MarineMax said it has acquired Bay Pointe Marina in Quincy, Mass., in the Boston area. The marina has been around since the 1960s and has 250 in-water slips, with 11 acres for storage on land during the winter.

“Strategically adding marinas in key markets is an important component of our ongoing strategy to expand our retail operations and grow our market share,” said W. Brett McGill, president and chief operating officer of MarineMax in a statement.

MarineMax merged with Russo Marine in 2016 to begin its presence in the Boston area.

“We believe adding this great marina will enhance our market leading presence in this strong boating market,” said McGill. “Bay Pointe Marina, combined with our other regional locations, will enable us to expand our service capability and welcome new customers.”

MarineMax currently has 63 locations in the U.S.
