Beneteau LogoBeneteau America announced the appointment of Powerboat Sales Manager Justin Joyner during the Miami boat show. Joyner previously worked for Beneteau’s preferred finance partner, SGB North America, and therefore brings his expertise of retail and wholesale financing to the Beneteau America team.

The expansion of the sales organization will also improve support for theexpanding dealer network. “Supplementing our established team with Justin’s marine financing background will strengthen Beneteau America’s ability to help our dealer network get more deals closed,” commented Laurent Fabre, President of Beneteau America. “We expect 2013 will be an important year for Beneteau Powerboats as we continue to build our dealer network in response to strong interest in Beneteau’s multiple product offerings from the Gran Turismo, Swift Trawler, and Barracuda ranges to the new MonteCarlo line.”

The latest addition to Beneteau’s dealer network was also announced during the Miami boat show, with the appointment of CenterPointe Marine Services of Milwaukee, WI representing Beneteau Powerboats in the Western Great Lakes region.

“With three sales & service facilities in Sturgeon Bay (Door County), Milwaukee and Kenosha, the choice of a partner like CenterPointe Yacht Services was self-evident,” remarked Fabre. “CenterPointe’s unmatched facilities in the Great Lakes and excellence in customer care will ensure Beneteau Powerboats prospects and owners enjoy excellent service and personalized attention. Their encouraging performance this past week-end in Miami shows we have much to look forward to,” adds Fabre.

CenterPoint Yacht Services will introduce the new Barracuda 9, Swift Trawler and Gran Turismo lines to the Great Lakes at
the Chicago in-water boat show next June.
