Galahad Marine Sales to represent Seminole Marine Group in Maryland
Galahad Marine, Florida-based owner and operator of marine related properties, is the exclusive dealer of Sailfish and SouthWind Boats in Maryland.
Cape Coral, Fla. – January, 2017 – Galahad Marine Sales, an investment group focused on marine and marine related businesses is the new, exclusive dealer of Sailfish and SouthWind Boats in Maryland.
Galahad Marine entered into an agreement with Seminole Marine Group to become the exclusive dealer of Sailfish and SouthWind Boats in Maryland. Galahad will carry the full line of Sailfish Center Console, Dual Console, Walk-Arounds and Bay Boats – ranging in length from 19’ to 32’. Galahad will also carry the full line of SouthWind Sport Deck and Hybrid Models – ranging from 20’ to 26’. These options will provide a flexible platform for a broad array of on-the-water activities.
Galahad will debut the Sailfish and SouthWind lines at the 2017 Baltimore Boat Show. “We were searching for a sport deck boat line for day boating enthusiasts on the Upper Chesapeake Bay,” said Dominic Nicosia, Owner of Galahad Marine. “Our searching led us to SouthWind Deck Boats. While reviewing the SouthWind line, we were also introduced to the Sailfish product line. We were immediately impressed with the quality of the boats and believe that this is a superior product at a better value than other boats in this class in this market. We couldn’t be happier that Galahad Marine will be the exclusive representative of these boats in Maryland.”
The Sailfish line was designed for anglers by anglers, but as the boating public has demanded more “softer” features such as comfortable bow seating, stow-away tables, retractable ski poles and abundant storage – Sailfish has stepped up to the plate and today offers the most family friendly, offshore boats on the market. “We believe that we have the right boat for the right time,” says Paul Hoppes, President of Seminole. “Boat buyers are demanding more overall value for their boating investment and Sailfish delivers both value and versatility.”
As far as SouthWind, “We truly believe in the potential of the deck boat market and believe that we have the right boats at the right time,” Seminole Marine Group founder Paul Hoppes said. “SouthWind deck boats and hybrids provide the value and flexibility to win over the next generation of boaters.”
