MarineMax set to add new Florida location

MarineMax will open a new location this month at PGA Marina & Boating Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

MarineMax will open a new location this month at PGA Marina & Boating Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

With 52 retail locations, MarineMax is the nation’s largest boat and yacht retailer and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “HZO”.

PGA Marina was purchased last year by an affiliate of Charleston, S.C.-based Atlantic Marina Holdings, which is planning a complete redevelopment of the site.

MarineMax will carry the following lines at PGA: Boston Whaler, Scout, Sea Ray, Azimut, and Galeon.

“We are very pleased and excited to have MarineMax join us at PGA,” Joe Miller of Atlantic Marina Holdings said in a statement. “MarineMax is an industry leader and clearly recognized that we are creating a permanent boat show type setting at PGA.”

Once redeveloped, PGA Marina & Boating Center will offer marine retail and office space for boat brokerages and open air showroom space for display of its inventory.

PGA will also have enclosed, climate-controlled service space available to these boat brokerages for prep, warranty work and general service.

Like the brokerages already at PGA, including Plantation Boat Mart, Stella Marine, SeaVee, and Sovereign Marine Group, Atlantic Marina Holdings believes MarineMax was attracted to the location, high exposure to traffic, and the affluent community of Palm Beach Gardens.

Atlantic Marina Holdings expects additional boat retailers will join this lineup.
