OneWater’s Legendary Marine said it is opening a new 33,000-square-foot retail super center in Panama City Beach, Fla.

The new facility is three doors from the existing location, a converted gas station and mini-mart on Thomas Drive.

“The new building will allow us to offer an even more world-class boat-buying and ownership experience,” store manager Baxter Lusink said in a statement. “We had drastically outgrown our previous location and are excited to welcome our boating family and friends to this unbelievable facility.”

The new Panama City Beach facility has room for more than 120 boats, up to 40 of which will be inside the air-conditioned showroom; eight service bays; and a massive parts and accessories department with enough office space for 24 employees.

Situated on one of the busiest thoroughfares on and off the beach, the new store offers convenient access for local area boaters, the dealership said.

“We’re excited to open this new building in Panama City Beach,” Legendary Marine vice president of sales Mark Breton said. “As a growing dealer in the Panhandle for the last 15 years, we’ve always believed we could do more in Panama City Beach; so, when the opportunity to build this facility presented itself, we didn’t hesitate to jump on it.”

The public is invited to a grand opening on Friday and Saturday. Legendary Marine said there will be savings on all new and used boats in stock; live music, food and drinks; electronics seminars; fishing clinics; casting contests; activities for children; and raffle and door prizes.

Marine artists and local vendors will also be at the store to celebrate the opening.
