Boathouse Marine Center said it ramped up its offerings with the addition of Southport and Bluewater sportfishing boats.
The full-service marina and boat storage facility in South Florida will serve as the exclusive dealer for the two manufacturers’ full lines — representing Broward County for Southport and acting as the southernmost U.S. dealer for Bluewater.
Southport Boats, owned by Kenway Corp., based in Augusta, Maine, distributes through dealerships in the United States, Puerto Rico, Australia and Europe. Southport features three center console, deep-vee-hull offshore models designed by C. Raymond Hunt Associates.
Bluewater Sportfishing Boats, based in Fort Pierce, Fla., specializes in 21-, 23-, 25-, 28- and 35-foot center console deep-vee hull offshore sportfishing boats. Bluewater also features an inshore line. Owner and president Paul Skilowitz, through design techniques and weight distribution, has sought to create a well-balanced design in this class of boats.
Boathouse will display Southport and Bluewater boats as part of a customer special event from 5-8 p.m. on April 25.
In addition to selling new, used and brokerage sales, Boathouse is an authorized dealer and service center for boats powered by Yamaha, Mercury, Volvo Penta and MerCruiser and is an authorized dealer for Interlux yacht paints.
