Ontario-based Limestone Boat Company said it has added four dealers on the East Coast, bringing its total to 31 dealers in 44 locations in the northeastern U.S., Gulf Coast and Great Lakes region.

Three of those new dealers — Tiki Water Sports of Tavernier, Fla., Diamond Marine of East Haven, Conn. and Eagle Marine, located in Sagamore Beach, Mass. — will carry its Aquasport Boat brand. And Mark Zeigler Yacht Sales of Jacksonville, Fla. is now a Limestone Boats dealer.

“As we continue to grow and expand The Limestone Boat Company’s offerings, as well as the Limestone and Aquasport brands, we are extremely aware of the vital role that the dealers play,” said CEO Scott Hanson in a statement. “We are tremendously excited to add these dedicated and passionate dealers to the Limestone and Aquasport rosters.”

Earlier this year, Limestone completed the acquisition of Ebbtide Holdings, the manufacturer of the Aquasport and Boat Bay brands, gaining control of Ebbtide’s 145,000-square-foot facility in White Bluff, Tenn.

“We know that moving forward they will only add to the growth and elevation of both brands as we continue to expand our capacity,” Hanson said of the company’s new dealers.

In addition, Limestone said it continues to make progress on its partnership with Vision Marine Technologies, with models from both Limestone and Aquasport to be powered by Vision’s 180-hp electric outboard
