Merger creates 'biggest' South Florida marina

USA: South Florida full-service marina and yacht repair facility Bradford Marine has purchased the adjacently located Roscioli Yachting Center from OneWater Marine.

As part of the transaction, Bradford and OneWater have entered a lease arrangement for OneWater’s sales organisation to remain on the property, and for Bradford to provide world-class support for the OneWater Yacht Group and Sunseeker brands. The strategic acquisition will further expand the footprint of Bradford Marine and solidify its position as a premier yachting destination.
“This marks an incredibly important milestone for our growth as we bring together two esteemed full-service marinas, each with a rich history of delivery excellence in yacht repair and maintenance,” said Bradford Marine CEO John Kelly. “By combining our teams’ extensive expertise, we will continue to improve the yachting experience for our customers while striving to make yacht ownership easy and enjoyable.”
“Since my father and I entered into the Fort Lauderdale marine industry in 2019 with our acquisition of Bradford Marine and Bradford Grand Bahama, we’ve been able to expand our service offerings through our acquisitions of Billfish Marina, High Seas Technology, Pipewelders Marine, P&R Canvas, and now Roscioli Yachting Center,” noted Michael Kelly, president and COO of Bradford Marine.
Key elements of the merged sites include expanded lift capacity via the addition of a 320-ton machine; an additional 5,000ft (1,520m) of covered dockage bringing the total on site to over 19,000ft (5,800m) for yachts up to 180ft (55m); and an additional 1,000ft (300m) of covered drystack that brings Bradford Marine’s total dry dockage to 3,500ft (1,070m).
Following the acquisition, Bradford Marine now offers more linear feet of in-water dockage than any other marina in South Florida. A team of 40 employees from Roscioli joins the Bradford Marine team bringing the combined company to 260 employees.
