Our Story


Established in 1962, Bunch Marine is a family owned and operated boat dealership in Harriman, Tennessee. We still use the same core values that we began with to operate at a high level of integrity and treat our customers as we would want to be treated. Being family owned, we operate totally unlike the big box corporate stores in that we have built relationships with families that transcend several generations. Our customers know that they can rely on us. They are our best advocates in the marketplace and have helped our company grow to become #1 in East Tennessee in the marine business. Our customers have also helped us to expand our business from our location just outside of Knoxville to across the entire United States and into other countries.


With over 145 years of combined experience dedicated to the marine industry, we offer a highly trained staff that knows what it takes to provide first class customer service to our customers. We, unlike a lot of our competitors are 100% focused on the boat industry. We do not sell RV’s, campers, ATV's, motorcycles or anything else. It is our belief that to be great at anything you must place your entire focus on one thing, and then work and train hard to be the best at what you do.


The founder of Bunch Marine, Roy Bunch, had certain beliefs when it came to business and service to his customers. He instilled those beliefs, and they are still the standard when it comes to service here today. Take care of your customers that have provided you with their hard earned money and have entrusted you to be there to take care of the products they purchased. If you take care of them better than your competitors, they will help you grow your business. Always do what you tell your customers you will do because your integrity is hard to gain but is easy to lose. Remember that no one is perfect, and when you make a mistake be sure to make it right. Training is never ending and DO NOT forget that.

With his beliefs and our family’s reputation, we have continually pushed to become the best at customer service. Bunch Marine has been awarded the Mercury CSI award for the last 9 years straight and working very hard on 2017.  This isn't something that is easily earned and not handed out to every dealer.


Bunch Marine has partnered with the leading brands in the boating industry to offer our customers a premium and diverse lineup that we are proud to represent. For our customers that are looking to spend their time on the water fishing, we offer Ranger, Triton, Nitro, and Tracker boats.
