MarineMax’s Year in Review

January 9, 2018

The end of 2017 concludes another great year for MarineMax! This past year was accompanied by many great accomplishments as they worked to serve their MarineMax family while welcoming in many new customers as well! This upcoming June 2018 is especially exciting as it will mark MarineMax’s 20th year as a public company.

Representing numerous numbers of brands throughout the nation, MarineMax doesn’t just sell boats, but the boating lifestyle! They help express this lifestyle through various Getaways! they sponsor throughout the year. These Getaways! are exclusively for MarineMax customers and their families to explore new areas and to meet new friends along the way. Getaways are the perfect way to experience all that MarineMax has to offer.

MarineMax Vacations is your one-stop shop for a Caribbean retreat! The team at MarineMax will help plan your dream trip to the British Virgin Islands so you have less to worry about. Perfect for family reunions or just a quick weekend trip this upcoming year, the MarineMax Vacations team is just a call away.

Although 2017 had many great highlights, it was a year accompanied by hardships as well. One of the most devastating storms ripped through the Caribbean this past November with the occurrence of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Since MarineMax Vacations and the boating lifestyle partner so closely with the Caribbean, it came as no surprise that MarineMax immediately stepped up to the plate to help.

At the end of November, employees from MarineMax, Correct Craft, and Nautique came together in the British Virgin Islands to assist residents with their recovery efforts. Employees from these marine industry leaders joined together to help the residents on the island of Tortola, and specifically the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College.

Due to hurricane Irma, the school’s surrounding area suffered major damage including several downed trees, roofing damage, and mass debris. This debris along with the lack of power, air conditioning, and lights has prevented most students from returning to school. The MarineMax, Correct Craft, and Nautique team worked diligently to clear the campus and access roads in order for these problems to be fixed and for students to resume their education.

“We are dedicated to supporting the residents and businesses of the British Virgin Islands. Tourism is an integral part of the economy of the islands, and we are committed to aiding the restoration,” stated Brett McGill, President and COO of MarineMax.

Residents of the British Virgin Islands rely on visitors year-round as tourism is their main industry and source of income. You can help by booking a charter with MarineMax Vacations who will donate 10% of new booking fees through March 1, 2018 to the rejuvenation of the islands. To book a charter to the British Virgin Islands with MarineMax Vacations call (813) 644-8071 or visit

Although there were adversities this past year, MarineMax is proud to help where they could and assist in making BVI the flourishing island we all know and love. With the ringing in of the New Year this past weekend, MarineMax looks forward to a vibrant 2018!
