Glastron unveils 2014 models


Rec Boat Holdings launched its 2014 model-year lineup on Monday to an audience of more than 30 international dealers at its headquarters in Cadillac, Mich., and will introduce the lineup to its top dealers at a leadership conference scheduled for Aug. 4-6.

The company said the Glastron brand has undergone a tremendous redesign. The new model year adds the all-new GT245, a 24-foot, feature-packed open-bow boat, new Legacy models and the GTX160 and GTX185, both entry-level models designed to attract the budget-conscious buyer. In addition to these new sterndrive and outboard-powered models, the company announced a new line of jet-powered boats — the GT187 and GT207.

The expansion of jetboats was recently announced, along with the company's new Scarab brand, to include the new GT187 for Glastron. The Rotax-powered jetboat, the first of a series of models to roll out in 2014, promises to bring a whole new level of boating fun to the Glastron line, the company said. Jet power delivers benefits to boaters that include shallow water operation, quick acceleration and additional cockpit space.

"The rich heritage of Glastron continues to attract consumers to the product," Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “We have strived to maintain that heritage while delivering a brand-new, modern-day design that delivers on the Glastron promise of fun and family adventure. This model year emphasizes our commitment to grow the brand by providing a broad range of affordable boats to fit the needs and desires of our consumers.”
