On the heels of the sale of Rybovich, another high-profile South Florida shipyard is in new hands. OneWater Marine has acquired Roscioli Yachting Center.
A recreational-boating retailer, OneWater Marine purchased both the shipyard as well as the rights to the in-water slips. Bob Roscioli, who died last year, established Roscioli Yachting Center in 1968. It went on to regularly service some of the biggest yachts and most well-known owners in the world. Currently, upwards of 100 craftspeople provide custom carpentry, painting, fabrication, mechanical, and other services.
Austin Singleton, CEO of OneWater Marine, recognized the late Roscioli in a statement. “Bob Roscioli founded Roscioli Yachting Center with the mantra ‘Today’s the Day,’ which is echoed by the OneWater team,” he says. “We are incredibly proud to welcome the Roscioli team to the OneWater family and to blend their industry-leading skillset with our proven strategic vision.”
That vision includes augmenting the company’s repair and service offerings, as well as its presence in the large-yacht market. Generally, OneWater has concentrated on new- and brokerage boat sales, particularly production boats, through dealerships. Additionally, though, providing finance, insurance, and even boat-storage services.
