Coastal Marine Engine and Canal Boatyard Sale Finalized

Roupp Acquisitions Inc is very proud to continue its success in the marine industry with the sale completion of Coastal Marine Engine Inc and Canal Boatyard LLC in Seattle, WA.

A stalwart in the PNW for over 25 years, Coastal Marine Engine has been a leader as one of 6 Volvo Power Centers in the US selling new engines, parts and service. As a complementary but separate business, Canal Boatyard handles the haul outs and storage for boat owners requiring work on their precious pleasure crafts.

We had multiple qualified candidates with multiple offers but were able to locate the best and final Buyer within 10 weeks of going to market. In the process Roupp Acquisitions noted several ‘first’ records including the first Buyer to tour the business being the ultimate Buyer to finalize the purchase.

The Seller commented, “We thank Roupp Acquisitions for keeping us on track during the sale our 2 companies. This was one of the most important transactions of our life and we could not have done it without their help.”.

We are thrilled with the future outlook of both companies and look forward to the Buyers continued success as they take advantage of the summer season.

Livingston Boats Sale Finalized

Happy New Year to all.

Last year was certainly not easy but in a challenging environment and within an industry down 65%+, we are very happy to announce the closing of Livingston Boats Inc.

An iconic boat manufacturer in the PNW since 1968, Livingston Boats is an 18′ and under catamaran shaped hull boat manufacturer known for durable, stable and safe boat designs.

After screening 35 buyer candidates, we were able to present our client with three purchase offers giving them the option to choose the best candidate to carry on the forty-year old Livingston brand.

The buyer commented, “Not only did Roupp Acquisitions do a great job for the Seller but they were a tremendous resource for us as well”.

We are thrilled with the future outlook of Livingston Boats and look forward to our clients continued success and ongoing relationship with the Buyer.
