Hornet Marine, a builder of high-performance powerboats, announced that the brand received registered trademark status through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The trademark registrations protect the Hornet Marine name, as well as the company’s logo design.
“Receiving trademark approval is an important step as our company continues to grow,” company president David Hartmann said in a statement. “Our brand name and logo reflect our corporate identity and the promises we make to our customers. Receiving trademark protection will allow us to continue to deliver quality products and services to the boating community.”
Bristol, Conn.-based Hornet Marine was established in 2009, and it builds the Hornet 17, a customizable 17-foot sport runabout.
