The Larson Boat Group added nine new dealers since its last announcement in February.
Larson Boat Group president Rob Parmentier told Trade Only Today at the end of April, prior to the company’s official announcement this week, that the group had signed 28 new dealers since he became president last October.
“There have been a lot of good things happening — a lot of challenges, but I’m very optimistic about the future of both companies,” Parmentier told Trade Only.
The nine new dealers are selling and servicing any one or a combination of Larson Boat Group brands Larson, Larson FX freshwater fishing boats, Larson Escape pontoon boats, Striper offshore saltwater fishing boats and Triumph boats. They are:
• Interstate Auto and Boat, Black Hawk, S.D.
• Action Sports, Marshall, Minn.
• Les Motoneiges Ger Inc., St. Jean de Matha, Quebec
• West Shore Marine, Bristol, N.H.
• Hillside Honda, Lakeport, Calif.
• Brightwell's Boathouse, Des Moines, Iowa
• Walston Marine, Kinmount, Ontario
• Sovereign Marine, Stuart, Fla.
• Source One, Tampa, Fla.
“Our continued effort to expand our global dealer network partnership is a reflection of the efforts of everyone in Little Falls, Minn.,” Parmentier said in a statement. "We are working every day, leaving no stone unturned, to affect every aspect of the company from product development, sales and marketing, operations and manufacturing to transportation that touches, supports and affects our dealer partners. These efforts are being felt by our current dealers, resulting in new dealers wanting to be a part of this excitement and energy.”
