MarineMax, Inc. has expanded its presence in the Northeast by acquiring Bay Pointe Marina in Massachusetts.
Bay Pointe Marina is a well-recognized and established full-service marina serving the greater Boston market and is located on the Town River in Quincy.
“Strategically adding marinas in key markets, is an important component of our ongoing strategy to expand our retail operations and grow our market share," said W. Brett McGill, MarineMax president and chief operating officer. "Building upon our 2016 successful merger with Russo Marine in the Boston area, we believe adding this great marina will enhance our market leading presence in this strong boating market. Bay Pointe Marina, combined with our other regional locations, will enable us to expand our service capability and welcome new customers to our boating family.”
Bay Pointe Marina first opened as a recreational marina in the 1960s, has approximately 250 in water slips and 11 acres to store more than 300 boats during the winter, as well as a 50-ton travel lift capable of hauling boats over 65 feet, said Alex Russon, MarineMax General Manager. A 300-seat restaurant, known as Bay Pointe Waterfront, is also located on-site.
“MarineMax will be relocating from its current home in Dorchester by October 1, 2018,” added Larry Russo, Jr. MarineMax northeast regional president. “This new location will enable us to expand our service capability and welcome new customers. In the spring of 2019, we will open a sales office representing Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Sailfish, Galeon, Azimut and Aquila in addition to pre-owned and brokerage offerings.”
