SIBS 2023: Marathon Leisure adds Kicker Audio to portfolio
Celsus UK, the European distributor for Kicker Marine Audio, has confirmed Marathon Leisure as its wholesale partner for the UK marine market.
UK-based marine equipment distributor Marathon Leisure says it has added Kicker Marine Audio to its growing electronics category giving their dealer base access to Kicker’s premium quality boat sound systems.
The co-operation is to be officially announced at the 2023 Southampton Boat Show (15-24 September 2023), where visitors to the Marathon Leisure stand J399 in Ocean hall can experience the sound quality of the Kicker products first-hand.
“We are very excited to be working with Oliver and his team,” says Celsus UK managing director Paul Baker. “As we enter into a new phase for Kicker Marine Audio in our domestic market I am confident that we can achieve great things; delivering exceptional audio for boaters and great service and profitability for dealers.”
Marathon Leisure was acquired by Alliance Marine Group, the French recreational boating and marine equipment distributor, in 2021.
Oliver Cook, managing director at Marathon Leisure, says: “We are thrilled to be adding Kicker Marine Audio to our product portfolio.
“We are excited to be offering the ideal audio solution to our customers, supported by our continuous high levels of service and technical expertise, we look forward to showcasing the systems at the boat show.”
