Dealers and Distributors

Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Fluid Motion, Annapolis Cruisair, Sport Marine, Business and Engineering Trends and Redden Marine.

Fluid Motion, the builder of Cutwater Boats, expanded its dealer network with the addition of Bosun’s Marine as a New England dealer for the entire Cutwater product line.

Bosun’s has locations in Mashpee on Cape Cod, Mass., and in Peabody, Mass., and will make the Mashpee dealership the initial location for Cutwater sales.

Bosun’s will add a Cutwater 28 to its lineup of boats at the end of the summer and will exhibit the model this fall at boat shows.

“Several of the lines we offer are trailerable, but none offer the full range of liveaboard amenities of a Cutwater. A couple could comfortably spend long weekends on the 26 or 28. Simply put, these boats will help our clients spend more time on the water,” Bosun’s Marine owner Tim Leedham said in a statement.

Sport Marine has been established in the marine business in Cyprus since 1988. With headquarters in Limassol and branch operations in Nicosia and Paphos, it covers the southern portion of the island.

In addition to distributing Yamaha outboards and water vehicles, Business and Engineering Trends builds fiberglass boats.
