Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from P1 Boats and Erwin Marine Sales.

P1 Boats signed an agreement with Slovenia-based Elan’s nautical division to represent exclusively its line of sailboats in California.

“We are very excited to represent such an outstanding European company as [Elan]. With the America's Cup race scheduled for the first time in San Francisco Bay for 2013, the focus on sailing has dramatically increased, not only in California, but throughout the United States,” P1 Boats president Peter Tsepeleff said in a statement.

“The Elan sailboats are an exceptional value, priced at 10 to 15 percent less than the top three sailboat brands in the United States,” he added.
