Boater’s World Marine Centers, with current locations in Florida and Georgia, is planning to open a new dealership later this year on the Sunshine State’s Gulf Coast, in the city of Bradenton, Fla.

“The current demand in the industry leaves us in a great position to expand our dealer model to a more populated area on the coast,” Stewart Thompson, president, Boater’s World Marine Centers said in a statement. “Our Bradenton location will be the flagship dealer with more expansions in the future. The West coast dealership will be the largest of its kind and give fantastic exposure for its partnering brands.”

With the success of the current locations and the accelerated development of Boater’s World’s boat-buying division, the statement said, the expansion to Bradenton and the Gulf Coast will facilitate more growth over the company’s multiple locations.
