Jeanneau America announced that it has added Dunbar Yachts as its new dealer for South Carolina and Georgia for the distribution of Jeanneau sailboats and yachts.
“We are delighted to welcome Dunbar Yachts to the Jeanneau family,” said Nick Harvey, president of Jeanneau America. “We’re working closely with their team and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship. Adding a partner like Dunbar Yachts allows us to provide more coverage and support for our clients, which in turn strengthens our footprint in the North American market.”
“Adding Jeanneau was a great decision for us,” said Mike Bowie, president of Dunbar Yachts. “Jeanneau builds innovative, high-quality boats that are in demand.”
Dunbar Yachts has been serving sailors since the 1970s from its base in the Golden Isles, Ga. The new Jeanneau dealership fits with the owners’ expansion plans, facilitating the opening of a second office in Charleston, S.C. The Charleston office will make Dunbar Yachts the closest dealer to the U.S. factory.
“The benefit of close proximity to the Jeanneau factory in South Carolina is that our customers can conduct a full tour of the factory and a test sail in the same trip. Both of Dunbar’s offices are located in great getaway locations, which is part of the overall experience Dunbar Yachts wants to create,” the company said in a statement. “For many people, yachting is a getaway; the opportunity to create lasting memories. When people visit us, we want to give them a taste of what can lie ahead.”
