Four Winns innovates again and again

Rec Boat Holdings, home of the Four Winns brands and part of the Benneteau group, just held their 2015-2016 Dealer Meeting in Sarasota, Florida. The company continues to demonstrate their commitment to innovation with not only a new boat series and new model additions, but a new meeting structure as well.

The new meeting structure offered dealers more information than ever before, with speakers and seminars included in the schedule.

InterMarine crew got to test drive the all-new Four Winns HD270, which will be available in both sterndrive and outboard options, and comes equipped with an enclosed head and other amenities for a comfortable day out on the water. This year’s dealer meeting also saw an addition to the TS series with the TS242, a larger version of the TS222. This boat line features the cutting-edge technology of Volvo Penta’s FWD Drive. Last but not least, we saw an addition to the Vista cabin cruiser series with the 255V, following in the footsteps of immensely popular 275V.

While the HD270 is part of a new line that will see new models in the future, the TS242 and the 255 Vista are tentatively scheduled to make appearances at this year’s Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, inside the Bahia Mar Marina on the H Docks. Look for slips 831-835 for a sneak-peek at these brand-new boats from Four Winns.

2015 Chaparral Dealer Meeting

InterMarine and Chaparral management at the 51st Chaparral Dealer Meeting.

Chaparral Boats held their 51st annual dealer meeting at the Vinoy Renaissance Resort in Petersburg, Fla this past August 12-14. InterMarine, Inc. was awarded a Top-Ten Dealer Award this year to continue our string of awards for outstanding boat sales. We are very proud of this accomplishment and grateful for all the support we receive from the manufacturers we represent.

This year’s dealer meeting with Chaparral was more product-focused than in the past and allowed for more hands-on time on the new boats. InterMarine crew was able to test Chaparral’s new Suncoast 230 and 210, the 237 SSX, and the 327 SSX.

In the words of Ann Baldree, VP of Sales at Chaparral…. “the 2016 model year is going to be a great year for all of us. Because… the best is yet to come!”

Being a Captain with Intermarine

Headshot of captain Tony P

 — Written by Captain Tony Pedraja

It has now been three years since I started my career with INTERMARINE and working with this team has been a very fullfilling experience.  Having worked in the marine industry as a self-employed Captain for the past 19 years, I was a bit nervous to transition into a role with an industry leader such as InterMarine.

I knew that any this change would present its own set of challenges, but from day one I realized that this company is operated by true professionals under the direction of General Manager Rick Dubois and co-owners Patrick Galipeau and Luc Thibault.

The staff at Intermarine, from yard crew to boat washers and marine techs, are all glad to be here and happy with the way they are treated. Sure there are hurdles here just as in any company, but it is easy to have a positive attitude knowing that management and coworkers are always willing and able to jump in and save the day for, or with you.  From Techs jumping in to help troubleshoot an engine, to a a fellow captain going that extra mile to make sure our customer gets his/her boat back in time for the weekend. Our team is highly dedicated to pleasing our customers to the best of our ability.

The boats we represent come from quality time-tested manufacturers, but as we all know, not all boats are perfect, especially for those that reside in this tropical environment, but I am continually reminded that I made the right decision when speaking with our customers and seeing how pleased they are with their newly purchased boats and our ability to serve their needs. In fact, I receive calls just about every day and weekends from customers asking a variety of questions such as if we have any captains available for a cocktail cruise,  fun destinations in the Florida Keys, good snorkeling spots, or if the weather is good for a Bimini crossing….and the infamous “why won’t my boat start!!!” (engines will not start if in gear).

One of my favorite things about my job is meeting and getting to know our customers. Many have become friends and often we go boating together, rafting up at sandbars or taking weekend trips to Bimini or the Florida Keys.  My friends constantly say that I am very lucky to have a job that involves working with a great team, running boats and making new friends. I am very lucky indeed.
