Singleton Marine, the No. 3 dealer on the 2014 Top 100 list, has expanded north of Birmingham, Ala., by opening a new location on Smith Lake at Trident Marina. The Smith Lake location will feature new Regal and Chris-Craft sport boats from 19 to 28 feet as well as Harris pontoons from 22 to 28 feet; some with 300 horsepower.
"For the last 20 years, we've sold a handful of boats each year to customers on Smith Lake from our Lake Martin location," said Austin Singleton, CEO of OneWater Marine Holdings, parent company of Singleton Marine. "The opportunity to put a store here at Trident Marina gives us a greater presence on Smith Lake while better serving our existing customer base in the area."
"Before inviting a new boat dealership into our marina, we interviewed numerous dealers," said Jeff Tolbert, the owner of Trident Marina. "Singleton Marine really impressed us with their commitment to the customer buying and ownership experience, top ranking with each of their industry-leading boat brands, financial stability, as well as sharing our long-term vision for the Smith Lake market and beyond."
Singleton Marine will have an on-site sales office and staff that can sell new boats while also facilitating trade-ins.
