Virginia-based Volvo Penta has appointed Inversiones Bastilla de Caribe (IBC) Shipyard as a full-service dealer for its marine gas and diesel engines and drive systems in the Dominican Republic.
Located in Marina Chavon at Casa de Campo Resort on the DR’s south coast, IBC is also the exclusive dealer for Azimut and Benetti yachts, as well as Chris-Craft and other brands. The company’s shipyard has 100,000 square feet of working area, including a 120-ton travel lift, 25-ton motorized trailer, dock service for vessels of all sizes, including megayachts, and engine and mechanical repair facilities. IBC is part of IB Nautica Group, a network of boating businesses in the Caribbean.
“The appointment of IBC Shipyard is another step in our ongoing strategic plan to expand our sales and service distribution channels in the Caribbean,” said Marcia Kull, Volvo Penta vice president of marine sales for North America. “Mauro Caslini and his team at IBC have many years of dedicated focus on marine customer satisfaction.”
