The man who truly lived life 'full throttle'
Larry Goldman, former President and Owner of the company, founded Extreme Marine, aka Xtremepowerboats. Goldman had a successful career on (and off) the water since the age of 21. Goldman received his first boat at the age of nine and thus began his love for boating. He earned numerous World and National Offshore Racing Championships and built a legacy within the high-performance boating community. Goldman was a permanent fixture at all major Poker Runs, charity events, and the Miami and Fort Lauderdale Boat Shows. Goldman was known to support his customers every step of the way and was known to spend countless hours helping boaters in need.
In 1991 Larry Goldman opened a Mercruiser Dealership and Service Center in Sunny Isles Marina. Later in 1996, Goldman started Extreme Marine, in Miami, Florida. As the business grew, Goldman relocated Extreme Marine to North Miami to expand the rigging and sales end of the industry.
Through the years, Goldman and Extreme Marine have been featured in countless articles, Television Shows, and movies. The more recent ones being, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a segment on CNBC’S “Secret Lives of The Rich and Famous,” and on Good Morning America and Nightline News in an episode discussing boating safety.
In the summer of 2017, Larry Goldman passed away unexpectedly. His legacy lives on and continues to shine throughout the boating industry. He left his mark and now, his wife Jodi, daughter Jilian, and son Jacob, as well as the dedicated Extreme Marine team, including Fran Rittner who has been with the company since 2010, have continued on with keeping Larry’s dream alive with Jodi now at the helm of the operation.
