Celebrating 20 Years of Boating Together

2018 marks 20 years of the MarineMax family coming together to provide the world's best pleasure boating experience. Together we have created new memories, made new friends, explored new places and changed lives.

We were honored to ring the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange on June 6, in celebration of our 20th anniversary!

Boating Changes Lives

If you’re looking for the story behind MarineMax’s success, look no further than the childhood of company founder Bill McGill.  Cherished weekends on the water with his family would ultimately go on to define McGill’s life, and in turn, serve to shape the MarineMax experience.

We Are Boaters

At MarineMax we do more than sell boats, we live the boating lifestyle. Our Team Members take just as much joy in getting on the water as our customers do. Let MarineMax share your interest in the boating lifestyle!
  • The MarineMax Story

    The roots of MarineMax date back over 40 years, but the story starts when CEO Bill McGill moved his family to Florida to turn his lifelong passion into what would become the world’s largest boat retailer. It was the start of thousands of family memories all centered on the water.
