Springline Yacht Sales wins New England show honor

Springline Yacht Sales was awarded Best in Show for its sailboat display at the New England Boat Show.

Springline Yacht Sales was awarded Best in Show for its sailboat display at the New England Boat Show, which the dealer said has grown into the Northeast’s largest indoor boat show.

“This was a special year because it was the North American debut for Elan and Impression Yachts,” Springline Yacht Sales president Rick Dieterich said in a statement. “Show attendees really appreciated the Elan and Impression; we are thrilled to have sold the first new Elan in the United States.”

The dealership said it also brought two Catalinas to the New England show and sold both of them, and a Blue Jacket 40, winner of Boat of the Year from Cruising Magazine.

Springline will be at the May 12-14 Connecticut Spring Boat Show in Essex with the in-water debut of Elan and Impression Yachts.

“We are looking forward to warmer weather and to highlighting the Elan products for their first North American in-water showing. Buyers are excited by the new boat line, and we look forward to helping sailors secure their dream,” Dieterich said.
