Rambo Marine, which has locations in Huntsville and Birmingham, Ala., has a new owner in Atlanta-based OneWater Marine Holdings LLC.

Scooter Rambo, founder and former owner of Rambo Marine, will continue to operate the business as a division of OneWater Marine. Bennett Rambo will manage the Birmingham and Hazel Green locations, as well as the Singleton Marine location on Smith Lake.

“Scooter opened Rambo Marine in Hazel Green the same year my family opened Singleton Marine just south of them on Lake Martin. For 28 years, our families have operated dealerships in adjacent territories and I’ve always looked up to and admired Scooter and the business he’s built over the last three decades,” OneWater Marine Holdings CEO Austin Singleton said in a statement. “Rambo Marine is a perfect complement to our existing portfolio of dealerships and represents a natural geographic expansion for us into the northern parts of Alabama and southern Tennessee.”

Scooter Rambo said his family is thrilled to join an aggressive and growing organization like OneWater Marine.

“This opportunity allows us to leverage the business our family has spent the last 28 years building as a springboard for us to introduce some exciting new opportunities to our loyal employees and amazing customers,” Rambo said. “Our customers will greatly benefit from us being a part of a larger organization that has broader reach and more centralized back-office resources; all while still operating and maintaining the family and local feel that our employees will continue to deliver. I’m really excited that our customers get to experience this with us.”
