Maple City Marine

Beneteau America announces the appointment of Maple City Marine based in Chatham, Ontario as exclusive Beneteau dealer for its powerboat lines Gran Turismo, Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo.

“We feel very fortunate to partner with Maple City Marine in southern Ontario for the distribution of Beneteau powerboats,” says Beneteau America President Laurent Fabre. “Maple City Marine has grown into one of the most reputable marine dealers in the region, and has been recognized by Boating Industry as one of the Top 100

Dealers in North America for the past three years. We look forward to working closely with their team to exceed customer expectations in every way,” remarks Fabre.

Founded in 1948 by Jim & Marion Rule, Maple City Marine remains a family-owned business that strives to provide the best possible customer service from sales to repair and maintenance. The dealership offers state-of-the art infrastructures including an indoor showroom, a parts & service center, and full-service finance department.

Rob Rule, Vice President of Maple City Marine, comments, “We have found in Beneteau’s product lines the perfect complement to our current portfolio of new boats, which already includes Groupe Beneteau brands Scarab and Four Winns. The three brands – Gran Turismo, Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo – differentiate themselves in many unique ways from the traditional North American offering our clients are accustomed to. Unique styling, great powerplants, and functional designs all equate to a great cruiser choice for any type of boater. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Beneteau and show the Ontario marketplace the appeal of each brand.”

Maple City Marine will represent Beneteau Powerboats at the Toronto International Show January 10 – 18 with Beneteau best-selling powerboat models, the Swift Trawler 34 and Gran Turismo 38.
