Stratos, Aqualuma unveil new websites


Stratos Boats launched an updated website that introduces new boat buyers and Stratos loyalists to new features and interactive content.

"The redesigned website is intended to reflect the Stratos attitude in every way: It's more aggressive, more competitive and more useful," Stratos pro staff member Larry Nixon said in a statement. "Stratos isn't just for the young guns who fish competitively. It's also for the young at heart and anyone who likes to compete, whether it's on the water or off, for money or just bragging rights."

With contributions from Stratos pro staff members throughout the site, visitors also will be able to share their experiences as a Stratos owner, including the ability to post pictures of their rigs.

Users will find information on current sales promotions, Stratos 2X contingency prizes and tools to locate authorized Stratos dealers and request free catalogs.
