Jeanneau America added Louis Marine Ltd. of Westbrook, Conn., to the list of dealers representing its powerboat brands in North America.

“The Northeast is especially crucial to our growth since we’ve focused our product development toward versatile boats that are well suited to the demanding climate conditions of this region,” Jeanneau America powerboats division sales manager René Julien said in a statement. “We are both thrilled and honored to have a well-established partner like Louis Marine on our side.”

“While Jeanneau’s powerboats have long established a leading position in Europe and other markets throughout the world, the Leader and New Concept ranges were only recently introduced to North America,” Julien added.

He said Jeanneau looks forward to seeing Louis Marine represent its newest products at the Newport, R.I. (Sept. 13-16) and Norwalk, Conn. (Sept. 20-23) boat shows in the fall.

“We are confident that these Jeanneau product lines well complement our existing portfolio of powerboats,” Louis Marine president and owner Louis Bassett said in a statement.
