Two large firms say they are now partnering to bring a greater boating community together in Northwest Florida.
Emerald Coast Marine is merging with marina North Light Yacht Club to create the Emerald Coast Marine Center (ECMC).
“Our goal is to provide our clients with the most personalized, responsive and enjoyable boating experience possible, both oceanside and dockside,” said Shawn Talpey, who founded Emerald Coast Marine with partner Keri Doscher in 2015.
They say the partnership creates better boat sales, services, rental, marina and yacht club experiences for boaters all across the panhandle.
They add the next few months will reflect the new vision and enhancements for ECMC.
The partnership is also planning to launch the Emerald Coast Water Sports in the spring, which will have a rental/boat club to provide affordable ways of owning a boat.
