About Amzim Marine
My love for boating started out at an early age growing up in a family that loved to fish and spend a tremendous amount of time on the water in my native country of Zimbabwe. My family and I were involved in, and thoroughly enjoyed the fun we had boating, fishing, and water skiing.
Due to the economic turmoil in our country, I decided it was better for my family's future to start emigrating from Zimbabwe and moving to a first world country. My children, at the time, were very young and I saw no future for them in Zimbabwe.
Having been of a mechanical mind and nature, and being a part of a family with a love for the marine industry, I decided that Florida was the place where I could see my family settling. Traveling to Florida in the past, I could see the marine industry was one of the largest in Florida.
I then chose to attend the American Marine Institute in Daytona Beach (International School for Inboard/Outboard/Gas/Diesel Technicians) where I received training and technical knowledge. I graduated in the end of 2000 with accredited honors. I then went to work for WR Marine Corporation dba Walkers Marine on Marco Island and continued to do so until April 2011. These were some of the best years of my career and I will always be grateful for them.
I finally decided to open my own business, Amzim Marine Services, LLC. in August 2012. With four staff members and Certifications for MerCruiser, Volvo, Cummins, and CAT engines, we are well prepared and equipped to service and repair your boat whether it be in our shop, or at your dock!
