Southport Boats adds Northeast dealer

DiMillo’s Yacht Sales has three locations in Maine — Portland, Freeport and Belfast — and a fourth in Glen Cove, N.Y.

Southport Boats, of Augusta, Maine, is partnering with DiMillo's Yacht Sales to carry its brands at the dealer’s four Northeastern locations.

DiMillo’s has three locations in Maine — Portland, Freeport and Belfast — and a fourth in Glen Cove, N.Y.

The DiMillo's group is partnering with current Southport dealer Navtronics Marine Group, headed by Tim Greer. Greer has been Southport’s top-performing dealer for two years in a row.

DiMillo’s also represents Maine builders Sabre and Back Cove Yachts and is a supporter of the Maine boatbuilding community.

"It is absolutely fantastic to sign on such a strong dealer, and one who bases their brand here in Maine, where Southport is built,” Southport Boats managing director Skip Robinson said in a statement. "Chris and Tim understand the importance of the Maine boatbuilding tradition and are going to be a major factor in our continued success in Maine and now in New York."

“After sea trialing the Southport 33FE, I knew DiMillo’s had to be involved with this product,” Chris DiMillo said. “The Hunt hull design, combined with Southport’s focus on stability, creates a ride that is beyond impressive. We pride ourselves in representing only the highest-quality product, and Southport is a perfect fit."
