Coty Marine said it has promoted Dave Patnaude to general manager.

Patnaude was promoted after the dealership, which is based in Toms River, N.J., hired Barry Costanzo as its new sales manager. Costanzo spent the past seven years at one of the largest Sea Hunt dealerships in the country.

“Dave and Barry will work together to take the dealership to the next level, and I couldn’t be more excited,” dealership owner Richie Coty Jr. said in a statement.

“Barry’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge will make him a key addition to the Coty Marine family,” Patnaude said. “We view his appointment as a sign of our commitment to continue being one of the leading boat dealerships in our industry.”

Coty Marine said that for the past two years it has been the top-selling Monterey Boats dealer in the country and a Platinum dealer for Key West Boats and a Gold dealer for Avalon luxury pontoon boats during the same period.
