Fenech, President & Co-Owner of Barletta Pontoon Boats. “There is a huge difference between believing we
could be where we are at today versus actually being here. Everyday, this team comes to work with passion,
energy, and enthusiasm - ready to ‘get after it’. Even then, we wouldn’t be here without the trust and belief of
the dealers and customers who were early adopters of the “Barletta Way.” The testimonials we get on social

an indication that we are doing the right things for our customers and the industry as a whole. There is no
mistaking that we still have a lot of work left to do - it’s never-ending. And because of that, I can guarantee you
