Nautical Ventures Group signs distribution deal

Novurania of America, a yacht tender manufacturer, named the Nautical Ventures Marine Superstore its official distributor and service center for Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding South Florida area.

“We’re very excited over this new business arrangement,” Nautical Ventures Group CEO Roger Moore said in a statement. “We do a tremendous amount of business with tenders and inflatables on a global scale and we all saw the potential in aligning forces.”

Joining Nautical Ventures in connection with the move is Renee McCullers, Novurania’s previous sales director of its factory showroom. As Nautical Ventures’ sales manager for tenders and inflatables, her forte is sales and fulfillment of inflatables for yachts anywhere in the world.

“In my 10 years of selling yacht tenders this new position allows me to service my client base at the highest level,” McCullers said in a statement. “They will have ready access to our expert sales team, a full-service facility and a complete lineup of tenders and toys in stock. I expect Nautical Ventures to become the go-to place to get things done, done quickly and done right.”

“With Nautical Ventures’ new 13,000-square-foot state-of-the-art showroom and new floating docks, opening soon, our Novurania brand will have prominent visibility, along with a well-stocked parts department, a complete stock of the Novurania Deluxe line of yacht tenders and demo/display models of our diesel tenders that will be available for immediate delivery, and it’s all in close proximity to many of our customers,” Howard Rogers, of Novurania America, said in a statement.

“In addition, they will provide service and warranty work from both the new store location just north of Sterling and their River Bend Marine Center full-service shipyard location on the New River. It’s a good fit for all concerned.”
