Texas-based TopSide Marinas announced in a statement that it acquired Beavers Bend Marina in Oklahoma and Galveston Yacht Basin in Texas.

Founded in January 2020, TopSide is backed by Miramar Equity Partners and TRT Holdings. TopSide acquired Beavers Bend Marina on Broken Bow Lake in Broken Bow, Okla., earlier this year.

“Everything we do comes back to hospitality. We want to foster environments where families and friends feel welcome to come and enjoy their time on the water,” co-founder Stephen Lehn said in a statement.
