Marine Products Corp., the parent company of boatbuilders Chaparral and Robalo, was named a partner member of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas.

"We are honored to have earned Chaparral and Robalo’s partnership,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement. "During the recession their company demonstrated its commitment to their dealer networks, providing dealers with outstanding support during the most challenging of times. We are thrilled that they also have chosen to promote marine retail success through support of the MRAA.”

Through its largest subsidiary, Chaparral Boats, Marine Products is one of the leading builders of sterndrive powerboats in the country. Marine Products also competes in the sportfishing boat marketplace with Robalo offshore sportfishing boats.

"We invest in supporting our dealers because we understand how important a strong and balanced dealer-manufacturer relationship is to both parties’ success,” Chaparral and Robalo president Jim Lane said in a statement. "Our partnership with the MRAA is another way we can encourage the success of the marine dealer body and ultimately, the entire boating business.”
