Publish date:

Scarab Boats, a division of Groupe Beneteau, Cadillac (Mich.) Operations, has added Galey’s Marine of Bakersfield, Calif., to its dealer network.

“We look forward to working with Don Galey and the team at Galey’s Marine, as they have been a longtime industry leader and will certainly advocate the circulation of Scarab products in California and its surrounding areas,” Andy Lindsay, vice president of sales, Americas, for Group Beneteau, said in a statement.

Don Galey, president of Galey Marine, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas. The award was presented to Don’s son, Mark, at the MRAA Opening Night Awards Celebration on Sunday in conjunction with the 2017 Marine Dealer Conference and Expo. Galey is the first recipient of the award.

“Don Galey’s name has been synonymous with leadership in the marine industry, beyond just the dealership level, for decades,” said Matt Gruhn, president of the MRAA. “Don has been a leader for the MRAA, for the boat brands and other partners he represents, for his community and for his dealer colleagues across North America.”

Galey’s Marine was established in 1938 by Don’s father, Otto. Don bought the business from his father in 1955, and in January 1999 Galey’s Marine opened a facility on a 5-acre property and today operates as a full-service dealership.

Mark Galey and Don Galey’s grandson Steve Pinheiro are the primary contacts at Galey’s Marine.
