Sherbert and Linda VanMeter owners and manager of Renegade Marine have been in business in the area since 1975. Sherbert and Linda started Leitchfield Exterminating; at the time it was a one man show. Leitchfield Exterminating turned into one of the largest Pest Control companies in the area and is still owned by Sherbert and Linda.
In 1992 Sherbert and Linda acquired a Bass Fishing Tournament with approximately 70 members at the time and within a few years had grown into The Premier Tournament circuit in the area with more than 1100 members.
With the lack of support from local boat dealerships the ideal of a boat dealership was born. In the fall of 2004 Renegade Marine was started in a small 4,000 square foot building with approximately $150,000 in inventory. Thru customer loyalty and the grace of God Renegade Marine has grown into a thriving business boasting the best service department in the area and the largest inventory which is in excess of 6 million dollars at peak season.
Don’t let our success fool you; we have a big city inventory with a small town atmosphere. Sherbert and Linda still do business the old fashioned way, on a handshake!
We believe that treating people fair and trusting a person’s word is the secret to our success. Stop in see us anytime; we are always available to talk with you!
