Rec Boat Holdings rolled out its 2016 model-year lineup at the builder’s annual dealer meeting in Sarasota, Fla.

During the last year, Rec Boat Holdings has remained focused on new-product development, introducing 15 new models across its four brands: Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab and Wellcraft.

The dealer meeting — themed “20/20 Vision” — not only provided an opportunity to trial the new boats, but also delivered a twist to the norm for dealers in attendance.

“We wanted to offer our dealers a more valuable experience outside the normal business meeting and new-boat review,” Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “Providing speakers and seminars that relate directly to improving their business delivered a very exciting format for the dealers, as well as being informative.”

Four Winns launched a new line of deckboats, a new TS model with the Volvo FWD drive system and the Vista 255 sport cruiser; Glastron adds a new outboard model to the fleet — the GT 240; Scarab has introduced a new Wake Edition option to the Scarab 215 and 255 models; and Wellcraft has nine new models coming in the next year — bay boats, center consoles and walkaround offerings.
