Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about our company. On the surface, there are a lot of things that separate us from our competitor’s pontoon boats. There’s a bigger story, though, that I’d like to share...a story that really gets to the heart of who Barletta Pontoon Boats is, and why this will make a difference to you.

With over 30 years of experience in the RV industry, one of the things I treasured most, was the personal connections I, and my company, made with our customers and dealers. The ability to stay in touch with the needs of our customers, employees, and ultimately the products we built was really the secret to our success. Grand Design RV, a company started by my brother Ron, good friend Don Clark, and me, used a unique customer-focused/dealer centric business model that developed and fostered these connections. In just four short years, Grand Design RV achieved wholesale sales of over $500 million and became the most respected towable RV company in the industry.

As an avid, long-time boater, I entertained the idea of entering the marine industry for years. From a distance, I could tell that the marine industry was ready for a shake-up and our customer-focused approach would do just that. The timing never seemed right, though, until June of 2017, when a local manufacturing facility became available. An overnight decision a decade in the making, I secured the location for what would become Barletta Boat Company.

Just as in 2012 with Grand Design RV, Barletta Pontoon Boats started with a blank canvas, allowing us to do things differently than what has been done over and over again. We believe the end result is a product, and a company, that you will love.

Here are just a few of the reasons why Barletta Pontoon Boats are the right choice for you and your family:

  • Customer Focus 
  • Experienced Boat-Builders
  • Simple, yet Refined Products 
  • Quality & Construction
  • Raising the Quality Bar 
  • The Best Dealers in the Industry
  • Unequaled Customer Service

We are building pontoon boats that will make a difference in the industry, and ultimately, in your family’s experience. My goal is not to be the biggest pontoon boat manufacturer in the industry; my goal is to be the best pontoon boat manufacturer in the industry. I appreciate that you have taken the time to learn about our company, and would be honored to personally welcome you to the Barletta Pontoon Boat family.

With Warmest Regards,

Bill Fenech
