Bristol, IN -- Barletta Pontoon Boats, located in Bristol, IN, and Long Lake Marina in Naples, ME, have agreed to partner together to bring the dream of Barletta Pontoon Boat ownership to the Northeast.
Established in 1999, Long Lake Marina has a long and storied history of growth, expansion, and award winning customer service. Long Lake Marina has and continues to partner with the best boat brands in the industry allowing them to become a full-service, one-stop shop for the New England boating community. The marina is headed up by Jim Davenport, one of the original owners, and employs a tenured group of knowledgeable and experienced marine professionals, including his son, James Davenport, who leads the Sales & Marketing division. Jim is active, and previously a board member, of the Lakes Environmental Association.
Long Lake Marina joins a distinguished list of almost 100 dealer locations in Barletta’s first full year of production. Recently, Barletta was recognized as a recipient of the 2018 National Marine Manufacturer’s Association (NMMA) Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) Award. The award is given to manufacturers who maintain a customer satisfaction rating of 90% or better for the calendar year.
“Long Lake does an outstanding job of separating itself from the competition by focusing on all the right things,” stated Jeff Haradine, Barletta Vice President of Sales. “Their company history is filled with national awards and recognition for customer service by some of the largest, and best, brands in the industry. And that’s where our paths cross - the customer experience. If you take care of the customer, the brand and the business will take care of itself. We’re excited to join Jim and his team at Long Lake, and welcome the opportunity to showcase Barletta in the Northeast.”
“At Barletta, an industry-best customer experience is an expectation and not a goal,” continued Bill Fenech, President & Co-Owner of Barletta Pontoon Boats. “Long Lake Marina’s company history is evidence that they are as committed to the customer as we are. And when you add a great dealership with a great product in Barletta, magic happens. We are excited about our future together with Long Lake Marina, and can’t wait to bring the Barletta experience to the New England boating communities.”
