Correct Craft Celebrates 75th Anniversary at Turn of the Millennium

Correct Craft, Inc., based in Orlando, manufacturer of the world-famous Nautique brand of water ski and wakeboarding boats, is preparing to launch a major celebration as it enters model year 2000 with its 75th Anniversary. Coming off the eve of major industry recognition - the company claimed the Innovation of the Year Award from Boating Writers International - Correct Craft has proven its continued reputation within the markets it serves. At IMTEC 1999, Correct Craft was presented a coveted distinction for its Total Wake Control Hull featured on the all-new Pro Air model; the first dedicated designed boat for the fast-growing sport of wakeboarding. Throughout its rich history and tradition, the company has maintained a consistent leadership role. In 1961, it introduced the world's first tournament inboard ski boat, which led to the development of an entire industry segment. Over the years, the company has debuted many design "firsts" including the premiere of a center-mounted tow pylon, tracking fins on the hull, safety rearview mirror and cruise control. In 1997, the company launched the world's first tournament inboard wakeboard boat, followed by the first flight control tower, built-in ballast tanks and the newest innovation in the total wake control hull. It is one of the first companies to offer a national leasing program.
