Correct Craft was identified as the 143rd largest private company in the state of Florida in Florida Trend magazine’s list of the Top 225 Private Companies. Among these 143 organizations, Correct Craft was the 11th fastest growing company in the group with sales growth in 2016 of 31 percent.  

For the past several years, Correct Craft has been executing a growth strategy of acquisition and optimization that the company says has resulted in substantial growth. Correct Craft, which now consists of seven boat brands, three engine brands and two water sports parks, distributes into 70 countries around the globe and is continuing to grow in 2017. Correct Craft said the company projects sales in 2017 will be over $400 million.

Also based in Florida, Nautique Boats, Correct Craft’s largest subsidiary, has taken two of the state’s top honors in recent years. Out of over 18,000 manufacturers, Nautique was named Florida’s Manufacturer of the Year and recently received the Florida Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence Award.

“I am very proud of our Correct Craft team that has done such a great job executing our growth strategy. It would be impossible to do what we have done without a group of very dedicated and hardworking people,” said Bill Yeargin, president and CEO of Correct Craft. “Even more than our significant growth, I am very proud of the ‘Making Life Better’ culture that we have developed at Correct Craft and each of our subsidiaries. Having just returned last week from serving in Haiti with 30 members of our team from across the country, I am reminded how fortunate we are to have a group of people who want to help others around the world and do their best to make life better for as many people as possible.”
