Default Dennis Freidmann, Avanti Boats, Where Is He Now?

After reading the "Dan Weinstein, Powerplay Boats, Where Is He Now?" I figured I would start a new thread about another boat builder with an interesting reputation. Does any one know what Dennise is doing? Is he still in the marine industry? Hopefully he is behind bars where he belongs!

Did I hear that he sold-out to the Egg Harbour/Trocki organization?

Avanti did sell to egg harbor

I have no idea where dennis went. Last I heard he was going to go sell boats for them.

I plan on asking around at the NJ boat show to see if anyone knows where he went.

hopefully change that nasty old design like stated above.

I was told by an egg harbor saleman, they were planning on building speed boats and using the avanti platform and name. Having seen the molds out back of avanti filled with ice and trash, I can't see them giving him that much for just a name like avanti. It's not world known like bayliner :-)
