Correct Craft, the builder of Nautique boats, was visited this week by Han Duk-soo, South Korea's ambassador to the United States.


Han met with company officials to learn about Correct Craft's business dealings with South Korea and discuss ways that Korea and Correct Craft can expand their relationship as a result of the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement.

"Our entire team was truly honored by Ambassador Han's visit to our facility in Orlando and his kind words about both our boats and our operations," president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. "Earlier this month I had the opportunity to visit Seoul, Korea, and was truly impressed by their country and their love for water sports; we look forward to working closely with the Koreans to improve our already excellent relationship."
