Dealers and Distributors


Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Fischer Panda and Wilde Yachts.

The U.S. office of Fischer Panda Generators announced it is opening a marketing, services and distribution operation in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The store will primarily focus on the Brazil marine market with long-term plans to serve as the South American headquarters.

"This will be a Fischer Panda U.S.-owned operation and will provide the same level of customer and tech service, spare parts, in-stock generators and warranty programs that we currently provide for our customers throughout North America," operations officer Ashley Rushton said in a statement.

The store is expected to open for operation in the second quarter.

Purchasers of a new, in-stock Nordic Tug or Ranger Tug from Wilde Yachts in Essex, Conn., will receive three years of free dockage and winter storage at a Brewer Marina near them.

If there is no Brewer Marina nearby, the deal applies to the local marina of the buyer's choice, OceanLines reports.

According to Wilde, the new promotion runs until March 15.

Only the Ranger 21 and Nordic 26 are excluded from the deal.
