Jim Rard

President/Owner
Seattle/Anacortes

Jim left a background in aircraft maintenance and engineering to found Marine Servicenter in 1977. His leadership and hands-on participation have been key factors in the steady growth of the company. His design skills have helped make Marine Servicenter the area's leader in custom systems. Jim holds a masters license with the US Coast Guard, is involved in local club racing, and served on the board of both the Northwest Marine Trade Association and the Northwest Yacht Brokers’ Association.
Jim and Jeanna and their two daughters, Molly and Jessie, recently completed a two-year cruise on their Jeanneau 49 from Anacortes to Australia and back. See highlights of their trip at www.rubyslippers49.com.
Since that time, Jim has used RUBY SLIPPERS to lead a flotilla of boaters up the inside passage to Alaska. He will be leading his third group in the summer of 2013. Check it out on Facebook - SAIL ALASKA.
