An engine parts counter will be staffed by specialists, and West Marine said the store will have a huge assortment of watersports gear, including stand-up paddleboards, plus footwear and casual and technical apparel.

“The Florida Keys is a beautiful place for boating, fishing and sailing,” store manager Kevin Robertson said in a statement. “Our experienced crew is eager to offer our customers all of the necessary gear to enjoy everything from an active day to just relaxing on a sandbar.”

There will be 15 associates at the store. Among them they have more than 300 years of combined experience on the water, the company said.
