Seminole Marine buys SouthWind

Seminole Marine Group in Georgia acquired SouthWind boats, previously a part of Bennington Marine of Elkhart, Ind., company president Paul Hoppes announced.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The boats will be built at the company's Cairo, Ga. facility, company officials said.

Earlier this week, Seminole Marine, makers of the Sailfish brand of saltwater fishing boats, announced the formation of Seminole Marine Group to explore additional opportunities in the boatbuilding industry.

"We strongly believe that marine dealers are looking for long-term relationships with solid, well-run, independent companies that offer first-class products, great customer service and immediate consumer recognition," Hoppes said in that announcement.
