Glastron adds Maine dealer

Publish date:

Expanding its dealer network in Maine, Glastron boats, a division of Groupe Beneteau’s Cadillac, Mich., operations, has named Branch Pond Marine as the newest addition to their distribution channel.

Located in Ellsworth, Maine, Brand Pond Marine has provided marine services in east Maine for 50 years at its family-owned dealership, offering routine maintenance, detailing, re-powers, delivery and winter storage.

“We are very excited to see Branch Pond Marine join our growing network of dealers. We look forward to working with Patrick and the team at Branch Pond as they will be essential in circulating and distributing a wide variety of Glastron products in coastal Maine and its surrounding areas,” said Beneteau Groupe sales vice president Andy Lindsay in a statement.

“We are excited to announce that we are bringing Glastron boats into our mix this year,” said Patrick Jude, principal contact for Brand Pond Marine. “Our freshwater camp owners will love the outboard and sterndrive powered runabouts from 18–24 feet and the deck boats in 20 and 22-foot layouts. The 18 and 20-foot jet options are something not many lines offer and will be a blast for the jet lovers out there; and the 25-foot cruiser will excite our saltwater users as well.”
