Anchor Bay Yacht Sales Becomes Hunter Marine Select Dealer for the New Hunter 49

Share Article

Anchor Bay Yacht Sales, Inc. will be the only stocking dealer for the new Hunter 49 for Lake Huron and the Ohio shore of Lake Erie. The Hunter 49 is the flagship of the Hunter line. Anchor Bay Yacht Sales will provide sales support and hands on demonstrations for other regional dealers and their customers.

Hunter Marine has chosen Anchor Bay Yacht Sales, Inc. to be its Select eastern Michigan and Ohio dealer for its new flagship, the Hunter 49. As a Select dealer, Anchor Bay Yachts will be the only dealer stocking this yacht in this relatively large recreational sailing area which includes all of Lake Huron and the Ohio shore of Lake Erie.

The Hunter 49 represents a two year development on the part of Hunter Marine, the largest US maker of recreational sailboats. Impressive reviews from Sailing, Sail, Cruising World, and other sailing magazines, published after hands on testing from St. Augustine to Annapolis promise a bright future for this new cruiser on the Great Lakes. A luxurious passage maker with a versatile floor plan for total extended offshore cruising, the 49 offers a complete range of live aboard accommodations and entertainment features.

Anchor Bay Yacht Sales, a new company formed just last May, is the southeast Michigan Hunter dealer and provides a wide range of marine services including brokerage, used boat sales, and repair and maintenance. Their yard is located on the Clinton River in Harrison Township. "Becoming a Select dealer for this fantastic yacht is truly an honor for us, especially considering our new position in this industry," said Dan VandenBossche, President of Anchor Bay Yacht Sales, adding "we are proud that we will have it in stock and ready to demonstrate for the start of the 2007 sailing season."

Bob Scott, Vice-president and Sales Manager at Anchor Bay said, "With an overall length of almost 50 feet, plus a 14 feet 5 inch beam and 6 feet 9 inches of headroom, the 49 is a big boat with impressive interior volume. It will be a great boat for the Great Lakes." While Anchor Bay Yacht Sales is the Select dealer, other Hunter dealers on Lake Huron and the western end of Lake Erie will be able to sell the 49 with the assistance of Anchor Bay Yachts. Scott added, "As the stocking dealer, we will be helping all of our colleagues sell the new 49."
