Hamlin's Marina Welcomes Jeanneau Power Boats to Maine

A couple years ago, Josh Cottrell and I were down in Rhode Island at the Newport Boat Show.  The Newport Boat Show is an elegant affair, and I consider it the ultimate exhibition to people watch and gawk at power boats.

As we wandered around the docks, a certain boat caught our attention.  The handsome vessel carried a wide beam and had a pair of Yamaha F250s hanging off the transom.  I looked around for more information and learned that we were looking at a Jeanneau Leader 9.0.


Instant confusion.

9.0?  Must be metric?  9 meters...huh...

Jeanneau?  French? Made in Poland... What?

Leader...a Walk Around, a Center Console, a Cruiser????

It seemed as though Josh's mind was being bent as well because we were suddenly at a loss for words.  If you know Josh and know that we are never at a loss for words!  Finally we looked at each other, and we both came to same conclusion that we needed to get the Jeanneau line for Hamlin's Marina. 

Finally, a company that builds a boat for the Maine coast that provides both value and quality!  It took only about five minutes of us crawling around the Leader 9.0 to know that Jeanneau produces the perfect models for coastal cruising in Maine. 

Hamlin's Marina will be showcasing the most popular models from Jeanneau Power Boats in Portland, Maine at Fore Points Marina on May 15th & 16th.  Come take a test ride on an NC795, NC895, or Leader 9.0 at the newest marina on Casco Bay.
