Mt. Dora, FL – The Standard Boat Company has opened its doors for business in Mt. Dora. Florida and has set as their business goal to offer the budget conscious boater an affordably priced, high performance wakeboard boat.
From its beginning, Standard Boat Company founder, Philip Shearer, said, "It is our desire to offer a basic boat that includes all the features you want in a high performance towboat but without the excess features that you might not need. With our low overhead cost structure, we can offer our customers the necessary components they expect but at a more affordable price."
The Standard Boat's engine package is first-rate. Included with the basic boat is Mercury Marine’s Mercruiser Scorpion 5.7L 335hp engine, the Smartcraft Monitor All-in-One Display, Super Ultra Low Emission with Catalyst, Smartcraft DTS Drive & Shift by Wire and the Mercury Smart Tow Cruise with Launch Control. For an affordable boat, this is truly a powerful engine with the right amount of tow torque for efficient pulling power. Additionally, the engine is backed by a four-year warranty by Mercury’s authorized dealer network.
Each boat is carefully hand assembled. The hull, deck and other parts are produced with resin infused composite construction for strength and durability. The hull and deck can be any custom color with premium marine color matched seating for six. The driver’s seat is an Attwood– Visionaire ventilated seat with open-weave fibers for cool, dry comfort. A convenient flip-open bow hatch offers dry storage and can even hold a 50 quart cooler.
Shearer adds, "High performance tow sport boats can be affordably priced. New boarder’s or even long-time riders can get a brand new boat rather than a used one. We can even work with our customers during the manufacturing of their boat to add unique features for a truly personalized vessel."
