Campion Marine adds dealers in Canada

British Columbia-based Campion Marine added four new dealerships.

RM Sport Marine in Val-d'Or, Quebec; Shawinigan Marine in St-Gérard-des- Laurentides, Quebec; Marina Sabrevois in St.-Anne-de-Sabrevois, Quebec; and Moose Jaw RV & Marine in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, recently took on the Campion brand.

"We are truly proud to have these excellent dealers join the Campion family," Campion president Brock Elliott said in a statement. “We are now building some quality boats to send to our new dealers in Quebec and Saskatchewan and look forward to having them represent the Campion brand. Our goal is to give our end customers the best buying experience possible, which can only be achieved with a top-quality dealership.”

Campion, a family-owned business, consists of Chase high-performance boats, Explorer sport utility boats, Allante runabouts and cruisers, Svfara wake and surf tow boats, Infinyte alternate energy boats and now Reinell runabouts and fish-and-ski models.

Campion provides floorplan financing through GE Capital and TCF Inventory Financing and is a founding member of Independent Boat Builders Inc., the industry’s largest purchasing cooperative.
