Dealers and Distributors

This week’s roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Nautical Ventures Group, The Fossati Group and Global Ocean Security Technologies.

Nautical Ventures Group reached an agreement with Belzona Marine to be the exclusive dealer for Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties in Florida and the Caribbean.

Launched in 2012 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Belzona Marine introduced a 32-foot-wide-beam center console designed with innovative features and amenities that Nautical Ventures said had not previously been offered in a boat this size.

“When I first saw this boat, the huge port and starboard sliding doors caught my attention, along with its superior fit and finish,” Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, said in a statement. “I thought this model would offer a great ‘all-in-one’ alternative to our customers who are fisherman, divers and recreation family boaters.”

“With the towing package, these boats make great yacht tenders. Aside from the obvious advantages for fishing and diving, Belzona Marine’s easy-opening sliding doors afford people with disabilities an easier entry and exit point — a first in our industry.”

The Miami Lakes-based builder is a division of the 60-year-old parent company Belzona. It will be introducing a 32-foot walkaround cuddy later this year. A 39-foot center console and walkaround cuddy are on the drawing board.
