Fairline Boats Comes to Tennessee
Fairline Boats has announced the appointment of a used authorized dealer in Tennessee. Aquaknox Marine Sales, trading as Fairline Tennessee, will operate from its offices at Shanghai Resort Marina in Lake Norris, located close to the Tennessee River. This appointment is part of Fairline’s continued commitment to building its worldwide dealer network in 2014.
Established in 1996 and owned by father and son, Dalan and Bryan Courtney, Aquaknox provides boat sales and servicing for recreational boaters in Tennessee. Located on Norris Lake, the largest reservoir on the Tennessee River, Shanghai Resort Marina is a coveted holiday destination, with peaceful, turquoise water and surrounded by rolling hills. Tennessee provides access to thousands of miles of waterway, as the Tennessee River flows into the Mississippi River, the third largest river system in the world.
After the appointment was initially unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show in February, Fairline Tennessee launched to the local Tennessee market at the Knoxville Downtown Boat Show (March 6-9). The dealership is the sixth to join Fairline’s growing network across the U.S., which already covers Florida, California, New York and Michigan.
Bryan Courtney, co-owner of Fairline Tennessee, commented: “We are excited to be representing Fairline in Tennessee, as there is currently no other luxury European boat brand in our part of the country. We are confident that our customers will be receptive to the elegance and superiority of the Fairline range and the brand’s impressive level of luxury and engineering. Located as we are, surrounded by a vast inland network of lakes and rivers, our customers are looking for the kinds of boats that you typically find on the ocean. Ours is a beautiful waterway for warm weather boating and the perfect environment for a Fairline.”
James Robinson, sales director at Fairline Boats, said: “We are delighted to welcome Aquaknox Marine as our used dealer for Tennessee. Not only is the dealership situated in a beautiful lakeside location, it represents an important development in Fairline’s expansion in North America — a region within which we are committed to growing our presence. At Fairline, we put a great deal of emphasis on ensuring our dealers have an in-depth understanding of the industry and are capable of providing a world-class service for customers.”
