SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – Z Marine of North America – a subsidiary of Z Marine SAS, the world’s largest manufacturer of RIBs, inflatable boats, life rafts and safety equipment, and the world’s oldest and most recognized manufacturer of inflatable boats – announced that it is expanding its dealer network with the recent addition of Legendary Marine.
Legendary, the largest dealer on the Gulf Coast and named North America’s #1 Boat Dealer in 2012 by Boating Industry magazine, has four locations: Destin, Fort Walton Beach & Panama City Beach in Florida; Gulf Shores in Alabama.
“We are very excited to represent Zodiac Boats along the Gulf Coast,” said Legendary Marine General Manager Shawn Talpey. “We feel adding this brand to our product lineup compliments or current offerings. In just the few short months we have been a Zodiac dealer we have already received an incredible amount of interest with several deals closed. We originally thought that most Zodiac purchases would be for use as a tender for their larger yachts but have quickly learned that many of these purchases are being used for a wide variety of boating enjoyment to include watersports, cruising and even fishing.”
“Adding Legendary Marine to our growing dealer network is something we’re extremely excited about,” said Z Marine North America President Gary Durnan. ”These market locations and knowledgeable staff will help expand our brand in these areas, and we look forward to growing our partnership.”
