Watermark Marine Expands with the Acquisition of Meredith Based Company – Production Trailer & Dock

Posted Mar 22, 2013

Laconia, NH – Watermark Marine’s vision to expand their marine related business exploded earlier this year with the purchase of the property on Union Avenue in Laconia, which has become known as “Old Burger King”.  Ultimately, this purchase launched many ideas for business expansion and opportunity to extend related lines of business not only with new retail space, but also continued growth of the dock and shoreline services given direct access to Lake Winnipesaukee.  Paul Goodwin, principle of Watermark Marine Systems, was excited to announce the recent acquisition of the Meredith NH businesses, “Production Trailer & Dock” and “Central NH Divers”.


Goodwin started discussions this spring with Howard Richards, owner of Production Trailer & Dock and Central NH Divers.  A buy-out agreement, whereby Richards will become the Retail Manager at Watermark, presented itself as a perfect fit not only for the launch of Watermark Marine Supply on Union Ave, but also for Richards given his extensive knowledge and vast experience in the dock and boating business.  “Howie’s retail experience and long term knowledge of boating and marine goods is ideal for our market area and will be instrumental in the growth and success that we are planning for the new Watermark Marine Supply,” shared Goodwin.  Additionally, Production Trailer & Dock’s existing dock and boatlift service will add to current Watermark shoreline construction and service operations.  “We have been working cooperatively for a number of years when Paul and I started discussing the possibilities of working together full-time.  It is exciting to become part of the Watermark team and I look forward to the full-line offerings our combined companies can provide,” conveyed Richards.


Watermark’s purchase of these Lakes Region businesses will broaden the level of services and products they provide across the lakes region – servicing all shorefront owner and boater’s needs at any level in marine supply, docks, boatlifts, and shoreline construction.   Renovations are presently underway at the 1218 Union Avenue location, with the Grand Opening scheduled for spring 2013.  The Rte. 3 Meredith location, where Production Trailer & Dock resides today, is where Watermark will operate for the winter until completion of the new “Ships Store” on Union Avenue.  Central NH Divers will also make the move to the new retail store.  The acquisition of this local competitor will offer an expanded line of high quality products and services that Watermark customers have grown to expect and enjoy over the past 20 years.
