Chip Fendt joined Statement Marine in a sales and customer service capacity.

Fendt, of Sarasota, Fla., is a world champion offshore racer with more than 30 years representing boat manufacturers such as Talon, Donzi, Hustler and Outerlimits.

The company, which launched at the Miami International Boat Show, plans production of only a half-dozen boats per year, which allows for the attention to detail necessary to achieve the high-end finished product offered by Statement.
