Everglades sees sales boost at Lauderdale

Everglades Boats said it sold 14 boats during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show Oct. 29-Nov. 2, outpacing its retail sales from the previous year.

These are vessels in which customers put down a cash deposit and do not include any potential leads dealers might have gotten during the course of the show, the company said.

Everglades also confirmed a number of wholesale orders through the appointment of two new dealers at Plantation Boat Mart in Tavernier Key, Fla. and Boaters Warehouse in Port Clinton, Ohio.

"I'm ecstatic," said Greg Allen, vice president of sales for the company, in a statement. "The overall exhibits in the show were dramatically reduced, but we were able to secure a prominent position inside the convention center and capitalize our display with local and international buyers."

The company also said it anticipates a gradual increase in production in the coming weeks.
