Welcome to Our Marine & Boat Division

We advise Marine dealers on the purchase and sale of dealerships that offer products from Bayliner, Tracker, Bennington, Lund, Sea Ray, Lowe, and much more. We manage the sale of your dealership from beginning to end, to ensure a smooth, quick, confidential, and rewarding sale of your business.


After 25 years, 700 transactions, and with a 90% closing rate, our reputation remains unmatched, and governed by the utmost ethical conduct, integrity and transparency. As the nation’s highest volume dealership brokerage firm, we remain a family-owned business, ensuring that every client gets the proper attention he or she deserves.

  • We charge a success fee only with no upfront fees, no retainers, and no reimbursement of costs.
  • Our engagement agreements are straight-forward, flexible, and with no fine print.
  • We do not hoard listings to build an inventory. We work hard to accomplish the goals of our clients and preserve their family legacies.
  • We vigilantly protect your confidentiality during the process and after.
  • We keep you in the know with regular updates on the activity flow.
We understand the decision to sell is complex, often emotional, and may even require a group consensus. To help you better prepare, we offer a complimentary opinion of value so that you may determine if now is the right time to explore an exit. Please call or e-mail to get acquainted and for more information. All communications will be held in strict confidence.


The sale of your business is the last opportunity for the assets to generate income for you. We maximize the value by creating a competitive environment among multiple buyers:

  • It ensures that you receive fair market value for your assets and your life’s work.
  • A sense of urgency and fear of loss are introduced, which expedite the process.
  • Buyer’s contemplation is validated knowing that other buyers are looking.
  • It ensures timely performance, fair negotiations and prevents the buyer from re-trading the deal.


As experts in marine dealership buy-sell activity, we are an active MRAA Partner Member and will have a booth at the annual Dealer Week Expo and Elevate Conference.

Jesse Stopnitzky, Partner & Director of Marine Division


“A lot of events in the previous couple of years led us to Jesse, and we are grateful God put that path in place for us. We couldn’t imagine going through this extensive and emotional process without him to help. Jesse and his team place value on finding the right buyer because they truly understand what it means to part with a business that your family built. Not only did he help walk us through the process, but he eased fears, gave advice, and stayed involved to help with anything he could the entire way. We highly recommend him and his team. Their experience was invaluable.”
Stephanie Pierce

“Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage assisted us with the sale of our 75-year-old family business. Jesse did not just become a business partner, but he took this to heart and worked diligently to vet out potential suiters and find a company that most closely met our criteria. Jesse genuinely showed complete respect, determination, and care throughout the entire process. In working with Jesse, it quickly became apparent that not only were we partnering with a genuine person, but a company that shares many of the same values and ethics that we do. If you want more than just a broker, but someone who is a true partner, then you have found just that in Jesse and Performance Brokerage. We highly recommend them both.”
David Hayes

“When I decided to sell and retire, it created a big dilemma for me. Who do I sell to? Who would be a good match for my dealership, my employees, and my customers? How do I contact them? And if I sell, I want the new owners to take care of my customers and employees the way I do. Jesse Stopnitzky at Performance Brokerage Services was an excellent choice. He was instrumental in getting my dealership aligned with the best match for my employees and my customers. His guidance through the entire process shows his strength and longevity in helping owners make the right choice in selling their dealerships. If you are considering selling a dealership, I recommend him very highly.”
Brad Scott

“After interviewing a few brokers, based on our discussions and our concerns, we really felt there was only one choice for us. That choice was Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services, who have sold over 700 dealerships across the country and are also family-owned. It was refreshing to find a broker that really listened and understood our concerns and what we were trying to accomplish. Jesse was very helpful in designing a plan that fit all of our needs for our family, employees and community. Jesse truly demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout every step of the process and hit all the marks in matching us with the right buyer. He helped make our transition as seamless as possible. I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and his family at Performance Brokerage Services to anyone considering selling their dealership.”
Dave Haylett

“When I first made the call to Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services, I was unsure of the process. As I began to see Jesse operate and experienced his quality of service, I became much more relaxed, which I appreciated so much. I had no idea the problems that would crop up, and Jesse did all he could do to help resolve them. I could not have done this by myself. His service was excellent and he was invaluable to me. If you are considering selling a dealership, I highly recommend the team at Performance Brokerage Services.”
Ronnie Hoelzer

“Jesse Stopnitzky and his team have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a lot of questions, uncertainty, anxiety, and stress, all of which Jesse helped us work through and helped us keep our sanity. Selling a 42-year-old family business is a tough decision, which Performance Brokerage understands. They explained the process and worked with us through every step. Had it not been for the professionalism, empathy, knowledge and experience of Jesse and his team, we would have never been successful in selling the business. They worked hard to understand our business history and what we wanted in a buyer, then found the perfect fit for us.”
Terry Sinkler

“Finding Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Service was the key to selling my dealership. Jesse was vested in a positive outcome from the start and never took his eye off the ball! His expertise brought me a deal within weeks and closed 90 days later. The time he took to get to know my family and me was an added bonus. Jesse’s integrity, perseverance and sense of humor sets him aside from the rest. I highly recommend Jesse and the Performance team to anyone considering selling or buying.”
