Volvo Penta signs deal with MarineMax dealerships in Florida

Volvo Penta named two MarineMax dealerships in Florida as servicing dealers for Volvo Penta engines.

Under the dealer agreement, the MarineMax locations in Clearwater and Miami will be authorized to perform engine maintenance and basic repairs on the boats they sell with Volvo Penta power.

“MarineMax has a reputation for exceptional customer service,” Volvo Penta vice president of marine sales for North America Marcia Kull said in a statement. “As MarineMax expands its product portfolio to include more Volvo Penta-powered boats, it makes sense for them to take responsibility for basic maintenance and service for their customer base. Given their experienced and capable service technicians, it was an easy decision to offer them a servicing dealership agreement. We expect to grow this relationship to other MarineMax facilities in the future.”

“We pride ourselves on meeting the very highest standards of quality, with exceptional brands and products,” MarineMax operations director Jim Shepard said. “Several of the Azimut models we sell are equipped with Volvo Penta power, and our new Aquila 44 catamaran is powered by twin Volvo D4 diesel engines, available for sale privately or in the MarineMax Vacations charter fleet. This new servicing dealer relationship with Volvo Penta will enable both of our companies to focus our combined resources on delivering an industry-leading boating experience to our customers.”
