Lewis Marine acquires Jerry’s Marine

Oct 9, 2019 by Triton Staff

Fort Lauderdale-based Lewis Marine Supply has acquired Jerry’s Marine Service, which sells marine parts, engines and motor parts, and is an authorized dealer for Suzuki and Honda.

Jerry’s Marine, a family-owned business founded in 1971, has locations in Fort Lauderdale and Charleston, South Carolina.

“Adding the Jerry’s Marine Service business to the Lewis Marine Supply team is a foundational business opportunity,” said Chelsea Beyer, president of Lewis Marine. “Fort Lauderdale is our home base, and we will be even stronger in our home market. The addition of Charleston is a first step in an expanded geographic reach to better service customers. The Jerry’s product lines are complimentary to Lewis’, greatly enhancing our offering and allowing one-stop shopping for our customers.”

Jerry’s Marine owner Jon Lewis will stay on to lead the sales team.

“This acquisition gives us a great opportunity to offer more to our customers, but equally important is the cultural fit that our companies have,” Lewis said. “We are two traditionally family-run businesses who have always valued personal service and strong product knowledge. We are excited to join forces and grow as an integrated team moving forward.”

The business will operate as Lewis Marine Supply, while keeping the Jerry’s Marine Service name for motors and engine-related business. Jerry’s Marine location in Fort Lauderdale will relocate into the main Lewis Marine facility at 220 S.W. 32nd St. in Fort Lauderdale in the next few months. The Jerry’s Marine location at 3601 Meeting Street Road in Charleston will be rebranded to Lewis Marine Supply and continue to operate from that location.
