marquisMarquis embodies perfection in the art of yacht building.

Marquis’ Corporate headquarters and yacht yard are located in the inland seas region of the United States where generations of skilled craftsmen have been building the world’s finest yachts and ships since the early 1800′s.  This heritage runs through the veins of all who work at Marquis, bringing an experience and passion to their craft unmet anywhere else in the world. Each Marquis is hand built by a team of vastly experienced yacht builders and technicians who are as passionate about building the finest yachts… as you are in owning one.

The prestige of the Marquis brand has been earned by building substantial vessels regarded by experienced yachtsmen throughout the world as superior in styling, design and construction. A Marquis reflects not only your sense of style but also your ability to own the best built yacht of its kind.

Marquis quality is strikingly different.
It is typical for other yacht builders to outsource the design and installation of electrical and plumbing systems as well as cabinetry construction, upholstery fabrication and other critical components. In doing this they are, in essence, assemblers of other company’s products and are limited by their supplier’s capabilities, timeframes and quality standards. Marquis is unique and superior because they build nearly every subcomponent and critical system themselves, and are immersed in every minute detail in the creation of each vessel.The results are yachts with the ultimate in distinctive style, unmatched fit and finish and proven operational reliability.

This quality and uncommon attention to detail says a lot about the Marquis brand and the person who owns one.

Legendary Marine is proud to sell and service Marquis Yachts!

skeeterSixty years have passed since the first Skeeter was first built, which just so happened to be the world's first bass boat. Since then, Skeeter has been setting the standard, raising the bar and leaving the rest of the boating industry in a wake of innovation.

It was way back in 1948 that Holmes Thurmond designed and launched the first Skeeter boat. By no means was it the last "first" for Skeeter. In 1961, Skeeter built the first bass boat from fiberglass, a huge leap forward in performance and durability. Then in 1975, Skeeter introduced the "Wrangler," the first V-bottom bass boat ever built. As time passed, Skeeter introduced a host of other innovations: the first full-length rod box, the first bass boat rated for a 150 HP, and the first to introduce "space age" composite materials with the X-Treme and X-Cel composite construction. From then on, cutting-edge technology and attention to detail have been the key ingredients of securing value for long-term owner satisfaction.

It's evident that Skeeter's philosophy, "engineered like no other," permeates everything they do.  Skeeter's pursuit of perfection has become clearly evident as the best engineered bass boats on the water today.

Legendary Marine is proud to sell and service SKEETER!

About Us

Legendary Marine Story

Legendary Marine was launched in 2001 in the Destin, FL market with a vision to deliver a truly legendary experience for boating enthusiasts in the Northwest Florida Panhandle. Our original owners brought together a championship blend of experience in both the hospitality and marine industries, with the concept of creating a world class dealership facility that offered a much higher level of professionalism and customer service than found in traditional boating circles.


As the vision unfolded, Legendary Marine gained significant momentum as boaters embraced the new facility, coupled with a pleasing sales and service experience. That driving focus on delighting the customer remains intact and has propelled the dealership to a nationally ranked Top 100 dealer status, along with earning a bevy of accolades throughout the region. For many sequential years, it has been voted "Best in Boat Sales & Service" by the readers of Emerald Coast Magazine and Destin Magazine, as well as "Finest Boat Sales & Service" by readers of the Northwest Florida Daily News. Legendary Marine has been distinguished for outstanding sales and service by many of its manufacturers across multiple product and segment disciplines, and won the coveted title of "Dealer of the Year" by Boat & Motor Dealer Magazine.  Managing Partner Fred Pace attributes 100 percent of the dealership's widespread success to a highly committed team of professionals who share the founders' vision and work every day to deliver a legendary boating experience.


As the Destin location's success unfolded, so did exciting new opportunities for growth. Four additional dealership locations have come aboard over the years, including Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and Gulf Shores, AL, along with a Value Center that was launched in 2012 in Destin to accommodate select new boats, premium pre-owned boats, and consignment units.


In addition to boat sales, service and marina dealership locations, Legendary Marine has also expanded its operation and extended its brand in other endeavors.

Fred Pace, Managing  PartnerLegendary Marine has emerged as one of the finest and most well respected boat dealerships in the nation, for good reason: its vision remains laser-focused on delivering a truly superior experience for its customers, in all aspects of its business.


In 2012, Legendary Marine was named #1 dealer in the Top 100, achieving the prestigious and highly coveted "Dealer of the Year" designation as voted by the editors of Boating Industry magazine!


Legendary Marine and its staff is poised for continued future growth, and all invite you to become a valued member of the Legendary Marine family!

of Legendary Marine, named North America's #1 Boat Dealer in 2012 as voted by the editors of Boating Industry magazine. Under his direction and  leadership, Legendary Marine has consistently earned top national and regional performance ranking, capping with this most recent pinnacle of achievement. Besides the coveted 'best dealer' award for the U.S. and Canada, Legendary Marine is an eight-time consecutive Boating Industry Top 100-ranked dealership, former recipient of Boat & Motor Dealer magazine’s prestigious annual “Dealer of the Year” designation, ten-year “Best of the Emerald Coast” winner for boat sales & service, two-time recipient of “Finest on the Emerald Coast for Boat Sales and Service” by the readers of the Northwest Florida Daily News and most recently, winner of the BEST IN DESTIN magazine for boat sales and service.
