ATX SURF BOATS WELCOMES FLX MARINE AS A NEW DEALER
Abilene, TX - ATX Surf Boats is pleased to welcome FLX Marine to its worldwide family of dealers.
FLX Marine is a 150-slip marina located on Cayuga Lake at Unions Springs, NY. The FLX name is linked to the Steamship Frontenac, which was the largest steamboat to operate on Cayuga Lake.

The Castelli Family built what is now the marina basin and ran the marina until the current owners purchased it from them upon their retirement over 10 years ago. FLX Marine has now expanded into the Rochester Boating Market by opening a sales location at 2121 Route 332 in Canandaigua to help more effectively serve our slightly more Western New York Clients.
FLX Marine caters to the Fingerlakes of Central NY including Oneida, Skaneateles, Owasco, Cayuga, Seneca, Canandaigua, and Keuka along with serving the shores of Lake Ontario in Northern Cayuga, Wayne, and Monroe Counties.
“We are excited to take on the ATX Surf Boats line”, says FLX Marine. “We are eager to take over the market for high-quality surf boats at a price point level. ATX brings an exceedingly well built, luxurious surfboat to our market truly in need of a line that is priced to sell.”
FLX Marine has a team of technicians, sales staff and customer support that prides itself on quality and relationships with their owners which is why they are an award-winning customer service marina.
