Broward Trailer of Hialeah, FL, builder of high-quality custom boat trailers, is making moves to grow its business on a number of different fronts.
Until now, the company has sold its trailers direct from the factory, but with more demand for better trailers to haul bigger boats, Broward is making moves to grow its business. “Thanks to today’s economy, we are seeing the largest and heaviest center consoles, catamarans and other high-end boats ever built,” says Broward President Jim Nall. “Customers need premium trailers to safely haul these very expensive boats and we are here to help them.”
Broward Trailer is now partnering with dealerships and boat builders. One key to expanding its presence in this marketplace is by hiring of Mark Bonafide (formerly of Evolution Trailers) to spearhead the effort. Bonafide brings more than 25 years of sales experience with dealerships, boat builders and trailer manufacturers to Broward Trailer, where he is now Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
“Broward Trailer has prototyped and built trailers for high-end brands like Cigarette, Donzi, Fountain, Nor-Tech, MTI and Outerlimits, and has a huge range of designs on file,” Bonafide says. “With Broward’s 3D trailer design we can quickly design new trailers for a perfect custom fit.”
Adds Jim Nall: “People want custom choices such as steps and ladders, tool boxes and drive guards, and if you can dream it, we can do it. We build and design trailers to last. With our full fab shop we can build custom aluminum boat cradles for dealers and marinas. We also build commercial haulers for transport companies who use our trailers day in and day out. That says a lot about our quality.”
Broward is best known for building custom bumper-pull type trailers and gooseneck trailers, but told Powerboat Nation that the company is in the process of constructing its very first tilt trailer for a customer who will take delivery of his 46-foot Outerlimits at the beginning of next year.
