Over the past couple of years I have had the opportunity to take four trips to the Middle East including visits to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The people I have met in the Middle East are very warm and the region is very nice; in many ways it is much different than sometimes portrayed by the press here in the United States.

All over the Middle East people love Nautique boats. I have seen our boats on the Nile River, Sea of Galilee, Red Sea and Persian Gulf among other places and in each of those bodies of water people are enjoying the Nautique life.

Last week I was back in the Middle East and as part of my trip I attended Grand Opening events in Israel and Kuwait held by two of Nautique’s new dealers.

In Israel we are thrilled to be represented by the best dealer in the country, Stream Yachts. Roy, Itay, Uri, Ella and the entire Stream team are off to a great start. They kicked off their Grand Opening with a two-day event in northern Israel on the Sea of Galilee that brought out hundreds of people who wanted to learn more about Nautique. We took many of them out on the Sea of Galilee for demos and everyone had a blast. We followed that up with a great one day event in southern Israel on the Red Sea. Besides people wanting to learn more about Nautique we also had a bunch of reporters at these events who will be spreading the word about Nautique throughout the country. Team Nautique athlete Shawn Watson was with us both days and amazed people there with his riding.

On a side note, we went out early one morning before the event started and I had a chance to wakeskate on the Sea of Galilee. That was REALLYcool!

In Kuwait, Jeanne, Bader, and Saleh lead a talented and enthusiastic team at Balance, our Nautique dealer, and I was also honored to attend their Grand Opening. Balance did a great job with their Grand Opening including two days of events which gave people in Kuwait an opportunity to learn more about Nautique and actually use a Nautique during a demo day, also with Nautique rider Shawn Watson. I was thrilled to see so many people from Kuwait coming out to learn more about Nautique and Balance.

The Grand Opening events in Israel and Kuwait were both a huge success and we are excited to be represented by such incredible dealers.

Nautique has dealers in fifty-two countries so odds are that wherever in the world you live, Nautique boats make life better. Join the fun by contacting the Nautique dealer closest to you; they can be found at Nautique.com.

The world’s best wake boat; the world’s best ski boat; and people who care.

Enjoy the Nautique life!
