Stingray Boats holds annual dealer meeting


Stingray Boats recently held its 2012 dealer meeting in Hartsville, S.C., with more than 100 dealers and prospects from around the world attending the two-day event.

“The dealers were positive about their 2011 results and excited about the 2012 model year,” vice president of global sales Mark Skeen said in a statement. “They are excited to see the new product we have to offer and see our continued commitment to provide the best value in boating, whether it’s sterndrive or outboard.”

Those on hand also were able to test-drive three new models for 2012. Stingray introduced its new lineup of outboard-powered sportdeck models, the 204 LR and the 214 LR. A new sterndrive model, the 195 RX, also was introduced.

The company has introduced 11 new models in the past two years.

“We are going to build the products that sell and make our dealers profitable,” company president Al Fink said in his address to the dealers.
