Sam Hern bought three Mercury outboard motors in 1947 and began building race boats in his backyard in Norwood, Ohio. As the first Mercury outboard dealer in Cincinnati, he expanded to family runabouts in the early 1950’s and moved to Seymour Ave, just across from the Cincinnati Gardens. In 1976, son Jack and good friend Jim Stewert purchased Hern Marine. In 1979, Hern Marine moved to Fairfield, Ohio on Route 4 just off the new I-275 beltway. As the new century came in, so did two additional partners: Jimmy Stewert, son of Jim Stewert and long time employee Ron Cummins, Sales Manager. Jimmy and Ron have continued Hern’s commitment to the highest customer standards in the marine industry… Hern Marine the largest marine store in the mid-west.
