Stuart Farrell, managing partner with Tuckahoe Holdings, commented: “We are very impressed with Meeco Sullivan’s track record, operations and people and we are fully committed to investing and supporting its continued growth and longevity as a leader in the marina industry. At Tuckahoe Holdings we put people first and their enduring success and safety are just as critical as exemplary financial performance. We see a very bright future for Meeco Sullivan.” WORLD NEWS Freedom Boat Club heads for Europe USA: Freedom Boat Club (FBC) has signed an alliance agreement with French boatbuilder Jeanneau to cooperatively develop Freedom Boat Club franchises among its European dealer network. FBC is the largest boat club in North America and has over 150 locations in 29 US states and Canada. “We are very pleased to be working directly with Jeanneau in the launch of our successful boat club franchise throughout Europe,” said FBC president and CEO John Giglio. “Jeanneau and its dealers clearly understand and embrace the benefits of the sharing economy, and the boat club model specifically.” Based on current interest and development activity, Giglio expects to announce that multiple clubs are operational in France this quarter, with additional expansion elsewhere throughout Europe to follow. He believes the new international drive will be good for business but also very good for North America’s 30,000-plus FBC members and those who will join in other countries. “One of the most exciting aspects of this international expansion is our exclusive membership benefit featuring reciprocity,” he added. “Our Freedom Boat Club members around the world will enjoy full access to our fleet of boats wherever clubs exist, and that will now include international ports of call.” “The boat clubs are a real trend that our dealers are keen to develop,” confirms Jean-Paul Chapeleau, Jeanneau CEO. “For Jeanneau dealers, it’s a unique opportunity to benefit from an experienced partner while launching this new service to our customers.” - March/April 2018 9
