Nautical Ventures Receives Dealer Recognitions


Retailer and dealership Nautical Ventures announced that it received dealer-of-the-year awards from Axopar Boats, Flite electric hydrofoil boards and NautiBuoy Marine.

Axopar recognized Nautical Ventures at its annual dealer meeting in Mallorca, Spain. “Nautical Ventures has been the eyes and ears for Axopar in America for over six years, and we’re proud that our contribution has helped the brand be what they are today,” Nautical Ventures CEO Roger Moore said in a statement. “We’ve sold almost 500 Axopars since their introduction to the U.S. in 2016, and we’re very proud of the relationship we’ve forged with them.”

Flite founder and CEO David Trewern traveled to Florida from Australia to deliver the dealer of the year award in person. Nautical Ventures said it has sold more than 200 Fliteboards in the last 15 months and has an additional 200 on order.

“In addition to the individual riders who buy these boards, we’ve carved out quite a niche with the charter market and yacht owners who buy several Fliteboards to have in their quiver of yacht toys,” Moore said in the statement.

NautiBuoy Marine presented Nautical Ventures with its International Dealer of the Year Award at the Miami International Boat Show earlier this year. “When it comes to marketing our products in the United States, Nautical Ventures has gone above and beyond our wildest expectations,” NautiBuoy co-founder and sales director Clay Builder said in the statement. “Both in volume and unit sales, Nautical Ventures is number one in the world.”
