Brunswick Corporation : Crestliner Announces Million Dollar Club …

Otsego, Minn., Aug. 21, 2017 - Crestliner presented Million Dollar Club awards to 14 dealers at its 2017 dealer meeting, a high-energy event focused on the company’s newest models, marketing initiatives and product innovations.

The Million Dollar Club Award honors dealers whose annual sales of Crestliner products exceeded $1 million. Many of the award winners went above and beyond that threshold, surpassing $2 and $3 million. A complete list of winners can be found at the close of this news release.

“Few things are more gratifying than handing out the Million Dollar Club awards at our dealer meeting,” said Crestliner President Eric Hendrickson. “These awards are a testament to both our dealers’ commitment to the Crestliner brand and to the company’s prominence in the aluminum fishing boat and pontoon markets.”

In addition to the Million Dollar Club awards, Crestliner handed out an Outstanding New Dealer Award and an all-new Advocacy Award. The Boat Place took home Outstanding New Dealer honors one year after becoming a Crestliner dealer, and 30 years into the boat-selling business. Hall’s Marine received the inaugural Award for Advocacy, which recognizes the dealer who makes Crestliner brand advocacy a priority. This includes maintaining a solid business partnership with Crestliner, participating in events and promotions, and offering valuable feedback.

“We were thrilled to hand out an award this year that recognized dealer loyalty, rather than strictly sales,” Hendrickson said. “Being true partners with our dealers is deeply important to our mission and to the success of the company.”

Crestliner’s product portfolio has expanded for model year 2018 to include four new models. The deep-V line-up has added the Bass Hawk bass-fishing boat and the utility-focused Outreach, and the mod-V line-up now includes the Retriever Forward Center Console, ideal for shallow waters, and the SC Heavy Duty, great for catfishing.

“This year’s new models represent the company’s forward momentum,” Hendrickson said. “I have no doubt these boats will be greatly successful, thanks in large part to our remarkable dealer network. We look forward to another year in partnership.”

50m Christensen ‘Silver Lining’ listed for sale – Superyacht News

The owner of the 50m Christensen-built motoryacht, Silver Lining, has listed the boat for sale with IYC and Peter Kehoe and Associates for $34 million, despite only taking delivery earlier this year.

Christensen had been previously – and allegedly – forced into a state of receivership by the current yard owner, Henry Luken. The yard temporarily closed in February and March 2015 before the company’s remaining assets were bought by Luken at a rock-bottom price of $5.5 million, according to numerous reports, although this has not been confirmed. 

The launch of Silver Lining, a year and three months after Christensen’s employees had lost their jobs as a result of the yard’s closure, was symbolic of its return to top-quality yacht-building. “The millwork at Christensen is, and always has been, excellent and the yard is very well-known for that,” said listing broker Frank Grzeszczak, sales consultant and partner US of IYC, in an exclusive conversation with SuperyachtNews

Silver Lining is one of only a handful of 50m+ yachts in the world that is built from fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP). The mould was initially intended to sit below the regulatory 500-gross ton threshold, but the owner was adamant on having extra volume, so she is 580-gross tons. 

“You can really feel it in different areas of the boat,” continued Grzeszczak. “In the dining room, there is an extra three feet in length, so there’s not a confined seating area like you have on a lot of boats this size. You can also really feel it in the salon, sky lounge and deck space aft. It has been evenly distributed throughout the boat and I think it has also improved the profile of the boat.”

Of the many notable features on board, Grzeszczak highlights two of distinction: the elevator, accessing all decks, including the sun deck, and the touch-and-go helipad, which has a 1,000-gallon helicopter fuel tank and is class-approved.

Grzeszczak has noticed that there is a relative dearth of “late-model” boats for sale in the United States. “Silver Lining is a great listing to have because there is very little product of this age and quality available. I would like to think that this boat will be sold by the Fort Lauderdale boat show. For someone looking for a six-stateroom boat, this is the perfect option.”

Grzeszczak mentioned that the US market is “very strong” at the moment. “The strength of the stock market and our economy are having a huge effect on the industry – and other industries, from new construction homes to cars. There is a lot of money out there at the moment.

“Is it the Trump effect?” Grzeszczak asks. “Maybe. Or, perhaps it is the result of the economic policy of the Obama era coming to fruition. It might be a combination of the two. It would be difficult to say who should get the credit for the thriving markets we are enjoying right now, so I will leave that to the economists to decide.

“In addition to stock market gains, some of our clientele may be choosing to purchase or charter private luxury yachts for the added level of privacy and security. With the rise of incidents occurring worldwide, many of our clients are hesitant to travel to once popular tourist destinations and don’t feel safe at even the most luxurious five-star resorts. The robust stock market has put a lot of money into the marketplace and we’re having a lot of success as a result, in sales and charter.”

IYC is expecting to open another office in Palm Beach, imminently, to fortify its presence in the bustling US market.
