Zodiac names new VP, debuts Web feature

Zodiac of North America announced a new vice president for the company, as well as a new micro Web site that compares fuel usage and horsepower differences between its RIBs and similar-sized center consoles.

Gary Durnan was promoted from director of Canadian operations to vice president of the recreational division for North America.

“I’m looking forward to our new consolidated operations that unite U.S. and Canada operations under a single roof,” Durnan said. “It will help us be more responsive to our dealers and customers on both sides of the border.”

Durnan will be on hand at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show — Bahia Mar Yachting Center/Hall of Fame Marina Booth No. 1057 — between 1 and 3 p.m. Friday.

In other news, Zodiac of North America announced the launch of a fuel comparison Web site at www.savefuelkeepboating.com.

“We’ve seen that the rising price of fuel has affected sales and even the usage habits of boaters across North America,” Durnan said. “Our RIBs use half the gas of similar-sized alternatives, while providing better rides, competitive performance, and unprecedented seaworthiness. We felt it was important to let consumers know they have more fuel-efficient boats to choose from so they can maintain their boating lifestyle.”
