National Marine Suppliers recently acquired SXM Marine Trading located in the Isle de Sol Marina in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten. The new name will be National Marine SXM.
According to National Marine press release, owners Smiley and Elona, well known in the yachting community, have decided to retire and spend more time with family. National Marine SXM will continue to operate seasonally and will have staff from SXM Marine Trading as well as staff from National Marine Suppliers Fort Lauderdale on-site.
“We are flattered to have been offered the opportunity to carry on the strong and respected tradition that has been established by Elona and Smiley at SXM Marine Trading. This will allow National Marine Suppliers to better serve our customers through our newest location National Marine SXM and most importantly offer services that will keep vessels in St. Maarten for longer periods of time. Additionally we are honored to have the opportunity to partner with IGY Marinas and be member of the IGY Anchor Club,” said Dean Dutoit of National Marine Suppliers.
