Submitted by MARINEMAX

CLEARWATER, Fla. – In its 20th year, MarineMax reflects on the changes in the boating industry and looks forward to the many years ahead.

The roots of MarineMax date back over 45 years, but the story starts when chairman and CEO Bill McGill moved his family to Florida to turn his lifelong passion into what would become the world’s largest boat retailer. Later he, along with a group of America’s leading boat retailers, decided the boating industry was in need of change. By uniting companies, they could maximize efficiency of operations while sharing best practices on everything from insurance to mobile boat-servicing, and allow team members to focus on what’s important: getting customers out on the water.

Part of the MarineMax commitment includes offering top-notch brands. In their showrooms and along their docks, you will see a diverse lineup in size and use, but MarineMax is more than a dealer, they are a resource. In addition to boats and yachts, they offer world- class service, financing and insurance, educational programs, access to Getaways! and other boating events. They offer everything that is needed to help you enjoy the boating lifestyle.

“We are constantly focusing on new opportunities and experiences for you. Our passionate team will continue to focus on your needs, welcome your feedback and the opportunity to continue working to exceed your expectations,” stated MarineMax Chairman and CEO, Bill McGill.

In celebration of their 20th Anniversary, MarineMax is planning a plethora of activities. For more information on what’s to come visit
