A South Carolina car dealer is adding boats to his inventory.

Palmetto Ford of West Ashley, in conjunction with Sea Fox Boats, plans to park some boats on its truck lot by year's end, the Post and Courier newspaper reported.

Palmetto Ford will sell the boats at its Truck World operation and is considering adding them beside its Quick Lane automotive service shop in Mount Pleasant, said Graham Eubank, president of the family-owned car dealership.

"I think there is an opportunity there to represent their boats in a little bit better way," Eubank told the newspaper. "It's a great line, and they have a lot of neat products. Their new bay boats are really nice and will do really well here. We will be the only dealer from Beaufort to Orangeburg to Georgetown."

The new boat ventures would operate as Sea Fox Boats of Charleston and Sea Fox Boats of Mount Pleasant, but the inventory will be owned by Palmetto Ford, said Fred Renken, president of the boatbuilder.

"I will sell the boats to him," Renken said. "We will offer our full support and training."

The business arrangement came about after Renken severed ties three weeks ago with Hankel Marine, which had been the exclusive dealer in the Charleston region for Sea Fox Boats.
