Sarasota, Fla. (May 13, 2014) – MarineMax, the nation's largest recreational boat and yacht retailer, announced that it has expanded its brand offering as the new dealer for Ocean Alexander Yachts from Texas to the East Coast. MarineMax exhibited at the recent Suncoast Boat Show, April 25 through April 27, on the water at Marina Jack, Downtown Sarasota, and showcased the incomparable Ocean Alexander 2014 90 Motoryacht. Her graceful bearing and hushed opulence are the first things you notice. Lingering behind her obvious splendor is over 30 years of hard-driving, daring Ocean Alexander obsession with engineering excellence and performance.
William H. McGill, Jr., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of MarineMax, stated, "We are excited about expanding with Ocean Alexander. The brand has been increasingly recognized by the American buyer as one of the preferred yachts of choice among those looking for a traditional luxury yacht. The quality, craftsmanship, engineering, and design are very appealing and the broad range of yachts allows our customers to stay in the MarineMax family as they grow their boating lifestyle."
“MarineMax is more than a boat dealer,” said Kyle Langbehn, Regional President of West Florida. “Our customers gain access to a wealth of experience that can match them with the perfect boat from our unparalled diversity of brands and models. Our partnership with Ocean Alexander shows our commitment to listening to our customers’ wants and needs, and delivering on our promise to create our boat lineup accordingly.”
“Whether you’re a family, empty nesters or brand new to boating, we have the right choice for you,” said Langbehn. In addition to the 90 Motoryacht at the show, the all-new Sea Ray 350 SLX, the versatile new Sailfish 275 Dual Console, and the stunning Azimut 45 Flybridge, all made a splash with the show attendees.
