Emerald Coast Marine Group opened its second location in Orange Beach, Ala. President Shawn Talpey opened the 6,000-square-foot dealership during a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week.

“We are very excited to expand our dealership and brand reach into Alabama at what is arguably the most attractive and popular boating destination in the state,” Talpey said in a statement. “We have already sold to customers in this region. Offering closer proximity and a high degree of customer service will contribute to our growth throughout the region.”

Michael T. Ludvigsen was named manager. Before joining Emerald Coast, Ludvigsen worked with some of the largest retailers and yacht organizations in the region. He is a member of the Alabama Coastal Business Chamber and serves as an ambassador on the Marine Trades Committee.

“Michael has deep roots within the regional boating community and a solid reputation that is in alignment with our customer-centric culture,” Talpey said.

The dealership will carry ten boat brands.
