John is, hands down, THE MOST POPULAR figure in pleasure boating today, with millions each week tuning in, via 8 different television networks.  Big news guys…anyone can watch the program, now anywhere in the world, on any device, via the all new “Ship Shape TV-Online”.

His ability to relate to the boat owner is unparalleled, and his enthusiasm is contagious. John Greviskis cares about the boat owner… and that compassion carries over into every project that the show takes on.

Just ask the media. Some of the Nation’s most respected publications and organizations, like the Chicago Tribune, Ft. Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, and other major boating magazines refer to John as “the Norm Abram of the sea.” John has also been previously elected to the ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) as a board member. And was just just recently appointed as an Honorary Admiral for the Alabama Navy from Governor Robert Bentley.

John M. Greviskis is originally from the shores of Lake Erie in Northern Ohio. As a boy, his interest in boating and his vision for television were his two sole passions. As a theater major in college, John played many large roles in over thirty-five different productions. His talent was noticed, and he was cast for the role of Benny Popadopolis in the films “The Hoods” and “The Final Goodbye.”

John moved on to Florida, where he entered the world of Radio. He spent the next ten years mastering the art of “theater of the mind,” winning countless ADDY awards for his production capabilities.

Upon formation of G Force Advertising (his own advertising agency), John began his work in television production, starting with thirty-second commercials, and eventually moving into the half-hour infomercial arena.

Ship Shape TV is John’s brainchild, now beginning its 21st season.

Ship Shape TV is seen on a large number of Regional Sports Networks including Fox Sports Net- Florida, Comcast Sports Net- New England, Sun Sports in Florida & the Caribbean, Fox Sports Net- South, Comcast Sports Net Chicago, MASN in the Mid-Atlantic, Root Sports SW for the Gulf Coast States… and finally on Root Sports NW reaching the entire Pacific Northwest.

John writes, directs, produces and stars in every one of the over 550 episodes created.

“The G-Man”… as many individuals in the boating community often refer to him as… also works with some of the best minds in the marine industry, in order to convey vital maintenance issues, accessorizing ideas showing the right way to install these items for the craft… Plus, full blown repair information, always with the goal to teach and help out his fellow boater. Each week, different projects, repair and/or improvements are addressed.

To round things out, Ship Shape TV occasionally features selected manufacturers’ facilities. Viewers are taken straight to the source to see how some products, which are manufactured on boaters’ behalf, are produced and created.

John’s PASSION FOR BOATING and his UPBEAT ABILITY TO TEACH are the qualities that make this show fun, exciting, entertaining and informative.

John Greviskis is UNIQUE… and Ship Shape TV is a ONE OF A KIND show.
