The History of OneWater Marine and its New Yachting Division

OneWater Marine is one of the largest and fastest-growing companies in the recreational boat industry. With a portfolio of high performing marine dealerships across North America, OneWater Marine is a leader in the sales and servicing of new and pre-owned boats and yachts. Started in 1987 by the Singleton family, OneWater Marine has a rich history of growth. Through the years, management has thoughtfully expanded from the single store in 1987 to the 69 stores it operates in 2021. While OneWater Marine has opened new stores in select markets, management has also been quite effective at acquiring existing stores and optimizing operations as each joins the OneWater Marine family. In 2020, OneWater Marine priced a public offering of common stock with the intention of using the proceeds for general corporate purposes as well as fueling further growth in the months and years ahead. OneWater Marine trades on the Nasdaq under the ticker ONEW. While OneWater Marine continues an aggressive growth strategy in expanding its retail footprint, the company is also firmly committed to building and growing its new yachting division. OneWater Yacht Group is the newly formed yacht brokerage and service business of OneWater Marine. Rebranded from Grande Yachts, the group now includes newly acquired businesses such as Tom George Yacht Group and the Roscioli Yachting Center. Now led by Tom George, OneWater Yacht Group has established a firm foundation for yacht sales and the servicing of OneWater clients. The OneWater Yacht Group (OWYG) has a world class yacht brokerage team selling Sunseeker, Absolute, Riviera and Belize yachts. But the commitment to clients through the purchase of a yacht and beyond is what sets this team apart. OWYG brokers are relationship focused, seeking the client’s long-term satisfaction and enjoyment throughout all aspects of yacht acquisition and ownership. Whether it is advising on servicing the yacht, recommending crew options or providing guidance on resale, OWYG brokers are available throughout the duration of yacht ownership.
With the acquisition of the Roscioli Yachting Center, OWYG is now able to provide first class service to clients with ease. With respect to sales, the OWYG brokerage team can schedule haul outs and surveys or complete requested punch list work to get clients up and running quickly rather than be forced to wait for other yards to get to work. OWYG clients have priority for service work and/or storage at the Roscioli Yachting Center. The combination of a relationship-first sales process and the ability to offer a vast array of world class services all under one roof truly sets OWYG apart. OWYG has sales offices throughout Southeast Florida, Dunedin and Clearwater, Florida, Lake Lanier, Georgia, North Carolina, New York, Maryland and Boston and Cape Cod.
