Atlanta-based OneWater Marine Holdings acquired The Slalom Shop, with locations in Lewisville and Graford, Texas. Terms of the agreement weren’t disclosed.

“I’m excited to welcome The Slalom Shop team to the OneWater family of dealerships,” said OneWater Marine CEO Austin Singleton in a statement. “This addition allows us to expand with Cobalt, one of OneWater’s core brands. We’re also excited about working with Supra and Moomba while introducing Barletta pontoons to the north Texas market.”

“Austin and I have been friends and in a Cobalt 20 Group together for 20-plus years,” said Darrell Wilson, of The Slalom Shop. “We’ve discussed his dream of putting OneWater together many, many times. It’s exciting and inspiring to see it all come together as it has, and I feel like now was the right time for us to join the OneWater family.”

The company will continue to operate its current locations under The Slalom Shop name. Existing employees are expected to remain with the company.
