Hilton Lake Las Vegas hosts biggest-ever Cobalt Boats and Marker One dealer meeting.

Setting the record as the best-attended dealer meeting in Cobalt Boats history, more than 400 dealers and vendors gathered at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada to recap the previous model year and plan for 2016.

 The festivities kicked off with a welcome reception which included the debut of five new models. This was the second year Marker One made its introduction into the platform series category and now there are three models – soon to be four. Among other announcements, the host dealer – Boulder Boats – was awarded and recognized, as well the new boat introduction with a sneak peek at each model. The evening concluded with food and beverage atop of the hotel’s scenic bridge overlooking Lake Las Vegas, a private lake with an exclusive clientele. In addition, the top dealers and customer satisfaction awards were also commended for their accomplishments in 2015.

Seminars and other breakout sessions followed the next few days including an invigorating speech by keynote speaker, Ryan Estis. Estis has been recognized as “one of the best keynote speakers ever heard” by Meetings & Conventions magazine. His presentation included Cobalt and Marker One brand specific details and enlightening “today” topics that left the crowd motivated and inspired for the upcoming season.

 Also presented during the business meeting was a donation of more than $60,000.00 to the Folds of Honor Program. Cobalt and Marker One Boats donated the net proceeds from each flag pole set sold to the organization, which provides educational scholarships to the families of fallen soldiers.

Also presented for the first time ever was the Marker One Largest Dealer award which also went to Village Marina. In addition, awards were presented to the following as top performers in the platform category; Rambo Marine of Hazel Green, Alabama and Parks Marina of Okoboji, Iowa. The Regional CSI award is a coveted award.
