The American Boatbuilders Association, one of the largest buying groups for independent boatbuilders, renewed its water heater contract with Whale Seaward for another four years.

The contract ensures that U.S. builders, including Chaparral, Cobalt, Grady-White, Monterey, Nautic Global Group, Regal Marine Industries, Pursuit, Tiara, Stingray and Thunderbird, will use Seaward by Whale-branded water heaters in their systems. Whale also will continue to collaborate with each manufacturer to create complete water system solutions specific to their installation.

“We are delighted to secure the ABA contract for another four years, and this is a testament to the focus on quality and reliability inherent throughout Whale,” Whale Seaward national sales manager Doug Stubbs said in a statement. “Collaboration is key for us, and we work closely with boat manufacturers to create systems that work for them — cutting installation times or modifying product to suit their installations. By securing the ABA contract we can continue to focus on innovating our water system products and, together, create better boating experiences.”

“Whale Seaward continues to provide high-quality products and excellent technical support to our members,” ABA president Jay Patton said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Whale Seaward on complete water systems solutions in the future.”
