First Eagle Alternative Credit agented a $30 million FILO term loan to West Marine, an omnichannel provider of aftermarket products and services to the boating, fishing, sailing, and watersports markets in the US, to support the company’s execution of their business strategy.

Founded in 1968 and based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, West Marine has 236 retail locations across 38 states and Puerto Rico with close proximity to over 3,900 marinas. West Marine provides customers access to supplies and accessories, service parts, electronics, fishing and recreation and apparel/accessories.
