Nautical Ventures Expands Marine Retail Division, Buys Northlake Marina Property in West Palm Beach, Florida


Dania Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/24/2015 -- As part of their continuing plan to become South Florida's leading single source retailer for marine recreational products, Nautical Ventures Group has purchased the Northlake Marina property located at 139 Shore Court in North Palm Beach and, as a result, will bring its innovative business model to Palm Beach County.

Strategically located just off the east side of US1, Northlake Boulevard and the Earmin River, this 2-story, 26,300 square foot building offers hi-retail traffic visibility both by roadway and waterway. This new location also comes with a dry stack unit that can house 66 boats, 10 in-water slips, and is a 15 minute boat ride due east to the Palm Beach inlet with no fixed bridges.

According to Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, "After the tremendous consumer response we had from the recent West Palm Beach boat show, combined with the projected demographic growth of the marine industry in Palm Beach, opening our first location here is the logical step. We've had our eye on Palm Beach for a while, but when the opportunity came up to take our business model one county north, we jumped on it."

Nautical Ventures represents a broad range of watersports equipment, including a full line of recreational boats and tenders, and is also one of the biggest Hobie Sail, Kayak and SUP dealers in the United States. They are also largest Novurania dealer in North America, so interior upgrades will include a dedicated Tender showroom to cater specifically to owners & captains of mega yachts.

Notable fiberglass boat lines they inventory include; Action Craft, Buddy Davis, Caravelle, Century, Key Largo, Tahoe, and Universal Hovercrafts. Plans are in place to upgrade and modernize the showroom to reflect this broad inventory. Cosmetic changes to the exterior of the building will take on the fun & playful feel of their Dania store.

Closing is slated for July 2015 with a grand opening expecting in September 2015. Other notable facts include: Full service marine fuel docks with two tanks, 4,000 gallon capacity dispensing 7-days, (Nautical Ventures Group also owns LukFuel); a 25 ton TraveLiftTM and Wiggins Marina Bull on the property; just minutes by water or land to the Port of Palm Beach, Peanut Island, the Rybovich Superyacht Marina and downtown Palm Beach.
