ORLANDO, FL (November 3, 2008) – To commemorate the launch of a new dynamic boating evolution, MasterCraft of Orlando is celebrating with an exciting Grand Opening Party and Sales Event on Nov. 7-8 at the dealership's location at 7576 South Orange Ave., formerly Southeast Correct Craft.
The newly opened MasterCraft of Orlando is launching their dealership with a customer-themed celebration to signal a new era in Central Florida wakeboarding. Boaters from Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake and Volusia counties are invited to a festive Grand Opening Party Friday, Nov. 7 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They'll enjoy food, drinks, entertainment, prizes and more as they climb aboard a wide selection of MasterCraft wakeboarding boats and Sea-Doo personal watercraft, offered at exclusive Grand Opening prices.
MasterCraft and the Walter N. Meloon family recently joined forces and announced in October that they would be opening this new dealership for Central Florida. MasterCraft of Orlando will offer a full-service sales and repair facility that will include the entire MasterCraft product line, plus the latest, most advanced Sea-Doo personal watercraft.
“We're very excited about our partnership with MasterCraft and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than have a party and invite Central Florida boaters and watersports enthusiasts as our very special guests,” said Gary Meloon, MasterCraft of Orlando vice president. “We want wakeboarders and waterskiiers in our five-county area to experience a new evolution in wakeboarding and to check out our new powerhouse dealership—MasterCraft of Orlando.”
Waterskiing World Champion and International Water Ski Hall of Famer Sammy Duvall will make an appearance on Saturday. He'll be joined by Team MasterCraft athletes Wade Cox, Will Christien, Andrew Adkison, Corey Bradley, Geno Yachler, Ty Udell, Travis Moye, Josh Palma and Derek Grasman. Several of the athletes will be a part of a thrilling tramp board exhibition on Saturday. They'll also be on hand to take boaters who stop by on demonstration rides in their favorite new MasterCraft models.
Guests will enjoy finger foods, BBQ, cold drinks, entertainment and the chance to win thousands of dollars in door prizes, including two wakeboards, a wakeboard tower mirror, a board rack, WetSounds TalkBack System, SeaDoo Towables, MasterCraft Jackets, Ogio Backpacks, T-shirts, calendars, jerseys and hats. The Red Bull Wiing Girls will be stopping by Saturday to join the celebration as WetSounds provides the non-stop event soundtrack.
This family friendly event encourages all watersports enthusiasts to bring the kids and will feature a bounce house and face painting. A special raffle held on Friday and Saturday will benefit the House of Hope Orlando charity, a non-profit, a non-denominational, non-profit organization dedicated to helping troubled teens between the ages of 13-17. The two raffle winners will each receive a private, videotaped wakeboarding session with a pro provided by O'Town Watersports, a word-class wakeboard school and camp in Orlando.
