ALACHUA, Fla. – Hunter Marine Corporation, part of the Luhrs Marine group, said yesterday that it has formed an exclusive partnership with SailTime, to exclusively offer the Hunter 33- and 36-foot sailboat models to members of SailTime’s global network of fractional sailing bases.
SailTime currently has 10 bases in the United States including: Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Tampa, Boston, Austin, Lake Texoma, Jacksonville, San Diego, and the Channel Islands. Discussions are currently underway to open at least a dozen more bases throughout the U.S and Europe before the 2004 sailing season gets into full swing.
“This is a great opportunity for Hunter Marine, we see SailTime as a revolutionary approach to growing our market that will appeal to sailors of every skill level,” said John Peterson, Hunter’s director of sales and marketing. “This partnership will provide daily access to new boats for those who cannot have a boat of their own. Our product features, dealer network, and customer service resources are a perfect match for SailTime, and we look forward to getting more people out sailing with this innovative program.”
