Z Marine of North America, a subsidiary of RIB and inflatable manufacturer Z Marine SAS, is expanding its dealer network with the recent addition of Legendary Marine.

Legendary has four Gulf Coast locations: Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City Beach in Florida, and Gulf Shores in Alabama.

"We are very excited to represent Zodiac Boats along the Gulf Coast,” Legendary Marine general manager Shawn Talpey said in a statement. “We feel adding this brand to our product lineup complements or current offerings. In just the few short months we have been a Zodiac dealer we have already received an incredible amount of interest, with several deals closed. We originally thought that most Zodiac purchases would be for use as a tender for their larger yachts, but have quickly learned that many of these purchases are being used for a wide variety of boating enjoyment to include watersports, cruising and even fishing.”

“Adding Legendary Marine to our growing dealer network is something we’re extremely excited about,” Z Marine North America president Gary Durnan said. ”These market locations and knowledgeable staff will help expand our brand in these areas, and we look forward to growing our partnership.”
