Fred Brightbill, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of MasterCraft Boat Holdings, commented, “The sale of the NauticStar business to Iconic Marine Group will better position MasterCraft to drive profitable growth. I am confident that focusing on our MasterCraft, Crest and Aviara brands will drive enhanced value for MasterCraft shareholders, and that NauticStar will benefit from a new strategic owner dedicated to the future success of the brand. I want to thank NauticStar’s employees, who have a new home at Iconic Marine Group, for their hard work and dedication to quality and craftsmanship for our customers. We wish them success in the future.”
