ORLANDO, Fla. — Correct Craft Inc., manufacturer of Nautique boats, has created a team of in-house and external industry veterans to begin exploring investment opportunities within the marine industry, the company said in a statement today. Correct Craft is acting in collaboration with Ambassador Enterprises, a private equity company that obtained full ownership of Correct Craft in 2008.
The team will be led by Correct Craft’s President/CEO Bill Yeargin. Yeargin has also recruited Chuck West, former CEO of Mastercraft, Russell Baqir, former President of Textron Marine Finance, and Sean Marrero, Correct Craft’s CFO.
“I am excited to be leading a team of top industry veterans in exploring investment opportunities within our industry.
