New president and dealers for Vanderbilt Luxury Pontoons

Vanderbilt Luxury Pontoons has appointed Patrick M. Delaney to the role of president. The news comes as the company reveals it has added several new US dealers to its roster.

Delaney has previously held positions at MTI Insulated Products (formally Teco, Inc.), International Truck and Engine, General Electric and Nidec Drive Systems.

“I am very excited to bring my years of experience in leadership, design, manufacturing, and continuous improvement to boating,” says Delaney.

“I look forward to continuing the development of innovative luxury pontoon boats. Being a boating enthusiast for most of my life, this opportunity allows me to spend each day leading this growing, talented team in an industry I enjoy as a hobby.”

Vanderbilt Luxury Pontoons has also added several new dealers to its ever-growing list of dealers representing the Vanderbilt brand. Now consisting of nine dealerships, the entire Vanderbilt dealer lineup is listed below.

  • All About Boats, Osage Beach, MO
  • Carefree Boat Sales, Buford, GA & Mooresville, NC

“We are extremely excited to continue growing our list of top-of-their-class dealers,” adds Vanderbilt Luxury Pontoons’ vice president of sales and marketing, David Hegel.

“We are incredibly proud to partner with these dealers. We know how integral they are to the Vanderbilt brand, and we are confident they are committed to the same values and goals as we are.”

Vanderbilt carries on the 75-year history shared with sister company Marathon Boat Group by selling boats in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia through an established network of dealer locations.

Earlier this year, the firm moved production to a facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana and assembled a new management team to move the company forward.
