Statement Readies Two Center Consoles for Fort Lauderdale

lauderdale statement leadThis electric blue 35-foot center console from Statement will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

In conjunction with one of its dealers, Boats Direct USAStatement Marine is planning to have a couple of its new center console models on display inside the convention center during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show starting next week (Oct. 31-Nov. 4).

According to Statement’s Craig Barrie, the St. Petersburg, Fla., company is wrapping up a 380 SUV with three Mercury Verado 300 engines to complement an attention-getting bright blue 350 SUV powered by twin 350-hp Yamaha outboards.

Along with a stunning paint job and top-notch interior, both center consoles will showcase a cool new feature from Statement—color-matched grout lines on the faux teak flooring. Without sharing any production secrets, Barrie touted the 35-footer’s finished flooring, which matched the boat’s electric metallic blue paint job.

Adding that the company will have another new model—the twin-engine 35-footer featuring a gold paint job and gold accents throughout—in the Key West Poker Run the following week, Barrie encourages interested boaters to check out the boats at the show or the poker run.

Between the stitching and logos in the upholstery to the grout in the flooring, the electric blue color scheme is carried throughout the 350 SUV. Powered by twin Yamaha 350 outboards, the 35-foot center console also includes a certified Waves & Wheels entertainment package.
