World Cat debuts sales promotion

World Cat recently announced a customer loyalty program that awards new boat buyers as much as $15,000 in savings if they purchase a new World Cat 29-, 32- or 33-foot model before Feb. 28.

The program offers $10,000 in savings on any of the company's 29-foot 2011 models and $15,000 on larger ones.

"Our owners are repeat customers and, given their strong support of World Cat over the past few years, we wanted to give something back," company president Andrew Brown said in a statement. "Our loyal customer base is the reason World Cat is strong and poised to take advantage of the economic recovery we are experiencing today."

All World Cat buyers also can take advantage of a Miami International Boat Show travel incentive promotion. New World Cat buyers and current owners can earn travel credits of as much as $5,000 if they sea-trial and buy at the Miami show.

The World Cat customer loyalty event is available only through authorized World Cat dealers participating in the program and is applicable to new 2011 World Cat models.

Customers must take delivery of their new boat by June 30 to qualify for the savings.
