Alexander Marine USA announced October 4, 2017, that the company acquired MarineMax San Diego, a yacht brokerage dealer for Azimut, Galeon, and Aquila Yachts.
“This acquisition presents an opportunity for Alexander Marine USA to expand our brand and model offerings, bringing a wider range of options, a higher quality experience, and an increased level of convenience to our customers,” said Ray Prokorym, Vice President of Alexander Marine USA, in a press release. “As the demographics of boaters are changing and demand is increasing, we are pleased to be able to now offer quality, European, and internationally built brands such as Azimut, Galeon, and Aquila.”
Alexander Marine International, the parent company of Alexander Marine USA and manufacturer of Ocean Alexander yachts, began a relationship with MarineMax in 2014, whereby MarineMax became the exclusive East Coast dealer for Ocean Alexander yachts. With the acquisition, Alexander Marine USA will become a partner-dealer with MarineMax for certain West Coast markets.
Alexander Marine USA will now operate in three locations (Seattle, Newport Beach, and San Diego) as MarineMax’s partner-dealer for Azimut, Galeon, and Aquila. Alexander Marine USA will continue to operate as the official dealer for Ocean Alexander yachts and Regal boats on the West Coast, Pursuit Boats in the Southwest, and Tiara Yachts in the Northwest.
