STRATOS KICKS OFF 25TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR
Evolution models anchor 25th Anniversary lineup
MURFREESBORO, TENN. (August 4, 2008)
For a quarter century, serious anglers looking for a top-performing design that’s as easy to own as it is to enjoy have found a rewarding home with Stratos boats. Celebrating that special relationship with anglers and their families, Stratos Boats is kicking off their 25th anniversary model year with a host of innovative new products and exciting programs.
With a rich fishing and performance-driven heritage, Stratos’ roots on the water run deep. Reinforcing that cutting-edge commitment has been the company’s introduction of the hugely popular XT Series. Equipped with a wealth of standard equipment and impressive fishability features, the series offers an unbelievably affordable, quality fiberglass alternative for anglers previously limited to the shortcomings of aluminum boats. The amazing price, performance and interior feature advantages of the series quickly made the Stratos 176XT the top-selling boat in its class.
Following the success of the XT Series, Stratos recently launched the 201 and 294 XL Evolution models. With cutting edge hull designs and all-new interiors, these full-throttle platforms are engineered for competitive anglers looking for strong performance and no-nonsense fishability features. The 201 and 294 XL Evolution models represent a powerful, new class of high performance bass boats from Stratos and anchor the Tennessee-based boat builder’s 25th Anniversary model lineup.
In addition to so many new and innovative product offerings, the Stratos legacy is equally tied to customer satisfaction and support. A six-time winner of the National Marine Manufacturer Association’s CSI award, Stratos continues to provide even more opportunities to reward the Stratos family. A recently launched contingency program called the Stratos 2X “Double Your Winnings” program brings lucrative payout potential to registered Stratos anglers fishing out of a qualifying Stratos boat. Launched earlier this year in anticipation of the 25th Anniversary, the 2X program doubles tournament winnings up to $10,000 and has already paid out thousands of dollars to Stratos owners across the country.
With 25 years of successfully building quality fishing boats, Stratos strives to stay in touch with the needs of anglers and families who enjoy the boating lifestyle. A completely redesigned website gives visitors easier access to information on local dealerships or individual models and features a new “Stratosfaction” section dedicated to customer feedback. With the ability to share thoughts, experiences, pictures and video, the “Stratosfaction” section ultimately promises to be a great tool for website visitors to gain insight into the Stratos brand and Stratos product.
Topping off the 2009 product offerings, participating Stratos dealers are offering even more to their owners through a special 25th Anniversary rebate on every new model purchased. With so many programs and events in place to recognize this special anniversary model year, Stratos Boats remains focused on innovative, top-performing products and industry-leading customer satisfaction.
