WestWinn Group, Vernon, BC, makers of Harbercraft, Kingfisher and Jetcraft all-welded aluminum boats has added Hillside Power Products, Traverse Bay, MB, to its list of Canadian dealers. Hillside unveiled the brand at the Mid-Canada Boat Show held at the Winnipeg Convention Centre March 4 to 7.
According to Kevin Linkletter, WestWinn's Sales Manager for Canada, Hillside is now carrying models from Harbercraft's Outboard and Jet Series. “We are excited to have Hillside Power Products grow our brand in Central Canada,” says Linkletter.
Grant Henderson, co-owner of Hillside Power Products, says his business, which already carries Ranger, Reinell, Sun Chaser pontoons and Mercury products, filled a gap in its lineup by adding the aluminum boat brand. “We deal higher-end fishing products,” says Henderson. “We have Ranger but we needed an aluminum line and Harbercraft makes a very good, durable product. With this new line we'll be targeting our northern communities, fishing camps as well as commercial customers.”
“So far our dealings with Harbercraft have been excellent,” adds Henderson. “Its staff has been very easy to deal with.”
Harbercraft also reported signing Upper Canada Marine in Havelok, ON during the 2010 Toronto International Boat Show in January.
