Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Tommy’s Boats will celebrate the opening of its new location in Knoxville, Tennessee, during a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration on Saturday, October 28. The new 18,000-square-foot facility, which houses a boat showroom, a Wake and Surf Shop, sales offices and a 12-bay service department, is situated on 6.9 acres with highway frontage and is located at 11470 Outlet Drive, a few miles from their previous location.
During the daylong celebration, leaders from Tommy’s Boats, the Town of Farragut, the Tennessee legislature, OC Construction, and the local community will gather to celebrate Tommy’s commitment to providing the Knoxville community with exceptional lake life experiences.
