The Association of Marine Technicians teamed up with iboats.com to launch a new Professional Installers Program.

This new service on iboats.com will help boaters find qualified marine product installers who live in their area, and who can help with the installation of new products as well as repairs to boats and engines.

“The Installers Program will be a tremendous benefit to boaters everywhere, as well as to the boat business,” said Bruno Vassel III, iboats co-founder and CEO, in a statement. “Helping boaters to more easily repair their boats and motors … is vital to the strength and growth of our industry.”

Joe De Marco, president of Amtech, said the joint program will help his organization as well. He said qualified sales leads are recommended directly to Amtech member businesses from iboats.com, which can also provide hard-to-find parts and accessories at discounted prices to Amtech members.
