Bill with the Centurion and Supreme team - Clark Bird, Rick Lee and Erin McIlhatton

Today our family grew once again and once again we are excited. Nautique’s parent company, Correct Craft, announced that they have acquired a majority interest in both Centurion Boats and Supreme Boats. We welcome them to the family!

Both Centurion and Supreme have long and proud histories in the boating industry. Centurion continues that today as the official towboat of the World Wake Surfing Championships. Both brands are built by a talented team in Merced, California, and have a respected leadership team. We believe they will fit in well with our family and look forward to working with them.

As CEO of Nautique’s parent company, Correct Craft, it has been fun to see not only the global growth of Nautique these past several years but also see other companies join our family. Correct Craft has been growing like crazy so, to help you keep it all straight, below is a summary of our family:
While Nautique’s parent company is growing and Nautique gains some sister companies that does not change one ounce the
Nautique commitment to quality, performance and service. Our Nautique team is also growing and more committed than ever to ensuring Nautique provides the boats that ensure our customers (along with their friends and families) have the best possible experience on the water. Nautique will continue to do that.
