Walker Bay Boats expanded its presence in the European market this year with a new EU Central Warehouse, which will allow the company to ship small orders directly to dealers.

The company signed 26 new dealers in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark and is attending the Nov 19-21 Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam to continue finding new customers for its boat lines.

The company also is introducing new models in the Odyssey RIB line. The new Odyssey Supertender 325 was designed for the tender customer in the same RTM fiberglass construction as the popular Superlight boats.

Final testing is being completed, with the first preview set for the Oct. 31-Nov. 4 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
