This acquisition enhances our overall presence on Florida’s West Coast and complements our recent acquisition of Walker Marine Group,” said Austin Singleton, Chief Executive Officer for OneWater. “Philip and his team have done a masterful job with Naples Boat Mart over three-generations, and we look forward to providing new opportunities and resources to support their continued success.”
Philip Osborne, owner of Naples Boat Mart, said, “We are ecstatic to be joining the OneWater family. Naples Boat Mart has maintained both premium products and winning customer service for three-generations. With OneWater’s digital footprint, finance and insurance prowess, and a company culture that is second to none, I believe we can take Naples Boat Mart to new heights, amplifying new and existing revenue streams, while staying beholden to our values as a family-owned company. I am excited to see where our partnership takes us, and the endless opportunities that lie ahead for our team.”
