  • Boat/Marine Dealership


For the past 22 years, Richards has brought his expertise and professionalism to the Utah boating community. In 1983, while attending Brigham Young University, Richards began searching for the one thing that could bring happiness to his life. One weekend, Richards and his wife took the family boat out on the water for a day of fun on one of Utah's lakes. Little did he know that day would lead him to his life’s work and passion. Richards landed his first job in the industry at a marina being built off of Utah Lake and later began selling Cobalt boats for a living. In the fall of 1992, Richards was given the opportunity to be the Salt Lake City dealer for the Cobalt line. Since that day, Richards has worked his way up the food chain, eventually becoming one of the largest volume dealers in the state. Recently Richards opened up a brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Draper. The new facility has a bigger showroom, 24-hour security with outdoor storage and the same great customer service Utahans have grown accustomed to.
