MarineMax said it plans to partner with Galeon Yachts to introduce the brand to the US market. Galeon is based in Gdansk, Poland.
“We were determined to find a brand that could successfully compete with the more affordable pleasure yachts that recently began being imported in the market,” said Chuck Cashman, MarineMax executive vice president of sales, in a statement. “After extensive research and the recommendation of our friends at Volvo Penta, we discovered Galeon Yachts. After visiting the factory and seeing the models first hand, we were very impressed by the innovative designs from top naval architects such as the UK’s Tony Castro.”
MarineMax will carry 10 Galeon models from 38ft-66ft. The mega-retailer will be the exclusive dealer for Galeon in the US market.
