    Chesapeake Ranger Tugs Under New Ownership

    Fluid Motion has announced a transition in the representation of its Ranger Tugs dealership in the Chesapeake region which will provide many benefits to the area’s trailerable yacht enthusiasts. Mark and Tony Schulstad, owners of Mass Enterprises and Cutwater Marine Sales have acquired Chesapeake Ranger Tugs formerly owned by Chuck Wistar. Cutwater Marine Sales is part of a yacht dealership based in Grasonville, MD, and Mark will retain the Chesapeake Ranger Tugs office in Annapolis, MD. Both locations will give customers access to Ranger Tug and Cutwater Yacht models.

    In addition to keeping the Annapolis office operational, Chuck Wistar will remain part of the organization in a sales, marketing and strategic planning role. His years as a Ranger Tug dealer in the Chesapeake region have resulted in a rapid expansion of owners in the Bay area and he will continue to serve Ranger Tug owners and prospects as well as Cutwater customers. The existing Cutwater Marine Sales team includes two dedicated sales associates as well as a service team headed by Tony Schulstad and is responsible for servicing, warranty work, electronics installations and maintenance and outfitting. The management of both companies under Mass Enterprises, LLC provides owners access to all these services out of the Grasonville location.

    As a joint business, Cutwater Marine Sales and Chesapeake Ranger Tugs will be responsible for sales and service for owners in the entire Chesapeake Bay region including the Baltimore/Washington, DC Metro area, Annapolis and the Delmarva peninsula. Mark Schulstad comments, “This is a perfect combination for us because we have tremendous support from Fluid Motion who builds both brands and we will offer that same seamless line of support to prospects and owners. There is a growing demand in the market for dependable, diesel, trailerable cruisers and we can now cater to a larger audience with Ranger Tugs as part of our repertoire.”

    Both brands will be on display at the Bay Bridge Boat Show, April 19-22, under ownership of Mark Schulstad. There will be a Cutwater 26 and 28 and Ranger Tug 21, 25 and 27 on display.
