Centurion Boats adds Tennessee dealer


Centurion Boats recently added Norris Lake Boat Center in Tennessee to its roster of dealers.

The dealership is in LaFollette in the Knoxville area and said it is one of the state’s fastest-growing marine dealerships.

“We were looking for a reputable dealership known for offering high-quality products in the Knoxville-LaFollette area,” Centurion Boats president Paul Singer said in a statement. “But even more important was selecting a dealer to deliver world’s best customer focus. Norris Lake Boat Center was the obvious choice, and we are extremely excited to have them as part of the Centurion Boats family.”

“We could not be more excited to represent the Centurion Brand, and with over 25 years’ experience in the boating industry, Norris Lake Boat Center is the one-stop shop for all your boating needs, dealership owner Mark Profit said.
