Ribcraft chose Nautical Ventures Marine Superstore as its exclusive dealer for southeastern Florida.
Until recently, Ribcraft sold its line of rigid inflatable boats directly from its U.S.-based headquarters in Marblehead, Mass. Nautical Ventures is one of Ribcraft’s first dealers and will serve as the company’s official distributor and service center for Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties.
Ribcraft builds professional-grade RIBs for safety professionals, military agencies and recreational boaters.
“We’re very excited over this new business arrangement,” Nautical Ventures CEO Roger Moore said in a statement. “We are one of the largest retailers of recreational tenders and inflatables in the country. Now Ribcraft affords us the opportunity to expand into commercial and additional recreational markets. We all saw the potential in aligning forces and we’re honored to be recognized as one of their first dealers of record in the U.S.A.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Nautical Ventures to promote the Ribcraft line of professional-grade RIBs in southeastern Florida,” Ribcraft director of business development Matthew Velluto said.
“We are seeing more and more recreational boaters choosing RIBs when looking for a center console boat, and with Nautical Ventures’ new 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art showroom and exclusive AquaZone demo area, the Ribcraft brand will have prominent visibility in a marketplace with current owners and many potential new buyers.”
