OneWater Marine Holdings adds Florida dealer

Atlanta-based OneWater Marine Holdings added SunDance Marine.

Atlanta-based OneWater Marine Holdings added SunDance Marine, which has five locations on Florida’s east coast, as the first phase of its growth plans for the Sunshine State.

Joe Clawges and Mitch Milesi, co-founders and former owners of SunDance, will continue to operate SunDance as a division of OneWater Marine Holdings.

“Joe and Mitch have spent 36 years building a powerful presence in South Florida,” OneWater Marine Holdings CEO Austin Singleton said in a statement. “SunDance is a great complement to our portfolio of existing dealerships and is a significant first step in our aggressive push into Florida.”

“Joining OneWater allows us to introduce new offerings to our loyal employees and amazing customers that wouldn’t be possible if we remained independent,” Milesi said.

“SunDance customers will benefit greatly from OneWater’s powerful used-boat distribution network, exclusive finance and insurance programs and standardized operations that leverage best practices learned from the best dealerships across the industry. I’m really excited that our customers will get to experience this with us,” Clawges said.

SunDance Marine will continue to operate each of its locations under its current name and personnel and will continue to offer Regal, Formula, Ranger, Tidewater, Stingray and Albury Brothers boats.
