B & F MARINE, INC, a family owned business, founded by my uncle Angel Barranco in 1961. It started as a small fiberglass, repair shop and selective marine accessory retail store in Miami.

By the mid 1980ís we were one of the first marine retail stores to open 7-Days. My uncle and my father slowly grew into two well-located marine retail stores in Miami-Dade County with dealerships for Johnson & Mercury Outboards, OMC, Mercruiser and Volvo Penta Stern Drives. Thus, becoming one of the largest independent marine retailers in South Florida.

It was not long before B & F Marine had grown into more than a two-man operation. At that time, my uncle and father had asked me to come on board to continue the business. Having a decade of business and banking experience in top management I took the step forward and became a second-generation family partner in the business.
 
Our modest growth continued, adding on an Aluminum boat line-Crestliner and two additional outboard lines: Yamaha and Suzuki.
