U.K.-based Nautibuoy Marine, a manufacturer of inflatable floating platforms, named Nautical Ventures as its U.S. reseller and will make its debut this fall at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The company said Clay Builder and Nina Anderson, the entrepreneurs behind the Nautibuoy product, received recognition for their design, winning a DAME Award at the METS Trade show in Amsterdam last year.
Since then, the couple have secured more than 20 resellers in key yachting territories across Europe, as well as signing an agreement with one of the U.K.’s biggest boatbuilders, the company said.
Launched in the U.K. in April 2015, Nautibuoy Marine’s inflatable platforms, which feature a patent-pending modular air-toggle connection system, have a range of uses from swim and sunbathing platform to a jet-ski dock or as a sturdy base for carrying out essential maintenance tasks.
“We are very pleased to have been chosen by NautiBuoy to represent their line,” Nautical Ventures CEO Roger Moore said in a statement. “We cater to a large yacht clientele who come to us for yacht tenders and toys. NautiBuoy will be the perfect complement for them to add to their quiver of yachting necessities.”
Nautical Ventures has locations in Dania Beach, North Palm Beach and Riviera Beach, Fla.
