Oceanair appointed Ocean Marketing as the exclusive U.S. marketing representative for its retail products, including ready-to-go blinds and shading solutions for boat windows, hatches, portlights and doors.

With more than 75 percent of the world’s boatbuilders offering Oceanair as standard equipment, the market for add-ons, upgrades and replacements is vast, and Oceanair and Ocean Marketing have worked closely to produce an effective aftermarket retail program that they will offer marine accessory retailers across the country, the company said in a statement.

“We’re delighted to be working with Oceanair in providing the United States with the Oceanair Retail Product Range, specifically designed for the marine environment,” Ocean Marketing CEO John Thommen said in a statement. “With our headquarters in Connecticut we have over 20 professionals in strategic locations throughout the United States to drive this new partnership.”
