Volvo Penta named the Inversiones Bastilla de Caribe IBC Shipyard as a full-service dealer for its marine gas and diesel engines and drive systems in the Dominican Republic.

Located in the Marina Chavon at Casa de Campo Resort on the south coast of the Dominican Republic, IBC is in the Caribbean close to the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica and Venezuela.

IBC, part of the IB Nautica Group, is the exclusive dealer for Azimut and Benetti yachts, as well as Chris-Craft and other brands.

The company’s shipyard has 100,000 square feet of working area, including a 120-ton Travelift, a 25-ton motorized trailer, dock service for vessels of all sizes, including megayachts, and extensive engine and mechanical repair facilities.

“The appointment of IBC Shipyard is another step in our ongoing strategic plan to expand our sales and service distribution channels in the Caribbean,” Volvo Penta vice president of North American marine sales Marcia Kull said in a statement. “Mauro Caslini and his team at IBC have many years of dedicated focus on marine customer satisfaction. We are pleased to have IBC Shipyard as Volvo Penta’s newest member of our growing dealer network in this important region.”
