Some boaters in the south have the misconception that an enclosed pilothouse is hotter than an open boat and that enclosed pilothouses are designed for the cold up north.

I've done a ton of Florida boating in the summer and nothing could be further from the truth. I have an inverter and run a turbo fan and even on the hottest days I'm much more refreshed at the end of the day than on an open boat.

I wonder what the % of new car sales are convertibles. Maybe 2%? There is a reason for this!

Also doubles your boating time as you don't have to worry about cold nor rain when you might not risk taking out an open boat.

Not sunburned, not dehydrated, and not windburned. Protection from the elements is the only way to boat for a civilized person CoolSmile

Just do like they do in FL. Put the top down and turn up the AC.

Thanks Ken35216! Right after I posted that we took a deposit on the 25' Cruiser and the 23' Venture we had rigged for the show went to its new home in NC last Tuesday. Luckily, we have another 23' that we're installing the engine on now but an interested party is liking it better than the 22' Cruiser they had been considering. So far it looks like we'll have 7 models but I'll update the display list as we get closer to show time.

Snobs like paying more for a boat.

Thanks Harvey, It's great to have them back! The response has been very positive and we look forward to increasing sales in the future. The simplicity, quality and efficiency, to name a few, are not found on any other brand. Also, working with the guys @ NMI and their build quality is GREAT!

Hello Mike,

I didn't know I was taking the boat you planned for the boat show, ("the 23' Venture we had rigged for the show went to its new home in NC last Tuesday")...I'm not sorry just surprised! LOL

The boat is well off here in NC. If anyone insists on a ride, send them up...glad to take them out on EressŽa.

Greg

Hi Greg,

That's ok, we have an impressive 6 boat display at the show. I'm proud to say the largest showing of the brand on the east coast! Thank you for the offer Greg, will do! I'm glad you're enjoying it. Send us some photos when you can.

Mike
