Aqualand, Atlanta Marine and Monterey are a Hit!

This weekend was a great success with a new Monterey Dealer, Atlanta Marine at their summer boat show event.

Aqualand Marina in Flowery Branch GA. hosted a pre 4th of July customer appreciation party and Boat show. With temperatures reaching into the upper 90's customer enthusiasm was not hampered. With the current lake levels at Lake Lanier and gas prices hovering below $2.50 boaters and potential boaters were out in full force.
The day started slow on Saturday with temperatures rising quickly however, as the day progressed (and it got closer to party time) the crowd ensued! There were several boats contracted on
Saturday with the bulk sold later that day. On Sunday, the day started with two water test and and two more new customers of Atlanta Marine. Sunday ended with a bang and several more Monterey boats sold! Congratulations to Atlanta Marine and all the new Monterey boat owners!

The enthusiasm for the lake is back and families are ready to start enjoying the lake. The lake is at near full pool, fuel prices are down significantly and financing is beginning to stabilize again.

“Atlanta Marine is in a better position than ever,” says Kurt Backus, owner of Atlanta Marine. Atlanta Marine now has a great inventory of REPO/Bank owned boats we acquired at liquidation prices. This is the time to buy a boat and relax on the lake with family and friends. “We really appreciate the strong support offered by Aqualand Marina and their commitment to all boating on Lake Lanier. They are terrific partners and friends and this event is further proof of that,” he said.
