Publish date:

Ukrainian RIB builder Brig Boats said it has added Sirocco Marine-Lake Erie in Port Clinton, Ohio, as a dealer.

The company said the new location adds to its Sirocco Marine family of dealerships, which also include founding flagship facilities in Fort Lauderdale and Annapolis.

The builder said Sirocco Marine-Lake Erie carries the full lineup of Brig’s RIBs and Sirocco tenders as the builder’s exclusive dealer in Ohio and the Detroit metropolitan area.

Brig USA said consumers will be able to see the company and Sirocco at the Mid-America Boat Show in Cleveland, which continues through Sunday, and the Feb. 15-19 Miami International Boat Show.

Brig USA and Sirocco also will be at the Progressive Baltimore Boat Show (Jan. 25-28, Baltimore Convention Center); Detroit Boat Show (Feb. 17-25, Cobo Center); and the Progressive Atlantic City Boat Show (Feb. 28-March 4, Atlantic City (N.J.) Convention Center).

“It’s now the fastest-growing brand of inflatable boats in North America, as well,” Vince Palmeri of Brig USA said in a statement. “That’s exciting for all of us, and to keep up with this rapid growth, we’re actively seeking new dealers to join our network.”

Brig USA represents Brig inflatable boats and Sirocco tenders in the U.S., the Caribbean and Latin America.
