Established in 1947.
Post-war Orlando, like every other city in America, was struggling to regroup after the wartime years. The Hagood Brothers were ready to begin their business, and literally built the business from the ground up, starting with the laying of the blocks, but more importantly the building of friendships and establishing the reputation of service to their customers.
Tommy Hagood’s name became synonymous with speed and Tommy captured both state and national championships in multiple hydroplane classes. Through racing Mercury engines, Tommy formed a close personal relationship with Karl Kiekhaefer who was the founder of Mercury Outboards. Hagood Brothers worked with the research and development branch of Mercury engines and kept Mercury at the pinnacle of racing and performance.
Michael Hagood, Tommy’s son now operates Hagood Brothers Marine. Michael, who along with his capable staff, also carries on the tradition of service and attention to the customer.
