Wellcraft adds Alabama dealer

Wellcraft boats, a division of Groupe Beneteau, Cadillac Operations, said it has named Gulf Coast Boat Sales in Alabama as the newest addition to its distribution channel.

“It’s an exciting time to have Gulf Coast Boat Sales join our distribution team. We look forward to working with Hank Miner and the team at Gulf Coast Boats, as they will be a pivotal role in the future success and circulation of our Wellcraft products in Alabama and its surrounding areas,” Beneteau Americas sales vice president Andy Lindsay said in a statement.

Gulf Coast Boat Sales is in Fairhope, Ala., along the eastern shore of Mobile Bay and has been serving boaters along the northern Gulf Coast since 1950. Miner purchased the business in 1994 and expanded to a new 22,000-square-foot showroom and service center in 2000.

Gulf Coast Boat Sales is a five-star Yamaha dealer.
