Steve Baum, Vice Chairman

Steve Baum started his career in the marine industry in 1981 right out of high school when he took a job at Cable Marine, a full-service boat yard. He worked his way up from the bottom, starting as a bottom painter and doing whatever else was asked of him in the boat yard, learning about boats on the job, while attending college at night. He eventually became the parts department manager at Cable Marine's west yard. In 1989 he was asked to move to a sister company called D.S. Hull Company Inc. d/b/a Boat Owners Warehouse as general manager. In 1996 he was part of a group of employees that purchased D.S. Hull Company and Boat Owners Warehouse, at which time he became President/CEO. Boat Owners Warehouse currently operates three stores in South Florida, and is the largest independent marine parts dealer in the South Florida region. BOW stores range in size from 8,500–12,000 square feet, with over 20,000 SKU's in stock. Steve is also President/CEO of Yacht Equipment & Parts, a dockside service company that does repairs and installations of marine systems and equipment, serving the boating community in South Florida for 15 years. Steve has been on the board of the MRAA since 2002 and is a past board member of the Marine Industry Association of South Florida. He currently sits on the boat show committee for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
