Pontoon boat manufacturer Premier Marine hosted 78 dealers during its 25th annual dealer meeting in Wyoming, Minn.

The three-day event wrapped up Tuesday with the company showcasing 14 models for the 2018 model year.

“When we started this brand, we knew it had enormous potential in a competitive marketplace,” Lori Melbostad, president of Premier Marine, said in a statement. “We refined the features and qualities of the products, reintroduced them to the growing pontoon market and watched the brand commitment remain with the active dealer network.”

Early dealer meeting orders were reportedly strong, with production selling out through the end of the year, Premier said.

“We are looking forward to regaining the trust of our dealers and customers in the marketplace,” Melbostad said.
