ISLAMORADA, Fla., Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a strategic move to provide a more streamlined sales experience and enhanced customer service offerings, Plantation Boat Mart & Marina, Inc., a premier boat dealership in South Florida, has announced the recent acquisition of Hydra-Sports Boat Company from M C B C Hydra Sports LLC (Master Craft Boat Company).  The new company is known as Hydra-Sports Custom Boats, LLC.

Poised to represent an entirely new concept within the boating industry, customers will be able to order their new vessels directly from the company's Islamorada andPalm Beach factory test centers and take delivery.  Every model will be available on-site at the company's Florida Keys location and ready for sea trial.

"I am excited about the formation of Hydra-Sports Custom Boats and am proud to offer a premium level of customized service to our new and returning customers," stated Elias De La Torre III, CEO of Hydra-Sports Custom Boats and President of Plantation Boat Mart & Marina. "My family and I have spent thousands of hours on our own Hydra Sports and feel very passionate about the brand— making us in tune with our customers and their needs. Now we can engineer the boats with our customers at our test facilities, giving them a truly customized boat that is reflective of their lifestyle. Whatever they envision, we can make it a reality."

In addition to customization, Plantation Boat Mart & Marina only services the boats they sell. With a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction, the company excels in providing every customer with an optimal boating experience—especially after the sale. If a customer's boat breaks down, for example, Plantation Boat Mart & Marina will provide a loaner boat for them to use. This high level of service only furthers the company's dedication to excellence, while setting them apart from the industry standard.

    I Hope that Hydra Sports considers adding back the smaller boats in the line. I would like to buy a 2300 VX in the next couple of years but as of now I will only be able to buy a used one. How will the company service boats in other states away from Florida without a dealer network?

    Congratulations Elias.
    I have worked with Plantation Boat Mart since their beguining. They have provided excellent service to their many customers over the years.
    This venture is not a new one for Plantation Boat Mart's and is not the first boat company they have a hand in, on the manufacturing end. I'm sure they will prove a great asset to their customers and dealers for many years to come.

    Don't worry about Servicing your Boat. There is a Engine and it has its own Warranty, nothing to do with Hydra-Sport unless if the mounted the Engine wrong or they don't have Yamaha approval .ie: Installing a F-350 on a 23' Boat. Also what goes wrong in the first year? Nothing so what do they need a warranty or Servicing Dealer. Please bring your Hydra-Sport to my Dealership and I will glad to charge you for a Service. The Dealer does not do Service for free. Boats are Boats. It is not like buying a Lexas or Infinity or Cadillac. The Dealer doesn't pick your Boat up if you break down They don't give Loaners. You are on your Own with a New Sea Ray or any other New Boat.
