RAMSEY, Minn. – Months after discussion began between executives of Midwest dealership chain Crystal Pierz Marine and boat builder Tracker Marine Group, the two companies have finalized an agreement in which the Minnesota dealerships have been sold to Tracker.
According to Luke Kujawa, formerly president and COO of Crystal Pierz Marine, talks between his company and Tracker Marine have been ongoing for a couple of months or more, slowly becoming more and more serious. The deal was closed, he said, on Dec. 23rd. Stay tuned to Boating-Industry.com for more detail on this story.
This is not the first time Tracker Marine Group has purchased boat dealerships. In early 2005, Tracker acquired boat dealership chain Travis Boats & Motors, Inc. In addition, the company is closely tied to outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops, both of which were founded by Johnny Morris.
