MarineMax plans re-opening of Jersey showroom


MarineMax will reopen its showroom in Lake Hopatcong, N.J., to the public on Oct. 11.

The 134 Espanong Road location underwent a complete renovation. MarineMax Lake Hopatcong offers Sea Ray, Azimut, Boston Whaler, Meridian and Scarab jetboats, along with a selection of used and brokerage boats.

“We are excited to reopen our doors after a long rebuilding period,” MarineMax Mid-Atlantic regional president Mike Aiello said in a statement. “We are very proud to be part of this tremendous boating community and we look forward to helping our customers enjoy the boating lifestyle.”

The location will feature a staff of three sales consultants — Mitch Scharf, Erin Braun and Larry Morgan — that have more than 50 years of combined sales experience at MarineMax.

Charles Nelson will be the store’s general manager and Greg Keil will be the business manager.
