Century Boats Off To A Fast Start In 2005

by: Walker Agency,

(Aug. 18, 2004 - PANAMA CITY, FL.) Century Boats kicked off its 2005 model year with one of the most successful dealer meetings in the company's history.  Coming off of record low field inventories, Century dealers were eager to restock and secure orders for the coming year at this year's annual dealer meeting in Sarasota, Florida. "Our dealers worked hard work throughout the boat show season and early spring and their efforts resulted in a very successful year. Now, they are poised for an even better year in 2005," said Bob Berdanier, sales manager for Century Strong selling programs and new product were big contributors to the success in the 2004 model year. This trend continues for 2005 and dealers attending the meeting were enthusiastic about five new models. Smaller center consoles and bay boats are a strong category for Century. For 2005 the company introduced three new center consoles - 1701 CC, 1801 CC and 2400 CC. Also new were the 1902 Bay Boat and 2900 WA. "The Century line has been evolving over the last five years with improved hull designs, new deck configurations and continued improvements in quality and construction," says Dean Burnett, vice president and general manager at Century Boats. "As a result, the dealers have responded with more orders, and more importantly, consumers are asking for Century boats by name." Century boats are designed to meet the needs of any boater from the serious offshore angler to family cruisers. The Century line includes bay boats, center consoles and walk around boats in lengths ranging from 17' to 31' For more information, contact C&C Manufacturing, 6725 Bayline Drive, Panama City, FL 32404, or call (850) 769-0311.
