Carolina Skiff Registrations Tops in America Among Fiberglass Boat Builders



From Press Release

Carolina Skiff, LLC is pleased to announce that it has become the nation's number-one fiberglass boat builder. This esteemed accomplishment is based on new boat state registrations compiled by Statistical Surveys, Inc. for the year ending December 31, 2012.

Holding the industry's top spot in fiberglass boat sales in the saltwater, fiberglass, outboard-powered category since 1997, Carolina Skiff is now the number-one fiberglass boat builder in America, covering all fiberglass boat types (freshwater and saltwater), inboard or outboard propulsion in lengths 14 feet and up.

“It is an honor to become America's number-one fiberglass boat builder,” states Joe Kirkland, CEO/president of Carolina Skiff, LLC. “Carolina Skiff owners recognize that our boats possess the best combination of quality, features and affordability in the industry. Carolina Skiffs are the right boat for the right times.”

And, Carolina Skiff's retail partners share Kirkland's enthusiasm.

“Having been a Carolina Skiff Dealer since 2008, I can honestly say that, quite simply, Carolina Skiff gets it,” remarks Dean Messina of Jarvis Marine in Tuckerton, New Jersey. “Year after year, the Carolina Skiff team produces innovative boats that fit real-world consumer needs. As importantly, they go the extra mile to support us in a number of ways to ensure that our customers are happy—and that we're able to maximize our bottom-line profitability.”

“Carolina Skiff is, without question, the number-one volume leader at our dealership,” notes Chris Martin, general manager of Chatlee Marine in Sanford, North Carolina. “The boats look and perform better than they ever have, and offer a value that's second to none in the industry.”

“Grass Shack at Lake Lanier has been a Carolina Skiff dealer for 11 plus years, and their boats have always been great sellers for us here in Georgia,” states Michael Prince, Jr., general manager. “Carolina Skiff has come so far in the last several years, namely in continuing to refine and update models that already sell so well. Couple their innovation with the willingness to listen to dealer and customer input, and it's no surprise that Carolina Skiff is the number-one boat brand on the market today.”

“As the cost of boats—and boating—continues to increase, it's refreshing to see Carolina Skiff hold their ground on pricing,” comments Brad Lawson, general Mmnager and co-owner of Jacksonville, Florida-based Dell Marine. “Mr. Kirkland and his team's commitment to continually adding consumer comforts and improving performance has helped solidify Carolina Skiff as the industry's premier manufacturer of affordable family boats. As a full-line dealer of Carolina Skiff, Ultra, Sea Chaser and Fun Chaser boats, Dell Marine looks forward to growing our partnership in the years to come.”
