SeaArk Boats will hold its dealer meeting and in-water show Aug. 23-25 in Branson, Mo., at the Chateau on the Lake Resort.

SeaArk Boats will have 40 boats on display, most of which will be inside the Chateau's convention area. Ten boats will be in-water, rigged with Suzuki engines and available for test runs. The company is offering new models, new options and accessories, and new colors for 2010.

Using the theme "Staying Alive in 2010," SeaArk has engaged several resources to help dealers learn about financing options, find ways to sell in tough times and to give industry updates.

SeaArk is using the event to kick off its 50th anniversary in the boatbuilding industry.
