Carolina Skiff took the top spot as the nation’s top-selling fiberglass boat builder, according to a recent survey. The numbers from the survey were 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 since 1997, Carolina Skiff now holds claim to the top-selling fiberglass boat builder across the U.S. Categories include all fiberglass boat types (freshwater and saltwater), and 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.”
“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.”
