Northeast dealer Springline Yacht Sales is teaming with Elan, Impression and Catalina, adding to its lineup of Island Packet and Blue Jacket yachts.

Springline has representatives in Mystic, Conn., Mamaroneck, N.Y., and Quebec, Canada.

"Partnering with Elan and Impression is an ideal fit for Springline,” Springline president Rick Deiterich said in a statement. “What they have done for skiing they also bring to the boating world, with solid technology and technique. We look forward to years of innovation ahead.”

Springline is also partnering with Catalina Yachts, which it said has a completely redesigned 5 Series that includes the new 425.

"My goal was not to become the largest sailboat builder in the United States,” Catalina Yachts president Frank Butler said. “My goal was, and still is, to build good boats that are a good value. ... Accomplishing this requires planning, efficient manufacturing and well-designed boats. We are thrilled to have Springline as our newest dealer.”
