MarineMax Significantly Expands Adding 20 Locations With SkipperBud's
Brett McGill, Chief Executive Officer and President of MarineMax said, "We are very excited to expand with such a great organization as SkipperBud's, who we have known for many years and who share our values and culture. The acquisition expands our geographic reach, but it also provides us the opportunity to leverage our business and brand infrastructure across the country, better enabling us to serve customers in all markets. The acquisition aligns with our long-term strategy to grow the boating lifestyle and support those who already love it. We are excited to have Mike Pretasky Jr. join our management team and lead our new locations. Mike has a proven track record in the marine industry and will help lead the Company to continued growth."
Mike Pretasky, Jr., President of SkipperBud's, stated, "We have been long-time industry partners of MarineMax and have similar values of taking care of our customers and our team. We are excited about joining the MarineMax team. Gaining access to their exclusive brands will further drive our growth, especially in larger yachts. The combination of both organizations enables SkipperBud's to take advantage of multiple growth opportunities in the future."
MarineMax and Skipperbud's customers have even greater access to boat selection, an expanded service network and access to industry leading customer experiences. Combined with in-store and online experiences, customers have more opportunities to find and secure the boat of their dreams.
