Glasstream adds Georgia dealer

Glasstream Powerboats has named Lakeside Marine and Motorsports as its dealer for the Lake Lanier area in Georgia. The dealership will carry the full line of Glasstream boats from 17 to 36 feet.

“We’re more than excited to have the Lakeside Marine team join the Glasstream family,” said Kruis Retherford, president of Glasstream Powerboats in a statement. “They have a first-class facility and a great reputation in the service/boating industry.”

Lakeside Marine and Motorsports has been recognized locally in the Best of Forsyth County awards, winning Best of Forsyth Marine Service and Best of Forsyth in Used Sales. The dealership is also a member of the National Marine Electronics Association.

“With these accomplishments, I have no doubt that Lakeside Marine will be the perfect dealership for our constant pursuit of making our customers a number-one priority and their experience buying a Glasstream the best one yet,” said Retherford.
