New Checkmate site lets visitors customize boats

Performance powerboat builder Checkmate Marine, of Bucyrus, Ohio, launched a new Web site.

At the site, www.checkmatepowerboats.net, visitors can create and customize their own dream boat online, selecting from four Checkmate models. These designs can be viewed online, printed out for future reference, or sent along to the Checkmate boat works for assembly.

“For the first time in our history, you can partner with us to design and create your own one-of-a-kind, personalized Checkmate craft,” Checkmate president and CEO Doug Smith said in a statement.

Another popular feature of the site is Checkmate’s Forum Community. More than 6,000 Checkmate owners from around the world trade messages and trivia, post old and new photos, and view a gallery of classic Checkmate brochures from previous years.

The site also features the newest boat models, product shots and specs of current boat offerings, as well Checkmate apparel that may be ordered online.
