Tender Care Boats LLC said today that it added Southport Boats center console models 272, 292 and 33 to its line of yacht tenders.

The Fort Lauderdale dealership said the addition will expand its offerings to include much larger center console tow-behind tenders for yachting customers.

“The Southport Boats addition brings a different type of boat to Tender Care Boats,” Tender Care Boats owner and founder Skip Reisert said in a statement.

“Southport will help us serve our yachting customers looking for tow-behind tenders by offering them three models from 27 to 33 feet. The addition of Southport Boats is exciting news that builds on the strong sense of quality and craftsmanship our customers have come to expect from Tender Care Boats. We now have an exciting new range of center consoles targeting the up-and-coming yacht tow-behind market.”
