Campion Marine Acquires Reinell and Bluewater Boats


Kelowna, BC-based Campion Marine has acquired Reinell and Bluewater Boats from Kal Kustom Enterprises, Fremont, California. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Campion, Reinell Brand will continue to build and market Reinell as its own separate brand.

"We've bought the assets including the brands names of the two lines,' says Peter Wingfield, Campion Marine's Designer. "We're going to be looking at what models we want to continue producing. We're going to continue on with the Reinell name for sure because the branding has been around for a long time. Over the course of the next month and a half we'll be bringing up the tooling and all the raw materials that we purchased.'

Reinell has manufactured family runabout boats for over 80 years and has a long history in the boat building business. Campion Marine is no stranger to boat building either, celebrating 40 years of boat manufacturing with the launch of its 2014 models on September 1, 2013.

Campion Marine builds several boat classes including Allante sport boats and cruisers, Chase high performance, Explorer sport utility, SVFARA wake and surf tow, and Infinyte alternate power vessels.

Brock Elliott, President of Campion Marine, welcomes the addition of Reinell and Bluewater brands and invites all current and interested dealers to the company's dealer meeting celebrations on August 25 to 26 in Kelowna, BC.
