Born and raised here in Charleston, SC, Robby grew up in the boat business. The Renken Family has been building boats in the Lowcountry since the 1950s, first with Renken Boats and now with Sea Fox Boats. His father, Kenny Renken, owned and operated Renken Boat Center here in Charleston for over 30 years. Robby worked part time through high school and college before coming on full time at Renken Boat Center in 2001. He worked in all aspects of the family business from Service to Sales.
Renken Boat Center closed in the fall of 2010 and leased the dealership to Barrier Island Marine, and Robby went to work there in early 2011. He started briefly in Sales before taking over as the Service Manager from 2011 to the spring of 2015 when he moved back into Sales. He came to Palmetto Boat Sales in the Fall of 2015 along with the Maverick Boat Group Brands, Pathfinder, Maverick, Hewes, and Cobia. Robby brings a wealth of knowledge of the boating industry and prides himself on helping clients find the best boat to suit their needs.
A graduate of Porter Gaud and Clemson University, Robby resides here with his wife, Julia, and their 2 children, Robert and Sadler. Robby is an avid outdoorsman who spends as much time as possible on the water fishing or cruising with the family or in the woods hunting.
