WICHITA, Kan. – Mid-America Powersports has been sold to the owners of nearby Marine World, who have taken over running the dealership and plan to continue operating it as a separate business.

“We felt it fit well with what we’re already doing,” Nick Blasi, who co-owns Marine World with Nathan Blasi, told the Wichita Eagle. “Marine World sells watercraft and some powersports. We felt that it was our chance to own all the brands together.”

Mid-America sells Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Kymco, Suzuki and Yamaha. Marine World sells Can-Am, Spyder and Sea-Doo and a number of boat marques.

Mid-America's owner Ross Reed reportedly had been looking to sell the business since July. The Blasi brothers had been his customers since childhood.
