Sirocco Marine moves to Lauderdale

Aug 28, 2017 by Triton Staff

Inflatable boats dealer Sirocco Marine is moving from Dania Beach, Florida, to a larger facility at 3277 S.E. 14th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale [33316]. The new 72,000-square-foot showroom opens today with 300 inflatable boats on display, ranging from 10- to 36-foot tenders and recreational watercraft to commercial and government vessels.

“We’re excited to offer our customers hundreds of in-stock boats that are ready for immediate delivery,” Sirocco Marine owner Boyd Tomkies stated in a company release. “It’s a massive facility; our showroom alone is 16,000 square feet, plus we have a warehouse and a production area.”

Tomkies, a New Zealand native and longtime racing sailor, is managing partner of Fluid Watercraft, and Sirocco Marine Fort Lauderdale is the exclusive Florida dealer for Brig Boats, which officially entered the U.S. market at the 2016 Miami International Boat Show.

Sirocco Marine will be at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on Nov. 1-5, where Brig USA is hosting two booths: one for the new Eagle 10, which is making its U.S. debut, and one for the rest of the Brig model lineup.

Sirocco Marina also will host Triton Networking on Oct. 18 at its new facility.

Brig Boats, based in Kharkov, Ukraine and founded by aeronautical engineer Slava Rodionov 25 years ago, is Europe’s largest manufacturer of recreational RIBs.
