Default STATEMENT! Press Release.

STATEMENT MARINE SIGNS DOUBLE R PERFORMANCE AS DEALER


St. Petersburg, FL – Just in time to make a “STATEMENT!” for the Miami International Boat Show, STATEMENT! Marine has signed Double R Performance as the dealer for its 42-foot Vee and 50-foot catamaran hulls.

“We welcome Raymond and Peter Roberts and Double R Performance to the STATEMENT! Marine family and look forward to a long-term relationship with this first-class organization,” said Vice President of Global Sales, Chip Fendt. “When you build the ‘Bugatti Veyron of the Water,’ the customer expects a certain level of service, and Double R Performance can exceed that expectation,” he added.

“We’re use to offering our customers the top-of-the-line in boats and service,” said Peter Roberts of Double R Performance. “The addition of STATEMENT! Marine gives us something new to offer our customers that we can have extreme confidence in.”

Founded in 1999 in Hawkestone, Ontario, Canada, Double R Performance has a 20,000 square foot service and sales facility specializing in Nor-Tech and Mercury Racing products. Double R will use the addition of STATEMENT! Marine to expand its operations into the United States, according to Roberts, “In the midst of a recession, Double R Performance experienced record sales years in 2008 and 2009,” he said. “STATEMENT! Marine will give us a new, innovative, quality boat to offer our customers as we open our new location in Port Orange, Florida.”

After introducing their Kevlar, E-glass and foam composite construction hulls at the 2009 Miami Boat Show, Team STATEMENT! barn-stormed North America, campaigning the Vee hull to poker runs in the U.S. and Canada, where Peter Roberts from Double R Performance experienced his first ride.
“As a ‘catamaran guy’ I was impressed by the 42 Vee hull because it rides and handles like a cat and approaches cat-like speeds,” Roberts said. “When you compare the innovations like the air-cushioned cockpit or something as simple as a hatch ram, you can see the quality and attention to detail that STATEMENT! has to offer.”

Fendt cited the Roberts brothers’ experience selling and servicing high-performance boats and the quality of their facilities. “They are a true performance dealer,” he said, adding, “with a test tank, dyno, engine building, drive building and full paint facilities. Double R Performance makes a ‘STATEMENT!’ in the way it services the customer. They built their business on customer service, and STATEMENT! Marine is establishing itself with the same reputation. It’s a natural match.”

He goes on to say that STATEMENT! Marine is rapidly establishing itself as the high-performance boating leader in creativity and innovation, “STATEMENT! Marine is creating a generational shift for the world’s elite powerboat enthusiast.”
