Beneteau America added Clarks Landing Yacht Sales as its powerboat dealer in southern New Jersey.

Clarks Landing owns and operates a boatyard, marina and event space in Point Pleasant, N.J., and will have Beneteau powerboats on location this summer as the company’s new yacht brand in the state.

”We are pleased and fortunate to welcome Clarks Landing Yacht Sales, New Jersey, to the Beneteau powerboat family,” Beneteau North America powerboat sales manager Justin Joyner said in a statement. “We are working closely with their team to exceed customer expectations in every way. We are very excited with the North American response to our Swift Trawler, Monte Carlo and Gran Turismo powerboat products. Having a partner like Clarks Landing allows Beneteau to continue our growth into the North American market.”

“Our Point Pleasant location has been searching for a boat line that fits our vision for future growth. We are excited to announce that we found it with the Beneteau line of powerboats,” Clarks Landing general manager Michael Longhi said.

“Beneteau is known for building luxurious yachts with a simple design and layout that is less expensive than most of its competing brands. Anyone interested in a sport yacht or yacht needs to come see the new Beneteau models available at our location,” Longhi said.
