About Us: Marine Air Conditioning, Boat Water Maker, Marine Refrigeration, and More

How Beard Marine Started

40 + years of service to the marine industry.

Larry Beard and his Dad, Dean, started with a vision and determination to open Beard Marine A/C and Refrigeration in February 1981. A few years later, Scott joined the organization as a Helper and then, in 2005, came back as a Technician and later assumed other roles with more responsibility, reaching the General Manager position that he holds today.
Beard Marine could not have grown without the hard work and support of the following dedicated people:
In Ft. Lauderdale: Arnie Correia, Cecilia Anchelia, David Perez, Mike McLinskey, Mark Ardo. In Palm Beach: Joe Rosenberg, Kathy Gall, Joseph McGuire. In Savannah: Jake Schlosser.
Along with all of our amazing staff, who continues to support and deliver each and every day with outstanding dedication and customer service.
