Little Yacht Sales was named the Texas dealer for the Marlow Hunter line of sailboats.

"We feel this is a natural progression for LYS to offer another line of new sailboats to the Gulf Coast to complement our current line of Catalina Yachts,” Little Yacht Sales owner Kent Little said in a statement.

"Marlow Hunter’s new owner, David Marlow, bought the company in July 2012 and since has taken a hands-on approach in the development and construction of new models unlike any previous management,” Little said. “To understand the inspiration and drive of David Marlow, look at his Marlow Explorer line of trawlers that are currently being built from 49 to 100 feet and how they have become a market leader in such a short time.”

The dealership will have a 37 and a 31 on order and available for spring delivery.
