OneWater Marine has entered into a strategic relationship with Bradford Marine, in which OneWater completed a sale/leaseback arrangement of the Roscioli Yachting Center with Bradford Marine to provide world-class support for the OneWater Yacht Group and Sunseeker brands.

Alongside, Bradford Marine will acquire the service operation at the Roscioli Yachting Center and all of the related real estate.

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.
