    Looks like Marine Max has gobbled up Texas Mastercraft.

    Important thing to note is that Jimmy and team is staying onboard to continue to run the company the way we are used to things going.

    While I am skeptical/disheartened by this news as well, I trust Jimmy will ensure the TXMC name and experience remain the same as we are all used to. Name won’t change either.


    Just praying they don’t corporate BS a place with a model that is working extremely well and has been since their inception. I am staying positive that this will just expand the already stellar operation that Jimmy, Todd and team have built over the last 20 years.

        Do you know what the reason behind the merger was?

          Money. Either lack thereof, or selling out for capital gain.

                Considering they’re the highest revenue dealership in the world, it is absolutely not because of lack of money.

                    Oh no. I hope what you say is true Aric. We are running out of competent MC dealers.

                      Just because a balance sheet has a lot of income, doesn't mean that it's well managed. Just sayin. These items are completely independent. Remember MC Hammer??

                        I don't see how a corporate giant like Marine Max gives the flexibility to do the right thing for the customer like Tx Mastercraft does. Keep Jeff is spot on, but I don't see the flexibility he would need.

                        The new banner with the announcement is Paint on a Pig, People are great, but corporate "rules" will eventually be the end of what was great customer service. Merger? Cough. Marine Max bought them. I have seen this countless times in Cybersecurity, acquisitions, mergers, and it always changes the small/nimble startup into the culture and operating procedures of the acquiring company.

                          I am quite certain the information I am conveying is correct.
