Beneteau America named EB Marine as the exclusive Beneteau powerboat dealer for Gran Turismo, Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo in Venezuela.

“Selecting EB Marine to represent the Beneteau powerboat lines was an easy and logical decision due to their successful sales history with the Beneteau Groupe brands that are built in Cadillac, Mich.,” Beneteau Powerboats South America sales manager Antonio Castañeda said in a statement.

“We continue to leverage our dealer network wherever possible to expand our powerboat distribution throughout South America,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said.

“For us it means a great pride to represent a large manufacturer like Beneteau in Venezuela,” said Emilio Boschetti, owner of EB Marine, which has been in operation for 80 years. “We are taking on this challenge with the commitment it deserves because we are confident that together we will achieve big things.”

EB Marine will represent Beneteau Powerboats at the Feb. 16-20 Miami International Boat Show at Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin.
