Marina Lennox

Sept 15, 2020

We are extremely pleased to welcome Marina Lennox in our North American dealer Network.

As we have recently announced (Press conference, June 3rd) our group has strong ambitions to grow in North America, for both our brands Dufour and Fountaine-Pajot. This goal is of course supported by a very dynamic product plan, but we also appreciate the value of the dealers in order to gain market share.
“We are honored to partner with Marina Lennox in Quebec” says Laurent Fabre, representing the Group in North America, “as Jean-Francois and Chantal have developed over the years a solid reputation for expertise and service in a very demanding market. We have been working together on the Dufour line for a few years, and we believe that they will also help us grow our Fountaine Pajot line rapidly”
Indeed, Marina Lennox has been representing Dufour along with Jeanneau and Lagoon for many years, and great success. They have now chosen to focus exclusively on DUFOUR, and Fountaine Pajot (SAILBOATS) starting August 2020. Marina Lennox will represent our 2 brands for the province of Quebec.
As Jean Francois (Marina Lennox dealer principal) puts it “Chantal and I started Marina Lennox 10 years ago, after we completed our own trip sailing around the world. We believe that this dream is accessible to most of us. They just need preparation… and a solid boat. We love the quality and reliability of the Dufour sailboats. We also know how fast the catamaran market has been growing and we need to partner with the team that is leading the pack! Fountaine Pajot has been developing fantastic sailboats over the years and we are proud to represent them in Quebec.”
Chantal and Jean-Francois will meet our customers in Bandol VIP days at the end of this week, and hopefully in Annapolis in October.
