MarineMax Kick’s Off Brand Ambassador Program

What’s to love about boating?! The new MarineMax Brand Ambassadors are happy to tell. The Clearwater, Florida-headquartered company’s latest campaign highlights the joys of being on the water via real people, real pets and real experiences. The first three brand ambassadors were chosen this fall following an Instagram-based contest where MarineMax followers voted for the most enthusiastic boaters based on their submitted stories. These are: Scott Knoop, a Searay 330 Sundancer from Minnesota; Scott Fogleman, a Sea Ray 260 Sundancer owner from North Carolina, and Remy, the Mini Doodle, whose pawrents own a Blackjack 224 and take the pup frequently to the Bonito Beach Dog Park in Fort Myers, Florida.

“[Boating] is one of the most relaxing, rewarding, and fun thing I can think of doing in my spare time. We enjoy long leisurely cruises, or even short trips to a nearby restaurant along the ICW. We are fortunate to be able to share our love for boating with family and friends, and it is usually the highlight of many of our guests who visit us. Boating here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is typically year-round and we enjoy it as often as possible. We share our experiences through our actions and social media which I hope inspires others to get out and enjoy boating for themselves as well!” says Fogleman.
