Jeanneau reports successful Annapolis show

Jeanneau officials say they are encouraged by a report of up to 10 confirmed boat sales ranging in size from 36 to 57 feet at the United States Sailboat Show, which was held Oct. 8-12 in Annapolis, Md.

Company president Paul Fenn believes the sales are a combined result of the start of a long-awaited economic upswing and Jeanneau's strategy during the downturn.

"Last year was a challenge for all of us," Fenn said. "But we formulated a plan to stay visible in the market with our advertising commitments and presence at boat shows, and now we are beginning to see the results of these efforts."

Jeanneau had eight boats on display at the show this year.
