Blackfin Boats names Florida dealer

Publish date:

Blackfin Boats has named Nautical Ventures as its dealer for Broward County in Florida.

Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures, is no stranger to launching reborn boat lines at his Dania Beach, Fla., dealership — this will be the fourth in as many years.

The new line will debut at the Boca Raton Resort & Club today and Wednesday. New dealers, along with select media personnel, will get their first glimpse of four new center console models in 21-, 24-, and 27-foot lengths.

New 33- and 38-foot models will debut in 2018. They are a departure from their traditional past and have been redesigned from the keel up.

“We’re pleased to announce that Nautical Ventures has been selected as our official dealer for Broward County,” Blackfin Boats co-chairman Charles Marshall said in a statement. “Our selection process was very strict, choosing only the very best dealers to represent our line. We’re heavily invested in bringing these new models to market, partnering only with dealers who share our vision and passion to reignite the brand.”

“We’re excited to have Blackfin in our quiver of boat brands,” Moore said. “The relaunch is being brilliantly planned and executed, with the grand unveiling happening this November at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.”
