Grand Banks Yachts Appoints New Authorized Dealer in Croatia
Worldwide Dealer Network expands with addition of Jadran Nautika
– July 14, 2008 –
Grand Banks Yachts announced today the appointment of Jadran Nautika as the newest addition to its expanding network of Authorized Dealers around the world.
Jadran Nautika is known for an experienced and professional sales team, comprehensive service and after-sales support, and a strong track record of customer satisfaction among premium yacht buyers. With a headquarters in Zagreb and additional sales offices in Split and Portoroz, Jadran Nautika is well positioned to support the growing base of Grand Banks customers across the region.
"We are very impressed with the team at Jadran Nautika: their experience with top-line brands, knowledge of the market, and ability to stock new Grand Banks at their docks," said Neil McCurdy, VP of Worldwide Sales and Service for Grand Banks Yachts. "The fact that they offer maintenance, repair and a full menu of service support was also a strong factor in their appointment as an Authorized GB Dealer."
Located on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is highly regarded among boaters for its abundance of scenic, historic - and relatively undiscovered - cruising destinations. It has also proven itself an important emerging market for the industry, including premium brands like Grand Banks.
"We look forward to a successful new relationship with Jadran Nautika," said McCurdy. "They are a very important new member of our growing dealer network."
The appointment of Jadran Nautika marks the latest in a series of new additions to the Authorized Grand Banks Dealer Network. Since marking its 50-year anniversary in 2006, the company has expanded its global distribution network with the appointment of new dealers in Russia, the Ukraine, Japan, Turkey, France, Australia and New Zealand, among others.
