Marine Connection to offer Rinker Sport Boats and Cruisers

Marine connection is happy to announce the newest addition to its new boat line up: Rinker!

Rinker has been a market leader in sport boats and cruisers for decades. Nautic Global Group, parent company of Rinker, has long been a strategic partner with Marine Connection.

Our Hurricane Deck Boat sales performance has been growing tremendously; 80% to be exact, from the 2012 to 2013 model year. Our goal is to combine Marine Connection’s Ultimate Boat Shopping Experience with Rinker customers. Rinker’s line up starts from their outboard powered 18 feet bowrider and goes up to a 36 feet cruiser.

The Rinker 310 Cruiser is one of the most popular cruisers on the market today. The cockpit layout is extremely spacious and gives the users the feeling of a floating living room. Cabin features and finishes are at par with luxury brands that are way more expensive than Rinker’s. We see Rinker brand as the ultimate value in cruisers.

We will be stocking all of our cruisers 310 and up with Mercruiser’s Axius propulsion system. This allows users to dock their boats in any water conditions with the ease of a joystick.

We have a great 2014 model year to look forward with many new customers to join our family!
