Boulder Boats, a Las Vegas-based boat dealer, will open a dealership at 33 W. Broadway Road in Mesa, according to a press release.
The dealership, planning to open in November, will employ 30 people at an average annual wage of $40,000. The company will occupy two acres and more than 24,000 square feet of showroom and service space. Boulder Boats is recognized as one of the highest volume dealers of new and used boats in the Western U.S., according to the release.
“I am thrilled to welcome Boulder Boats to Mesa,” Vice Mayor Christopher Glover said in the release. “The family owned business has made a significant investment in our community and I look forward to working with them and watching them grow in the coming years,” he said.
“We are pleased Boulder Boats is locating in Downtown Mesa creating additional momentum for investment and redevelopment in this important economic employment center,” Bill Jabjiniak, Mesa economic development director, said in the release.
Boulder Boats will be the exclusive dealer for Malibu Boats and Axis Wake Research in Arizona and will offer a wide selection of pre-owned boats. The Mesa dealership will be managed by long-time Arizona resident Dustin Duea, who brings more than 15 years of industry experience, according to the release.
“We are excited about our expansion into Arizona and have been overwhelmed with the reception that we have received from local boaters,” Stuart Litjens, Boulder Boats owner, said in the release. “We have a large customer base already in the greater Phoenix area and now we will be able to better serve them, as well as new customers and friends.”
