Mobile One Marine opened in 2002, literally as a mobile business where Murray would travel throughout the Westman and Parkland regions with his truck and trailer. Two years later, he ended up building a permanent location and opened a showroom and shop at 640 14th St. East. "Our core business is the marine industry. However, we pride ourselves on giving the very best in customer service, which has led to expanding the business further," he said. "We’ve seen the need to set the bar even higher by providing our customers (new and existing) with even more selection, better variety and even better service." With more than 35 years in the industry, Murray is doing what he knows best and what he loves, but he attributes much of the growth of his 13-year-old business to the team that he has working with him on a daily basis. "My team is my strength and without them this business wouldn’t go any further than it has. I love the challenges and now that we are expanding into new products, it’s exciting and rewarding at the same time," Murray said. In terms of growth, last year Mobile One Marine became the Manitoba dealer for Legend Boats, which expanded their selection into new aluminum and fishing boats, as well as pontoon boats. They are authorized dealers for Mercury Marine and Volvo Penta and they are looking at expanding into powersports, which includes quads, side-by-sides and motorbikes. "In addition to that, we expanded our parts and accessories lines and we are currently expanding our shop to include a new showroom that will highlight our product line of Legend Boats.
