Carl Meentzen was born in Bremen, Germany. He is the 7th generation in his family to be in the buisiness of ships, from his father who owned Europa-Afrika Shipping and Freight Line to his great grandfather who was a sailor and later lockmaster in Bremen . Many generations before him were men of the sea. He has come to his excellence in the yachting buisness not only through growing up with boats, but also through years of training and experience. He arrived in the United States in the 1980's after several years of managing service in the Merceded-Benz plant in Gambia,W. Africa. He started his company in Marina Del Rey and has been growing his buisiness ever since.
Anyone who knows Carl will tell you that he is a person who demands a high standard of excellence from himself and the people who work for C.C. Marine Service, Inc.
Carl has recently expanded his parts department and looks forward to customers stopping by his new location at
13605 West Fiji Way in Marina Del Rey, Ca.
