Bristol, IN -- Barletta Pontoon Boats, located in Bristol, IN, and Walkers Point Marina located in Ontario, Canada have partnered together to take Barletta pontoon boats international. With the successful launch of Barletta Pontoon Boats across the United States, it was just a matter of time before the “buzz” crossed the border into Canada.

Walkers Point Marina has been in the marine industry for 40 years and is located on Lake Muskoka, Ontario, CA. With a beautiful showroom, seven service bays, and the best ice-cream shop in the area, the original owners, Earl and Sharon Dunn, had established the location as a summer destination. In 2018, the Dunn family passed the torch to the Palladino Auto Group out of Sudbury, Ontario. Newly appointed General Manager, Todd Crowder, has continued the legacy of exploring new and value-added services, expanded product lines, and growth in the retail shop for all their customers water sports and lifestyle needs. In October 2018, Walkers Point Marina was recognized by Cobalt Boats as a Platinum Dealer, signifying the dealership as one of the largest and best Cobalt dealers in North America.

The Barletta team brings a unique customer-focused/dealer-centric approach that has been widely embraced as a breath of “fresh air” to the marine industry.

“We’ve have a very deliberate approach to adding new dealerships to our network,” stated Jeff Haradine, Barletta Vice President of Sales. “One of our guiding principles is too insure that if we are going to partner with a dealership, we are able to provide the resources and product necessary to form a strong, mutually beneficial partnership. The timing felt right, and the Walkers Point Marina is exactly the type of dealership we love to partner with. Todd and his crew are constantly looking to “raise the bar” in all aspects of their business and the service they provide their customers.”

“Walkers Point Marina believes that one of the best forms of marketing is a customer referral,” continued Bill Fenech, President & Co-Owner of Barletta Pontoon Boats. “The best way to get great customer referrals is to focus, constantly, on improving the customer’s experience from the moment they make first contact. Together, partnered with Walkers Point Marina, we hope to make Barletta Pontoon Boats the first, and only, pontoon boat you would recommend to your family and friends.
