Taking its first steps into the Sunshine State with SunDance Marine’s five East Coast dealerships recently coming aboard, Atlanta’s OneWater Marine Holdings looks forward to enlarging its Florida footprint with SunDance as its newest division.
SunDance co-founders and former owners Joe Clawges and Mitch Milesi will continue to steer SunDance’s daily operations under the new arrangement.
"Joining OneWater allows us to introduce new offerings to our loyal employees and amazing customers that wouldn't be possible if we remained independent," Milesi said. Clawges concurred, emphasizing how SunDance customers will benefit from OneWater’s “powerful” distribution, finance and insurance options, and standardized operations.
“I'm really excited that our customers will get to experience this with us," said Clawges.
With locations in Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Jensen Beach, Melbourne, and Pompano Beach, SunDance Marine sells new, used, and brokerage boats and yachts, offers mobile and on-site service options, storage, and launch facilities at many of its locations.
"Joe and Mitch have spent 36 years building a powerful presence in South Florida," said Austin Singleton, CEO of OneWater Marine Holdings. "SunDance is a great complement to our portfolio of existing dealerships and is a significant first step in our aggressive push into Florida."
SunDance Marine will continue to operate under its current name and continue to offer Regal, Formula, Ranger, Tidewater, Stingray, and Albury Brothers crafts.
