In Tijuana, Mexico, Nautique employees built a new home for a family of four. While in Nicaragua, they volunteered at a homeless shelter for mothers and their children by helping with manual labor projects and providing entertainment and encouragement for the mothers and their children.

This marks the second consecutive year Nautique employees have participated in community service trips abroad.

“Our community service work abroad once again demonstrates the amazing hearts of our Nautique employees,” said Correct Craft’s President/CEO Bill Yeargin in a statement. “I am incredibly happy to be a part of a team that is not only committed to building the world’s best boats, but also committed to helping others worldwide.”
