VIDEO: MarineMax celebrates 20 years

The roots of MarineMax date back more than 45 years, but the story starts when chairman and CEO Bill McGill moved his family to Florida to turn his lifelong passion into what would become the world’s largest boat retailer.

Later he, along with a group of America’s leading boat retailers, decided the boating industry was in need of change.

By uniting companies, they thought they could maximize efficiency of operations while sharing best practices on everything from insurance to mobile boat-servicing, and allow team members to focus on what’s important: getting customers out on the water.

MarineMax sells and services boats, but also offers financing and insurance, educational programs, access to Getaways, and other boating events.

“We are constantly focusing on new opportunities and experiences for you. Our passionate team will continue to focus on your needs, welcome your feedback and the opportunity to continue working to exceed your expectations,” said McGill in a statement.

In celebration of their 20th Anniversary, MarineMax is planning a plethora of activities. For more information on what’s to come visit http://bit.ly/20YearsTogether.

The company also released a video in celebration of its anniversary, which you can check out here.
