MarineMax’s roots go back over 45 years, but the company is celebrating its 20th year as a boating retail chain this year.
The story began when chairman and CEO Bill McGill moved his family to Florida to turn his lifelong boating passion into the world’s largest boat retailer with 63 locations.
Later he and a group of boat retailers decided they could maximize efficiency of operations and share best practices on everything from insurance to mobile boat-servicing and allow team members to focus on getting customers out on the water.
In addition to boats and yachts, MarineMax offers service, financing and insurance, educational programs, access to Getaways and other boating events.
“We are constantly focusing on new opportunities and experiences for you,” said McGill in a statement. “Our passionate team will continue to focus on your needs, welcome your feedback and the opportunity to continue working to exceed your expectations.”
Check out a short video featuring McGill, who describes what drew him to the industry in the first place.
In celebration of their 20th Anniversary, MarineMax is planning a plethora of activities. For more information on what’s to come visit the company’s website.
