Marine Connection adds Florida dealership

Publish date:

Marine Connection has announced plans to open a new dealership in Fort Lauderdale in October.

The location will add to the company’s current facilities in Miami, West Palm Beach and Vero Beach, Fla.

The Fort Lauderdale dealership is a 27,000-square-foot property that includes a 2,500- square-foot building on Fort Lauderdale’s Marina Mile and is in close proximity to Port Everglades and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. It will have space for as many as 40 new and used boats, a sales office, a fuel station, a parts counter and service bays.

“We are very excited about opening this beautiful new dealership in Fort Lauderdale, in one of the premier boating capitals of the world,” Marine Connection owner Danny Goldberg said in a statement. “We chose Fort Lauderdale for our latest expansion due to its strategic positioning between our Miami and West Palm Beach dealership locations, coupled with the popularity of boating in the marketplace. The Fort Lauderdale store will primarily serve boating enthusiasts residing in North Miami Dade and South Broward County.”

Goldberg and partner John Kutuk purchased the property in mid-August.

At the new location Marine Connection will sell Cobia, Sportsman and Hurricane brand boats and will exclusively offer Yamaha power.
