Jeanneau America adds Southern dealer

Jeanneau America has named Dunbar Yachts, which has locations in South Carolina and Georgia, as a new dealer for sailboats and yachts.

“We are delighted to welcome Dunbar Yachts to the Jeanneau family,” Nick Harvey, president of Jeanneau America, said in a statement. “We’re working closely with their team and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship. Adding a partner like Dunbar Yachts allows us to provide more coverage and support for our clients, which in turn strengthens our footprint in the North American market.”

Since the 1970s Dunbar Yachts has been working with sailors in the Golden Isles, Ga., area and is adding Jeanneau at the same time that the company is opening a second office in Charleston, S.C.

“Adding Jeanneau was a great decision for us,” said Mike Bowie, president of Dunbar Yachts. “Jeanneau builds innovative, high-quality boats that are in demand.”
