MarineMax dealership renovates showroom in Florida

MarineMax Pompano Beach in Florida hosted guests at a grand opening in its renovated waterfront showroom.

A second-floor water main break led to the decision to remodel the 7,500-square-foot showroom and second-floor office spaces. The showroom was built in 1989.

“Our renovations were significant, both financially and cosmetically, considering both levels of the building were completely gutted and remodeled,” MarineMax Pompano general manager Kyle Roney said in a statement. “We also added a new customer lounge, landscaping, lighting, sound system and waterfall element and replaced the wood deck of 15 docks with synthetic decking material.”

MarineMax said the Pompano Beach location increased year-over-year sales and added three new employees during the 18 months that it took to complete the renovations.

“We are pleased that we are continuing to grow the business,” Roney said. “However, we perceive and embrace that at the end of the day our true measure is customer satisfaction. This is why we have structured our business to deliver boating, as opposed to simply selling boats. By offering opportunities to expand our customers’ boating knowledge, providing phenomenal opportunities to use their boats and delivering exceptional service, our customers enjoy the best total ownership experience anywhere.”

“We want to invite all boating enthusiasts to experience the very finest Sea Ray boats and yachts, Meridian yachts, Boston Whalers and Scarab jetboats and all they have to offer in our new and remarkably splendid environment,” Roney added. “These dream machines provide a combination of luxury and performance that is unrivaled by any boats or yachts in their class.”
