NEWS AT SEA LAKE
September 2003 Newsletter
Welcome to Sea Lake Yacht Sales First Newsletter that combines every broker in the office. If you have received an emailed newsletter from one of the brokers in the past, you will be fairly familiar with this. If not, then let us tell you that we generally send out a monthly newsletter of what is happening here at Sea Lake. Every month we will tell you about, new and upcoming boat models, new listings and exciting news about the Clear Lake and Galveston Bay Area. Occasionally a deal comes along that is just too super to wait and we may send out a quick bulletin to let everyone know. It is also important to know that our mailing list is private and will not be given out to anyone else. Your privacy is important to us If by chance you do not prefer to receive this news just send us a reply with unsubscribe in the subject line and we will remove you from our mailings. Or if you prefer another email address to be used, just let us know.
The largest boat show of the year, the Fall In The Water Boat Show, Oct 2-5, is almost upon us. This show is held every year right here at Watergate Marina where our office is. We'll have a huge display this year and for a limited time we will be offering boat show pricing in advance of the boat show. That's right, right now you can come in and select the model you want and receive the same deal that we would offer at the show plus an extra bonus for your deposit on an in stock or ordered boat prior to the show opening.
Right now we are planning to show these models:
Tournament Express (new flush aft deck version for 2004)
Every model in stock or that can be ordered has a boat show special. Contact your broker for details.
Sea Lake has enhanced our power boat business! We have now hired a full time Power Boat Broker. Shane Peeples has many years experience in power boat sales and will be happy to assist you with a new Albin, Packet Craft or the new line of Beneteau Power Boats that will be coming out later this Fall. Shane is also soliciting select brokerage to fill the demand that we have. You can reach him direct at 281-334-2579
As mentioned, Beneteau has decided to finally bring their popular range of power boats into the US. Starting with an all new 42' Fast Trawler that was designed exclusively for the US Market. There have only been 5 dealers appointed in the US to be dealers for this new boat and we are happy to announce that Sea Lake has been appointed as one of those dealers. This boat will debut this fall and Sea Lake will be one of the first dealers to receive a boat later this year.
They will also be importing 3 other models from their European power boat line called the Antares. The 3 models are 33', 36', and 46'. All are more sedan bridge style boats and will have the beautiful interior that Beneteau is known for with centerline style owner's berths forward. A full personal inspection of the boat will be done this October by Sea Lake principles and we should be able to provide interested clients will all the full details then. We feel that demand will far outstrip supply of these new models Please reply to this email to get on our emailed news list for updates.
Our new Albin 28 Flush Aft Deck has arrived and our service Manager, Keith Lapinta, who has been with Sea Lake for 13 years now, took the boat out and had these comments: "After fueling the Albin 28 with approx. 120 gallons of fuel I took the boat out on the lake and at 3800 rpm's the SOG (speed over ground on the GPS) was an impressive 29.1 knots with an occasional 30 plus. The boat handles well-- a solid ride.
and Sold or Deal Pending since the last newsletter:
It is interesting to note that most of our sales continue to be previous satisfied Sea Lake clients and the referrals they send us. After all we have been in business for over 20 years. Still many sales are just from walk in traffic, as we are still widely known as the place for quality boats. And of course our newest source of buyers are coming from our website.
As everyone knows, the web changed everything, but after 3-4 years of most everything in the world being on the net, most clients know now that the web is just a research tool. You still need a broker to represent you in a sale. You need someone who knows the ropes and the ins and outs of this business. You might as well use a team with a combined experience of over 100 years in yacht sales---Your Sea Lake Yacht Sales Team.
We faithfully remain willing to help you in any way we can.
