OneWater Marine Inc. announced results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2021.      

“The OneWater team delivered record revenue and earnings in fiscal year 2021 despite a challenging supply chain environment that limited production at OEMs. In fact, customer demand has continued at historic levels with no signs of slowing, which we expect will support further growth well into the coming year,” commented Austin Singleton, Chief Executive Officer at OneWater. “At the same time, we are realizing tremendous growth in our higher-margin areas of the business and our acquisition strategy has maintained an accelerated pace including the notable addition of PartsVu, as well as the pending acquisition of T-H Marine. Based on our attractive M&A pipeline, we expect 2022 to be another robust deal year. We have clearly hit our stride, which is reflected in the dedication and commitment across the team and will continue to position OneWater to outperform the market.”
