Ravenna Marine was founded in 2001 by 12 stockholders and quickly became an award winning company. Nestled only 5 miles from West Branch Reservoir at Cotton Corners in Ravenna. Ravenna Marine started out in a one boat showroom. In 2004 the company was fortunate enough to purchase Roseland Lanes Bowling Alley. Quickly remodeling began, the bowling lanes came up the trees came down and the boats began to come in.
In January of 2006 the stockholders decided it was time to retire, the business was sold and in now owned by one individual.
Many changes have been made since then, including the expansion of the parts and service department. In 2007 the wall came down, between what was the old bar and now the 30 plus boat showroom. Pictured below: A couple of friends and longtime patrons, recount their experiences at the old bowling alley.
Many thanks to the Ravenna High.. School Art Department for the great job they did on the painting of the building.
Since then, Ravenna Marine has continued to grow and serve the community of boaters right here in Ravenna and across the globe.
