Clarks Landing Yacht Sales opens new location

Clarks Landing Yacht Sales said it will open a new sales location Wednesday on Kent Island.

Clarks Landing Yacht Sales, Beneteau's powerboat dealer in Maryland and New Jersey, said it will open a new sales location Wednesday on Kent Island.

“We are looking forward to opening a new sales office at Bay Bridge Marina in early 2017,” general manager Jeff Truesdale said in a statement. “This is the perfect location to grow our business and offer our customers a high-class facility to buy new Beneteau powerboats.

“The new sales facility will complement our two waterfront, full-service yacht yards in Chester and Shady Side. We will have a variety of models available on land and in the water to look at and test-ride.”

Clarks Landing Yacht Sales joined the Beneteau powerboats distribution network eight months ago.

"We have been very pleased with their performance and commitment in representing the brand,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said.

"We trust that this strategic move to one of the best marinas in Maryland will allow Clarks Landing to showcase our Gran Turismo, Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo yachts in a great environment and will ensure the best buying experience to customers.”
