Brig Boats Enter U.S. market in Fort Lauderdale
DANIA BEACH – Brig Boats has officially entered the U.S. market and announced the grand opening of its founding dealership in the country. In December, Sirocco Marine Fort Lauderdale opened the doors to its 10,000 square foot showroom and warehouse in Dania Beach.
Kharkov, Ukraine-based Brig Boats is a European manufacturer of recreational RIBs. Founded by aeronautical engineer Slava Rodionov nearly 25 years ago, Brig Boats are now sold in more than 60 countries through an exclusive distributor network.
Sirocco Marine carries the full line of Brig Boats, as well as Sealegs Amphibious Boats, Fluid Watercraft and Honda Marine. Visitors can see up to 100 boats from 10 to 36 feet in length, ranging from tenders and recreational watercraft to commercial and government vessels.
At Sirocco Marine’s helm is owner Boyd Tomkies, a New Zealand native and longtime racing sailor with many years of experience in the inflatable boat business. He owned Annapolis Inflatables in Maryland for five years and is managing partner of Fluid Watercraft.
“I’m honored to be appointed the exclusive Brig dealer in Florida,” Tomkies said. “I think boat owners and crew will appreciate Brig’s high quality and competitive pricing, and I’m very much looking forward to working with the marine industry here in South Florida.”
Brig Boats’ model lineup includes the Eagle Series, the Navigator Series and the Falcon Series. In 2016, Brig USA is expecting delivery of several new models, including a 33-footer. To learn more about Brig USA visit www.brigusa.com
