The Limestone Boat Company announced a relaunch of the esteemed brand back in September, with a reimagined lineup by industry vet Mark Ellis, known for developing Legacy, Abaco, as well as a host of sailboat brands.
In less than two months, Limestone has added 13 dealer locations in the U.S. and Canada for sales and service, including marine centers in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York and four locations throughout Ontario.
The complete list of dealers can be found here.
“During its history, the Limestone brand has experienced a loyal cult-like following in the Northeast, Great Lakes, and parts of Canada,” said Limestone CEO Scott Hanson in a statement. “As we set out to garner interest in representing our brand, we began our search of Class A dealers in these markets. We have been contacted by numerous interested parties since our brand re-launch announcement, and we’re honored by the excitement across the industry. This is just the beginning, as we are currently in discussions with additional dealers across the Southeast and Midwest.”
Manufacturing has been relocated to Tennessee to a 145,000 square-foot facility that allows for brand growth.
The company plans on offering nine models for the next two years from 17 to 29 feet, with runabouts, cuddies, center console and dual console models among the lineup — several with dayboat to fish-centric layouts. And while the vessels have traditionally featured sterndrives, the new models will utilize outboard power.
“We’ll continue to see market expansion across North America because dealers are quickly recognizing the attributes of the brand’s heritage, as well as the infusion of modernity into the product line,” said Limestone director of sales David Tawaststjerna. “Timeless design, big water performance, quality, and functionality, with a recognizable, unique deep V hull and forward flair that provide a forgiving ride and an unmatched assurance of safety. All key features for a discerning audience.”
