Barletta Pontoon Boats, located in Bristol, Ind., and Walkers Point Marina, located in Ontario, Canada, have partnered to take Barletta international.
The company continues to assemble its network of exceptional dealers around the country, and is now excited to start adding high-caliber dealers in the Canadian market.
“We’ve have a very deliberate approach to adding new dealerships to our network,” stated Jeff Haradine, Barletta’s vice president of sales. “One of our guiding principles is too insure that if we are going to partner with a dealership, we are able to provide the resources and product necessary to form a strong, mutually beneficial partnership. The timing felt right, and the Walkers Point Marina is exactly the type of dealership we love to partner with. Todd and his crew are constantly looking to “raise the bar” in all aspects of their business and the service they provide their customers.”
Walkers Point Marina has been in the marine industry for 40 years and is located on Lake Muskoka. The original owners, Earl and Sharon Dunn, had established the location as a summer destination.
In 2018, the Dunn family passed the torch to the Palladino Auto Group out of Sudbury, Ontario. Newly appointed General Manager Todd Crowder has continued the legacy of exploring new and value-added services, expanded product lines, and growth in the retail shop for all their customers water sports and lifestyle needs.
“Walkers Point Marina believes that one of the best forms of marketing is a customer referral,” said Bill Fenech, Barletta president and co-owner. “The best way to get great customer referrals is to focus, constantly, on improving the customer’s experience from the moment they make first contact. Together, partnered with Walkers Point Marina, we hope to make Barletta Pontoon Boats the first and only pontoon boat you would recommend to your family and friends. We’re excited to bring the ‘Barletta Way’ to the Canadian market.”
