AquaQuad's North American dealer tour has 32 confirmed stops, with room left for more, the company said.

“We're very excited about how many confirmed appointments we have lined up and are ready to create a strong dealer base in the U.S.,” Oliver Nudds, CEO of the South Africa-based company, said in a statement. “Our dealers and new sales reps will help define our success in North America.”

The tour will end in November at the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla.

In addition to expanding its dealer network, AquaQuad also signed two new reps to carry the line in North America. Marty Larsen will handle Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, and Tim Delaney will cover California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska and British Columbia, Canada.
