MYCO Trailers, a world leader in the custom boat trailer industry for 45 years, will be led by a new generation.
As he prepares to retire, Bill Tweedie—a previous partner and the force behind MYCO’s sales and marketing for more than 35 years—has named two key team members responsible for taking MYCO Trailers into the future, Ronnie Moran and Jon Smiley. Tweedie will continue to be involved with the company as a consultant.
Ronnie Moran, who has 14 years with MYCO, is now vice president of sales and corporate office manager. She handles all internal sales and is the voice most customers hear when requesting a quote, ordering or taking delivery of their trailer, dry rack cradle or boat lift cradle. With a background in the banking industry, Moran’s organizational skills and attention to detail help keep the office and manufacturing facility running smoothly with product delivery and logistics in check.
With more than 20 years of experience in marine product sales and marina management, Jon Smiley has joined the sales team, and will be heading up business development and outside sales. Most recently, Smiley was Harbour Master at the Sanibel Harbour Yacht Club in Fort Myers, FL. The marina’s storage facility faced challenges caring for boats with stepped hull configurations until the implementation of MYCO’s dry rack cradles which reduced damage claims by nearly 100 percent, according to Smiley. He lives in Fort Myers with his wife, Monica, and their two sons. His hobbies include following offshore boat racing and auto endurance racing, shooting and being on the water.
MYCO builds trailers for all types of boats and is a favorite among offshore racing teams, poker run teams, tournament and sport fishing teams. Their reputation for performance and reliability along with their commitment to quality and service keeps MYCO in the forefront of the trailer industry. They also provide trailers for government agencies including the United States Coast Guard, United States Customs, Marine Response, Naval Special Warfare and Navy Seals.
Since 1974, MYCO Trailers has designed, engineered and manufactured the best towing and most reliable trailers in the industry. Every frame is fully-welded, including cross-members and bunk supports. Built to the exact specifications of each boat, the hull bunks are paired to provide even support, matching the shape and contours of the hull for a precision fit and self-centering while loading. The unique “Y” style bow stop catches the boat during retrieval and provides additional support to the forward hull while trailering. Exclusive details, like patented positive pressure air-tight hubs, prevent water and contaminants from entering wheel hubs and visual indicators allowing for simple inspection of the seals and bearings.
