Hornet Marine, a new builder of fully customizable 17-foot powerboats, named Anchor Performance Sales as the second dealer to sign with the brand.

The partnership with the Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., dealership marks the second dealer committed to represent the Bristol, Conn.-based builder in the last week.

"We feel Hornet Marine will fill a gap in our product line for the entry-level performance boater," Anchor owner George Humann said in a statement. "Plus, Hornet Marine's product attracts other market segments, like the person looking at a personal watercraft or jet boat. The Hornet 17 is a nice alternative for these buyers."

Anchor will be displaying the Hornet 17, Hornet Marine's 17-foot sport runabout, at next month's Kansas City boat show.

Anchor also carries boats by Hustler, Spectre and Sonic.

Hornet Marine is looking to expand its dealer network in the coming year. For information about becoming a Hornet Marine dealer, contact Jason Bolas at (860) 516-3141 or jayb@hornetmarine.com.
