ATLANTA, July 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rambo Marine, with locations in Huntsville and Birmingham, Alabama has partnered with Atlanta-based OneWater Marine Holdings, LLC. Scooter Rambo, founder and former owner of Rambo Marine will continue to operate Rambo Marine as a division of OneWater Marine. Bennett Rambo will manage the Birmingham and Hazel Green Rambo locations as well as the Singleton Marine location on Smith Lake.
"Scooter opened Rambo Marine in Hazel Green the same year my family opened Singleton Marine just south of them on Lake Martin. For 28 years, our families have operated dealerships in adjacent territories and I've always looked up to and admired Scooter and the business he's built over the last three decades," said Austin Singleton, CEO of OneWater Marine Holdings. "Rambo Marine is a perfect complement to our existing portfolio of dealerships and represents a natural geographic expansion for us into the Northern parts of Alabama and southern Tennessee."
"We're thrilled to join an aggressive and growing organization like OneWater Marine," said Scooter Rambo. "This opportunity allows us to leverage the business our family has spent the last 28 years building as a springboard for us to introduce some exciting new opportunities to our loyal employees and amazing customers. Our customers will greatly benefit from us being a part of a larger organization that has broader reach and more centralized back-office resources; all while still operating and maintaining the family and local feel that our employees will continue to deliver. I'm really excited that our customers get to experience this with us."
In addition to joining the OneWater Marine Holdings family of dealerships, Rambo Marine will also introduce Malibu and Axis towboats starting with the 2016 model year. Malibu has been the nation's top-selling towboat brand since 2009.
Rambo Marine will continue to operate using its current name, locations, and personnel. Rambo Marine will also continue to offer Cobalt and Marker One pontoons at both their Birmingham and Huntsville locations while also introducing them to the Singleton Marine location on Smith Lake.
