Leading the charge in that international marketplace was Italy, where retail activity has reached an all-time high. International sales also were secured in the Middle East and South America. In the U.S., sales were spread throughout the nation, with Florida setting the pace. Units were also sold into the Great Lakes, Carolinas, California and Gulf Coast regions.
This boat show was encouraging for us because of the way sales were spread across our product line, and dispersed throughout our dealer network, Boone said. Every dealer had activity, most closed deals on retail or stock units, and all left encouraged by an increase in activity in our market place. Hatteras displayed eight models at the boat show, ranging from 54 to 80 feet in length. Showers persisted through most of the show weekend, contributing to a nearly 15-percent reduction in foot traffic at the Hatteras display.
