Maritimo Adds B & E Marine to Dealer Network


Australian luxury motoryacht manufacturer Maritimo has expanded its U.S. reach with the appointment of Michigan City, Indiana-based B & E Marine as a dealer partner.

Co-Founder Ronald Bensz started the company in 1953 with his friend Rolland Evett. A few years later he became sole owner and eventually sold the business to his two sons in the mid-1980s. Barry and Rod Bensz have continued in their father’s footsteps to foster the company’s commitment to excellence and community involvement. 

“The climate-controlled flybridge motoryachts will resonate well with boaters in our area, and the exciting new X-series, which has changed the world of sport yachts internationally, will also prove to be very popular I am sure,” Rod Bensz says.
