SkipperBud’s, based in the Midwest, is now the dealer for Beneteau’s Powerboats Division. SkipperBud’s will add the Gran Turismo, the Monte Carlo and the Swift Trawler lines to dealership portfolios in Eastern Michigan and Ohio.

A very good deal for both companies regarding the evolution of Beneteau in the USA and the location of the dealer.

“This is a natural evolution for or company, Beneteau is already a wonderful partner. We had been a large Four Winns, Glastron, and Scarab dealer throughout the Midwest for many years. We are excited to expand our product offerings in these markets.” Mike Pretasky, JR., President.

The 2019 model year inventory is on the way! Look for the Gran Turismo 40 and 46 in showrooms very soon. This fall the Swift Trawler 35 will make her debut in SkipperBud’s Midwest locations.

“We are delighted to include SkipperBud’s in Beneteau Powerboats network.” says Jean-Francois Lair, Director of Sales. “We share the same values with them which is a long established family business,” adds Jean-Francois.
