The best way to get your boatyard back on the water is to sell it, a former Marine Corps officer told Fortune.
“You’re not going to make money,” said Robert H. Jones Jr., an ex-Marine Corps pilot who has owned a boat yard for more than 40 years.
“But you can sell it.”
Jones, a Marine Corps veteran, is now president of the Marine Leasing Company, an Arlington-based company that has more than 1,000 boats in its fleet.
“The boatyard is an asset to the local community,” Jones said.
“It’s a community asset.
You want to make sure it’s going to stay around.”
Jones started the company with his wife in 1996, when he and his wife bought a $25,000 boatyard in Virginia.
Now Jones runs the company as president and CEO, with the help of his son.
Jones’ company is owned by the Jones family and employs about 250 people.
Jones said he wants the boatyard to stay in Arlington.
“I think it’s important to have a strong community presence,” Jones told Fortune by phone.
“When I’m in Arlington, I feel like it’s a place that people want to hang out, that they want to come visit, and I want to be able to do that.”
The Marine Corps Marine Lease Company is a privately held company owned by former Marine Corp. pilots Robert H Jones Jr. and his son Robert Jones Jr.(Courtesy of Marine Leases Company) Jones said the Marine Corps is the best asset in Arlington because of the high number of boats in the fleet and the local area.
“If you have a large number of Navy and Air Force ships, it’s not easy to get those to come to Arlington,” Jones explained.
Jones is in charge of the company’s operations, including hiring staff, hiring vendors and setting up a fleet.
Jones runs a fleet of 20 boats and ships, including a large fleet of F-16s.
He also has several smaller boats and boats, including one for his son, Jones said, and a fleet that includes two other sons.
The Marine Leased Company operates from a warehouse in Arlington that is leased by the Marine Corp to its customers.
It’s owned by Jones’ family and Jones’ son, and it’s in the process of being sold.
“We’re not really sure where it’s at yet,” Jones admitted.
“Right now, we’re trying to sell the boat yard.”
Jones said his son and the other members of his family have taken the boat yards business to new heights.
“They are just at a level of excitement,” Jones added.
They’ve done this for 40 years, and they want the opportunity to continue.” “
This is their life.
They’ve done this for 40 years, and they want the opportunity to continue.”
Jones also said his sons are eager to help in any way they can.
“One of my sons is a pilot, so he is helping me in any ways he can,” Jones revealed.
“My son will do anything I need him to do.
And that includes just making sure we have all of our ducks in a row.”
Jones added that he believes Arlington is the most diverse and attractive town in the country.
“There are a lot of people that live in the area, and the people of the community, it really is a place you want to live,” Jones stated.
“And I’m sure if you go to Arlington, you will find the same thing.”
Jones and his company recently purchased a new boatyard at a former military installation, located about two miles (three kilometers) from the Marine base.
The new boat yard is located in Arlington and will be used by Jones and the Marine Lase Company to produce and ship its boats.
Jones explained that he will sell the property and help to finance the purchase.
“That’s the most rewarding part of the business,” Jones continued.
The new land is owned and leased by Jones. “
In my opinion, it just makes sense to do this because Arlington is an amazing community.”
The new land is owned and leased by Jones.
He said that when the Marine Marine Leasers buy the property, they will use it to make a new pier that will house the new boatyards.
“At the end of the day, we want to create something special in Arlington,” said Jones.
