PENSACOLA, FL – One In A Row Ventures, LLC, a local investment group led by entrepreneur Jason Crawford, in partnership with Chad Henderson, CEO/Founder of Pensacola-based Catalyst HRE, announced today the purchase of Bayou Chico’s iconic Day Break Marina along with boat dealership L&M Marine, located in Stapleton, Alabama.

“My partners and I are honored to help write the next chapter for these companies that have such a rich history in their respective communities. Both brands have been well-led by passionate owners who built committed teams and were rewarded with loyal customers that fueled decades of profitable operations. This is the foundation on which we intend make them even more successful in the years ahead,' Crawford said.

The companies’ success is one reason why customers should expect to see most of the same faces in leadership roles.

“My father started Day Break Marina in 1989 as a local businessman committed to serving local boaters better than his competitors would or could,” said Jake Adams, who will remain general manager and part owner of Daybreak Marina. “Our decision to join with the One In A Row team was based on their company values and a promise to take even better care of the friends and neighbors who have made us successful for three decades.”

Adams’ sentiments were echoed by Jon Page, who will stay on as the Market Manager of L&M Marine.

“For years, L&M Marine has been the trusted advisor for thousands of boaters across the Southeast -- with some of the best brands in the industry. From boats, motors, parts and accessories to service and financing – we offer it all,” Page said. “Joining forces with One In A Row and the Day Break Marina team gives us direct reach into one of our best markets and gives us and them a local leg up on our competition.”

We’re already creating a dealership space at Day Break Marina, so customers will be able to try and buy L&M boats on site,” Crawford said.

I tried to buy a Skeeter there, the people were very nice initially. We agreed upon a price and some extras for the boat. They said the extras would have to be ordered and would take a little while before they could install them. No problem, not a rush for some extra seat cushions. Then they said, but you can't pick the boat up for 4 weeks. I said, "I don't understand, the boat is right there, needs oil, gas, and batteries." The salesman got really defensive and said how it wouldn't be ethical to rig the boat(needed oil, gas, and batteries) before his other customers who had already purchased boats. It was a Thursday, so I said if you have the boat ready Monday, call me and I'll bring the check. Really weird experience, never heard from them again

The WHOLE industry is being Gobbeled up.

What does that really mean? Daybreak owners staying to ease the transition? Surely, if they sold it...They may help a little with transition and then move along...IE: Leave.

Saw this with Blue Coral.....No one there is the same..that were significant . As my friend Joe says.....A Yankee Lawyer owns it now.

Harbor View.....Bought out by legendary..... I've seen prices shoot up higher than West Marine.
