Quality Power and Sail, a boat export, brokerage and service company in Broward County, Florida, recently acquired Nautical Ventures South, a 26-year-old water-sports retailer and outfitting company.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Nautical Ventures specializes in a range of water sports equipment and is ranked as a top 10 dealer for Hobie Cat and Ocean Kayak. Other lines it carries include Laser Performance sailboats, such as Sunfish, Laser and 420s; Mistral windsurfing products; Wilderness Systems kayaks; O'Brien water skis and wakeboards; and Cabrinha kiteboarding equipment.
Earlier this fall Quality Power and Sail took over the company's 2.5-acre site in Dania Beach, Fla. The site was remodeled and the 20,000-square-foot facility was renamed The Dania Marine Center.
The marine center now offers the full line of water-sports equipment; sales of used and consignment vessels; a full-service facility for the refurbishment of boats ranging from 25 to 45 feet; and secure boat and trailer storage.
