Little Falls, Minn (November 12, 2014) – Larson Boat Group's (LBG) Larson and Striper brands were a "big" hit at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 31 – November 3, 2014. "When we think of Lauderdale we typically think big boats and big yachts sold outside in the water at the Bahia Mar Marina. Our Larson and Striper brands hit big inside the convention center with double digit increases year over year and a product mix heavily focused on boats larger than 26–feet" said Larson Boat Group President & CEO Rob Parmentier.
This year's Lauderdale show, Striper introduced the third model in the recently launched 200–series of boats, the Striper 200 Dual Console (DC). The event and boat drew a lot of attention to the booth. "The 200 DC launch and the rounding out of our Striper 200–series at the Lauderdale show continues to illustrate the strength, depth and investment in the Striper brand of boats for Larson Boat Group," added Pat Blake, LBG VP of Sales and Marketing.
"We are very excited with the outcome of the Lauderdale Boat Show as well as the product we are receiving from the Larson Boat Group and the employees in Little Falls," said Davey Marine Center GM, Mario Aiello. "The numerous product changes, from 2014's to 2015's model year across the entire product line–up, the energy and focus of the management team and just a general sense of consumer confidence are all reasons why I think we had a successful show," concluded Aiello.
Blake reinforced Aiello's remarks by stating, "We certainly continue to feel the market's momentum and tide turning in the direction of Larson Boat Group's brands and our dealers for a successful 2015."
