Suzuki Marine USA Partners with Camping World and Gander RV & Outdoors and Forest River

June 2021 News

Suzuki Marine USA, LLC has announced an exclusive business partnership with pontoon manufacturer Forest River. Through this  partnership, Forest River’s new line of Nepallo Pontoon boats will be paired exclusively with Suzuki 4-stroke outboard motors, providing  boaters, fishermen, and outdoor enthusiasts with state-of-the-art, reliable power for all their family adventures. 

Suzuki-powered Nepallo Pontoons will be available and exclusively sold at select Camping World and Gander RV & Outdoors locations.  The Nepallo pontoon boat line will include a range of feature-packed models from 18 to 24 feet, each built with the quality, attention  to detail, and thoughtful features outdoor enthusiasts have come to expect from Forest River products. Suzuki, The Ultimate Outboard,  provides the performance and fuel economy needs of boating families with its range of innovative and feature-packed outboard  models. Initial model offerings will include the DF40A to the workhorse DF140A.  

This venture represents significant opportunity for Suzuki Marine USA. “We are thrilled about this partnership with Forest River and  Camping World, together we are going to accomplish great things,” said George “Gus” Blakely, Executive Vice President for Suzuki  Marine. “At a time when U.S. participation in boating and outdoor recreation continues to grow, we will be providing a top-quality,  feature-packed alternative to pontoon boat packages offered through other national outdoor retailers,” Blakely further added that  Suzuki’s recent success working with Forest River — including record setting sales growth — helped set the stage for this new  collaboration between Suzuki Marine, Forest River, and Camping World.  

On Tuesday June 15th, 2021 Camping World and Gander RV & Outdoors will be announcing on all social media platforms (Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, TikTok) the new release of their Nepallo Pontoon line exclusively rigged with Suzuki Marine. The Nepallo release  announcement starts at 8pm EDT. For more information go to
