Fairline dealer adds Chesapeake sales office

Fairline Boats’s longest-serving U.S. dealer, Total Marine, is expanding with new offices in Annapolis, Md.

Already trading as Fairline New York and Fairline New England, Total Marine will now also have a Fairline Chesapeake office operating from the new location in Port Annapolis Marina.

Established in 1971, Total Marine provides boat sales and servicing in East Coast boating destinations, including Connecticut, New Jersey and now Maryland.

Total Marine is a family-owned dealership and marina operator jointly managed by John and Tom Caruso.

Fairline Chesapeake dealer principal Jim Renfrow partnered with the Carusos in 2010 in an expansion move by the company after holding executive-level positions with yacht manufacturing companies, including Fairline.

“The expansion of Total Marine into Maryland is the direct result of our recent retail success,” Renfrow said in a statement. “We currently have three Fairlines on order for our customers; a Squadron 50, Targa 38GT and what will be the first Targa 48GT delivered into the U.S. Our customers appreciate the superior build quality of the Fairline range, the boats’ elegant looks and their ability to hold their value in the market.”
