews, VA.  This location includes a 1,200 sq/ft show and parts room and a 2,400 sq.ft 3 bay shop. Even with the growth in shop size and employees we still hold to our roots and retain the ability to service at our customers location.
