RIBCRAFT Selects Nautical Ventures as Exclusive Southeastern Florida Dealer


Dania Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2014 -- RIBCRAFT has chosen Nautical Ventures Marine Superstore as their exclusive dealer for Southeastern Florida. Until recently, this leading builder of professional grade rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) for safety professionals, military agencies, and recreational boaters, has sold its line of RIBs direct from its US-based headquarters in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Nautical Ventures is one of RIBCRAFT’s first dealers and will serve as RIBCRAFT’s official Distributor & Service Center for Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties.

“We’re very excited over this new business arrangement,” notes Roger Moore, CEO of Nautical Ventures. “We are one of the largest retailers of recreational tenders & inflatables in the country. Now RIBCRAFT affords us the opportunity to expand into commercial and additional recreational markets. We all saw the potential in aligning forces and we’re honored to be recognized as one of their first dealers of record in the U.S.A.”

Ms. Renee McCullers, sales director for NVMS’ tenders department, states, “RIBCRAFT will add a new dimension to our inflatable sales. Yacht owners these days are placing more punishing tasks on their tenders and pushing the recreational limits to more extreme levels. The commercial grade aspect of RIBCRAFT will exceed our clienteles’ expectations.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Nautical Ventures to promote the RIBCRAFT line or professional grade RIBs in Southeastern Florida”, said Matthew Velluto, RIBCRAFT Director of Business Development. “We are seeing more and more recreational boaters choosing RIBs when looking for a center console boat and with Nautical Ventures new 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art showroom and exclusive AquaZone® demo area, the RIBCRAFT brand will have prominent visibility in a marketplace with current owners and many potential new buyers.”

In addition to sales, NVMS will provide parts, service and warranty work from both the store location and their full service shipyard at River Bend Marine Center located nearby on the Ft. Lauderdale’s New River. It’s a good fit for all concerned.
