FORT LAUDERDALE – S1 Marine President Tom Thies reported today six new SeaStrike dealer locations and six new SportCraft dealer locations have been signed up in the past 45 days.
As a result, both boat brands met with extremely high consumer interest at the recent Miami International Boat Show, with a very large sales increase over the previous year, according to Thies.
“At the Miami show a year ago, we had four models and no dealers,” he said. “This year we displayed three SeaStrike and three SportCraft models. In addition, we had three dealers for each line work. Just as important, we now have dealers up and down the East Coast and as far west as Michigan. Consumer response has been tremendous and I think the trade’s reaction is exemplified by the rapidly growing number of dealers.”
S1 Director of Dealer Development Mike Collins said new SeaStrike dealers include: Tea Creek Outfitters, Kernersville, N.C.; North Atlantic Marine Group, Stevensville, Md. and Ocean City, Md.; Aqua Toy Store, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and Nexboat, Inc.
Key Largo, Fla.
New SportCraft dealers are Rudy Marine, Wilmington, Del.; Boats of Florida, Riviera Beach, Fla.; North Atlantic Marine Group, Stevensville, Md. and Ocean City, Md.; Aqua Toy Store, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and Nexboat, Inc., Key Largo, Fla.
