Reliant Yachts of Newport, R.I., said it created a service yard partner network that will provide its customers with coverage from Maine to Florida.

“When Jim [Ewing] and I started the company, we knew that we had to make a commitment to excellence, from the sales cycle through the design, build, delivery and lastly — and far from least — service,” Reliant Yachts principal David MacFarlane said in a statement.

“Our customer base extends up and down the coast and we need a service base to meet their needs,” MacFarlane said. “We are not just providing a product. We are providing a lifestyle, and the peace of mind that comes with great service is vital to a great yachting experience.”

Reliant Yachts said it has created a network of service yards in Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

“There’s nothing quite like owning a Reliant, and it’s an experience you deserve to enjoy every time you get behind the helm,” MacFarlane said. “Each boat is designed to meet Reliant Yachts standard of excellence, and we feel this same rigorous standard should be applied to service.”
