Shakespeare Marine announces French distributor

Marine antenna design specialist Shakespeare Marine has appointed Kent Marine as its new French distributor.

With immediate effect, Kent Marine becomes the latest French distributor for the US brand. A leading distributor in France, Kent Marine has been established in the industry since 1974. It provides wholesale supplies for commercial ships, work boats, pleasure crafts and yachts, as well as technical guidance and bespoke solutions for solar power, heating systems and entertainment onboard.

“The partnership between Kent Marine and Shakespeare Marine is one that makes perfect sense,” says François Berson for Kent Marine. “We have been big fans of the brand for many years and are keen to formalise a partnership, making it a very welcome addition to our portfolio. We are looking forward to being able to offer our customers another premium and proven brand.”

First introduced to Shakespeare Marine in February 2022, Kent Marine became a distributor of industry-leading antennas earlier this month (June 2023).

Dave Manasseh, European sales manager for Shakespeare Marine, comments: “We are very proud of this partnership with Kent Marine. The brand has an impressive portfolio of contacts and connections, and we look forward to sharing new opportunities together as we enter a new market and new audiences. It’s an exciting time for both of our companies.”

It’s the latest appointment for Shakespeare Marine, which announced the appointment of its first Chinese distributor in April 2023 and confirmed a new Italian distributor in January.
