Florida-based marina and yacht repair facility Bradford Marine has acquired Roscioli Yachting Center from OneWater Marine Inc.

Bradford Marine acquired all Roscioli Yachting’s real estate and service operations on 1 October 2023, with Bradford Marine and OneWater entering a lease arrangement for OneWater’s sales organisation to remain on the property. As part of the agreement, Bradford Marine will provide support for the OneWater Yacht Group and Sunseeker brands.

The company says the strategic acquisition will further expand the footprint of Bradford Marine and enhance its capabilities and offerings to 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 delivering excellence in yacht repair and maintenance,” says John Kelly, CEO of Bradford Marine. “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.”

Michael Kelly, president and COO of Bradford Marine, comments: “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.  

“We’re excited to celebrate our expansion with our Bradford family of customers and the marine community at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later this month.”  

This acquisition will expand Bradford Marine’s lift capacity, in-water dockage, and covered storage options for both in-water and out-of-water vessels.

A team of 40 employees from Roscioli are joining the Bradford Marine team, bringing the combined company to 260 employees.
