Beneteau America said it named Castaways Yacht Club as its representative for Beneteau powerboats in the Long Island Sound, Long Island and northeastern New Jersey areas.

Beneteau said Castaways, in New Rochelle Harbor, is a full-service facility and marina in its 50th year of operation. It has a secondary sales office in Sag Harbor, N.Y.

Justin Joyner, powerboat sales manager for Beneteau in North America, said Castaways had a successful start at the Fort Lauderdale boat show, with numerous boats on order, including Beneteau’s flagship, the Monte Carlo 6.

“Castaways Yacht Club represents exactly the type of partners that we are continuing to seek out in order to augment the current distribution network,” Joyner said in a statement.

“We are confident they will excel in their mission to connect customers looking for a world-class production boat with Beneteau — a name already famous for its sailboat tradition and rich with 130 years of building boats.”

“Representing a prestigious product like Beneteau and having the support of a financially sound company who understands the needs of our customers is a unique chance,” said John Novak, Castaways’ sales director. “With Beneteau’s impressive portfolio of express cruisers, trawlers and flybridge motoryachts, we couldn’t be better equipped to meet our clients’ satisfaction — beyond their expectations, as always!”

Castaways will represent Beneteau powerboats at the Feb. 11-15 Yachts Miami Beach and will take part in debut events surrounding the launch of the Gran Turismo 40, Gran Turismo 46 and Swift Trawler 30.
