Malibu Boats Welcomes Great Partnership And Exclusive Distribution In Alabama

Loudon, TN  | July 8, 2015 – Malibu Boats Inc. is very pleased to announce that OneWater Marine Holdings, which sells under the Singleton Marine Group (SMG) brand, is now the exclusive Malibu and Axis Wake Research dealer for all of Alabama. We are also excited to congratulate OneWater Marine and Rambo Marine. Rambo Marine is becoming part of the OneWater Marine and Malibu families. The two best dealers in the state of Alabama are now one, with five locations, serving every major Alabama lake.

SMG is a top-performing dealer for Malibu and has had customer-service scores in the top 10% since the inception of our partnership. Rambo Marine has been an inboard dealer for over 28 Years with multiple CSI awards and has consistently been listed in the Top 100 Dealers by Boating Magazine.

Malibu CEO Jack Springer says, “We are very excited. Now that Rambo Marine is a part of the Marine Holdings and Malibu family, you have two top dealers with appealing locations partnered to exclusively deliver the best and highest quality tow boat available. It is a tremendous win for customers in Alabama. It gives our customers an incredible choice of locations, and service that’s among the best in the United States. We could not be more pleased and excited about this partnership!”


OneWater Marine Holdings CEO Austin Singleton stated, “In partnership with Malibu, the top-performing towboat company in the world, we are excited to now offer an unrivaled experience for customers across the entire state of Alabama. With the addition of Rambo Marine to our OneWater Marine family of dealerships, the Malibu and Axis ownership experience in Alabama has taken a dramatic leap forward. For more than 25 years I have watched, listened, and learned from Scooter as he’s built his dealership in an adjacent territory to ours. I have admired his approach, appreciated his integrity, and considered him a mentor to me. I’m honored and excited to have him as a part of our team and believe he and his son Bennett, as well as the entire Rambo Marine team, will help OneWater seize the incredible opportunity that lies before us across the entire state of Alabama.”

Rambo Marine founder Scooter Rambo remarked, “We are very excited to join the OneWater Team. This partnership will enable us to offer an additional level of service to our customers never before achievable. It also gives us the opportunity to offer the number one selling inboard boat on the market, Malibu and Axis, at both our Huntsville and Birmingham locations as well as the new location at Smith Lake. On a recent visit to the Malibu/Axis plant, we were amazed at the quality, innovation and pride that goes into every new Malibu/Axis product. It is easy to see why Malibu is number one.”

This new alliance of passionate individuals looks to take Alabama to a new level. Malibu is the number-one watersports towboat in the U.S. and worldwide. SMG was already a top dealer, and the addition of Rambo Marine combines two very well run, family owned businesses into a model with several locations and exceptional customer service.
