Default Velocity Power Boats

I want you guys to know what kind of company Velocity is. They have sponsored our poker run here on Lake Norman for 3 years now. They have watch our club grow and our poker run become bigger. They have always provided us with numerous give aways and support. I am a Sonic owner and have always been invited to their Velocity parties and other events that Velocity holds for its owners. They have always included our club members in these events also. Steve and Kim Stepp just recently helped us finish up another Fun Run/Poker run dinner event. Kim Stepp actually won best poker hand and donated the money back. She wanted it donated to "Float the Boat", http://www.corneliusfd.org/floattheboatcampaign.html , a campaign currently going on in our area to purchase a fire / rescue boat for Lake Norman, NC. What a nice gesture I thought. A couple of days later I receive a call from Clay down at Velocity. Velocity wants to build the Cornelius Fire Department a fire / rescue boat for Lake Norman at cost! Steve and Kim Stepp thank you for your kindness and your support. Velocity is a class act!

Thanks,

David

President, Carolina Powerboat Association

I've known Steve for almost 40 years and he has always been agreat guy, a great competitor, and a good friend. He is a truly class act and somehow operates totally without his ego being the dominant force in a room.

I can go on forever with all the wonderful things that Steve and Kim have done for me, but I can tell you that they are a first class act. They are always looking for ways to help their friends and customers and will go to any length to make good things happen. Could not ask for a better manufacturer and when you purchase one, you are family.
Thanks to Velocity for their support last weekend on LKN and all that they do. You do not have to own a Velocity to feel their friendship. They never meet a stranger. The same goes for their employees.
Special thanks to Steve,Kim,Kenny,Clay,Libby,Sarah,etc. for this past weekends support and all the great pictures on the website.

Being a fan of their boats, it's nice to hear good things about the people behind the product.
