Suntex Marina Investors last week announced that it acquired The Wharf, a marina in Marathon, Fla., in the Keys. The company plans an extensive renovation of the property, which it plans to relaunch as Ocean View Marina. 

“In just the short year that we’ve owned Faro Blanco, we’ve seen the incredible draw of this region, and when we got the opportunity to acquire the facility a mile down the road, we had to take it,” Suntex Marinas investments partner David Filler said in a statement. “We are looking forward to taking the reins and completing the construction.”

In addition to The Wharf and Faro Blanco, the company owns two other marinas in the Keys: Caloosa Cove and Garrison Bight.
MarineMax yesterday announced in a statement that it appointed Margriet Mitchell brand marketing manager for the Azimut, Cruisers and Ocean Alexander brands.
Mitchell has 20 years of marketing management experience in luxury goods and services, including as marketing director for Jeanneau and Prestige Yachts.
MarineMax said Mitchell serves on the boards of the Marine Marketers of America and Sail America, and is a 2015 recipient of the TWIN Award, which recognizes women “who have made significant contributions to industry in managerial, executive, supervisory and/or professional roles.”
