Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Ocean House Marina, Hyundai SeasAll and Brownell Trailers.

Rob Lyons, president and CEO of Ocean House Marina in Charlestown, R.I., announced the addition of Scout fishing boats to its line of watercraft.

Scout offers fiberglass boats from 15 to 22 feet that are “perfect for the marina’s demographics of boat owners who love to fish, clam, crab and water-ski on the coastal inlets and salt ponds estuaries of southern Rhode Island,” he said in a statement.

“These boats do very well because they’re smaller, lighter and have a shallow draft, so they fit perfectly with what we need in our area,” Lyons added.

Other brands that Ocean House carries include Hydra-Sports, Maritime, Hurricane, Polar Kraft, Sunfish and Godfrey Pontoon Boats (Aqua Patio, Sanpan and Sweetwater).

Mazuria, based in Galiny, Poland, and Kuwait Development and Trading, based in Shuwaikh, Kuwait, were appointed as distributors for marine diesel engines made by Hyundai SeasAll.

According to Hyundai SeasAll director of international operations Ted Fagerburg, the companies were chosen because of their ability to provide after-sales service, their solid backgrounds and their financial strength.

Mazuria has been in business since 1994 and it carries a large selection of brands. It also represents Craftsman Marine, which makes small diesel engines complementary to Hyundai SeasAll’s range.

Kuwait Development and Trading is a Yamaha Outboard distributor and had been looking for a marine diesel line to complete its marine product mix.
