Eric Fiori, owner of Bayside Jet Drive started his water sport career by riding jet skis and developing a love for the sport. Being a young man he didn’t have much money to repair his jet skis so because of the need he learned to service and work on them himself. Graduating from high school and moving on to college during the summer breaks Eric would spent them in Ocean City, MD working and repairing PWC’s and other watercraft. Always having a love for the water, working on watercraft seemed natural. After graduating college and obtaining his bachelor of arts in marketing Eric’s love of the water and Ocean City, MD brought him back to the beach to pursue a career.
In 2002, the opportunity became available for the young entrepreneur to buy his own business with the help, support, and guidance of his parents and grandparents. Eric Fiori leased an existing marina on 52nd street in Ocean City, MD. The primary business at that time was Jet Ski rentals in the Isle of Wright Bay and servicing watercraft. Due to wonderful customer service and customer satisfaction the business flourished. Eric’s reputation as an expert mechanic traveled quickly. Eric Fiori researched taking on a line of watercraft. With his mechanical experience and observation Eric found The Kawasaki jet ski brand, which were well built machines that came in very little for service and repair. The opportunity arose to take on the Yamaha franchise in 2010 which was concurrent with our major expansion into a much larger facility in Berlin MD.
The rapid growth allowed us to open a 10,000 square foot Yamaha sport boat showroom along with a 3,000 square foot personal watercraft showroom which was completed in 2012. It was a tough decision but at the end of 2015 we had to leave our roots behind. We had to make the call to close our original Ocean City store. The business had changed. We were out of room in our Berlin location and needed to secure another piece of property . The room came in the form of a 6 acre fenced in storage facility across the street from our current 4 acre location completed in the spring of 2016. Also in 2016, Eric’s beloved mother and general manager passed away. We will continue in her honor and make her proud every day.
