Nautique employees recently served in two projects as part of the company’s Nautique Cares initiative — one in their home community of central Florida and another in Haiti.

In Orlando, Nautique employees volunteered March 7 to help build a Habitat for Humanity home that Nautique Boat Co. is funding. This is the second Habitat for Humanity home in the past three years that Nautique has funded.

Nautique sister company Orlando Watersports Complex funded another, for a total of three homes. Nautique and Orlando Watersports Complex employees also volunteered time to help build each of the homes.

Another group of Nautique employees traveled March 13-14 to Haiti to distribute 3,400 pounds of food to Haitian families. The Nautique team flew into the Haitian countryside with a planeload of food and worked with various organizations to hand the food out to the families. The Nautique team also reviewed work done by several charitable organizations in Haiti.

“I am thrilled at the wonderful spirit of our employees, who are always willing to serve as part of our various Nautique Cares initiatives,” Nautique president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement.

“Both the home building in central Florida and food distribution in Haiti helped people who really need it,” he said. “Over the past eight years our Nautique team has traveled the globe serving others. We want to build the world’s best boats, but we also want to use our time and resources to help those who need it.”
