Cole Watkins was born and raised in Winter Haven, FL where he spent his childhood boating and fishing on his hometown chain of lakes, Stuart, the Keys, Boca Grande, and the Bahamas. He knew early that he belonged in the boating world and dedicated my free time to learning everything he could about all aspects of the industry.
By the time Cole reached his early teens, he was an accomplished inshore and offshore fisherman and became the "go-to guy" for advice on anything to do with boating or fishing. Cole has been in the industry for over eight years, assisting in the search and purchase of boats for family and friends.
Cole graduated Cum Laude from Florida Gulf Coast University with a degree in Finance and Economics and is a member of Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society representing the top 10% of business students nationally. Following the completion of his degree, Cole joined Allied Marine as a Sales Executive.
Cole possesses an integrity that centers on doing the right thing, the right way. Understanding his clients’ needs, experience level, and lifestyle allow him to provide truly personal service based on a relationship, not just a sale. Cole’s love of all things boating, focus, drive and attention to detail make him a great asset to Allied Marine.
