Southport Boats Announces New Dealer Partnership in New Jersey

March 14, 2017 – For Immediate Release

AUGUSTA, MAINE – Southport Boats of Augusta, Maine has announced a new dealer partnership in New Jersey.  Southport is happy to introduce Hoffman’s Marina/Yacht Sales of Brielle, New Jersey as the newest dealer in their network, with the entire state of New Jersey as their territory.

Hoffman’s Marina is one of the oldest marinas in the country established in 1935, as well as being one of the most popular destination marinas on the East Coast for boaters and transients.   Hoffman’s Marina completed its renovations in 2012 including new docks, restroom facilities, the edition of a 77,000 gallon infinity edge pool, as well as reconstruction of the Union Landing Restaurant and Patio Bar.

This partnership allows Hoffman’s to introduce Southport to the entire New Jersey fishing community, a market that is familiar with and appreciates the pedigree of Southport. The combination of hull performance, beautiful lines, modern construction and a terrific reputation for customer service made Southport an ideal product for Hoffman’s to bring to their customers.  Hoffman’s Mike Buczkowski stated, “We are very excited to introduce the Jersey Shore Market to Southport Boats. We believe that the high quality and design standards that go into these boats will be extremely popular with our customers.”

For Southport, working with Hoffman’s and their strong customer base was an obvious fit.  “The Hoffman’s operation checked all of the boxes for us when it comes to dealers” said Jonathan Kirby, Marketing and Sales Director for Southport. He added “Their amazing location, facilities, restaurant, and existing customer base are all great factors working in their favor to be successful with Southport. We are very excited to see them hit the ground running.”
