Tennessee dealer buys Kentucky showroom

Marine Sales of Pickwick, Tenn., announced an expansion into Kentucky with the acquisition of Kentuckiana Yacht Sales, which includes a 10,000-square-foot dealership showroom.

"We are excited to be expanding our sales operations into the Kentucky Lake area," Marine Sales of Pickwick general manager Ron Martin said on the company’s website. "With this new location we have the opportunity to utilize our skills to create a premier boat sales facility servicing the Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley communities."

The company added Ken Toby to run the operations in Kentucky.

“The Western Kentucky Lake Region for years has been a target area of expansion for our company,” Marine Sales LLC dealer principal Mike Tutor said on the website. "The Land Between the Lakes community represents an area that has a deep appreciation for lake recreation and boating. We believe this acquisition, along with its great team and loyal customer following, combined with the integration of our other product offerings, will help us expand and improve upon our ability to deliver the highest caliber of service Marine Sales is known for in this great boating community.”

An official grand opening for Marine Sales’ Kentucky location will be held in the spring after the dealership completes its training and certification processes.
