"We believe the end result is a product, and a company, that you will love."
With over 30 years of experience in the RV industry, one of the things I treasured most, was the personal connections I, and my company, made with our customers and dealers. The ability to stay in touch with the needs of our customers, employees, and ultimately the products we built was really the secret to our success. Grand Design RV, a company started by my brother Ron, good friend Don Clark, and me, used a unique customer-focused/dealer centric business model that developed and fostered these connections. In just four short years, Grand Design RV achieved wholesale sales of over $500 million and became the most respected towable RV company in the industry.
As an avid, long-time boater, I entertained the idea of entering the marine industry for years. From a distance, I could tell that the marine industry was ready for a shake-up and our customer-focused approach would do just that. The timing never seemed right, though, until June of 2017, when a local manufacturing facility became available. An overnight decision a decade in the making, I secured the location for what would become Barletta Boat Company.
Just as in 2012 with Grand Design RV, Barletta Pontoon Boats started with a blank canvas, allowing us to do things differently than what has been done over and over again. We believe the end result is a product, and a company, that you will love.
