Wavecraft USA continues to expand the sales of its new product, the Waveblade, with the addition of two distributors.

Brownie's and Budget Marine will now carry the hand-held power maintenance tool, the company announced.

Brownie's YachtDiver stores include Brownie's Palm Beach Divers in Riviera Beach, Fla., and Brownie's Southport Divers and Brownie's Yacht Toys, both in Fort Lauderdale. Brownie's full-service stores specialize in outfitting yachts and boats with scuba gear, compressors, dive lockers, water toys and accessories.

Budget Marine also will carry the Waveblade. A retailer and wholesaler of pleasure boat marine equipment, Budget Marine is based in St. Maarten and its 12 shops serve numerous islands in the region.

"We are delighted to add two companies of such high caliber to our team," Wavecraft USA sales and marketing director Wendy Benge said in a statement. "These new partnerships will enable us to better connect with customers."

The Waveblade uses vibration to remove barnacles and marine growth and can be used as much as 15 feet underwater.
