Campion Boats 45th Anniversary


September 4, 2018

Boating Industry Canada got to speak with Brock Elliot, President of Campion Marine Inc. to follow up on their 45th anniversary event, which we touched on last week. Brock tells us that “Our 45th annual dealer meeting celebrations are now a wrap! We got very lucky – a very small amount of rain on Sunday afternoon was welcomed to help to clear the smoky skies from the forest fires burning in BC.”

He goes on to tell us that “Monday, was an absolutely perfect postcard day! Weather could not have been better. Simply amazing for our dealers from around the globe including new dealers from South Korea and Australia, the United States and Canada.” 

They also launched their new Campion Watersports WS25 model, and showed off new ‘in Gel Graphics’ for all the Chase, Allante and Watersport models and all new upholstery vinyls for the interiors of all models.

Campion Boats 45th AnniversaryA total of 19 different models/boats were on Lake Okanagan for their dealers to water test. The dealers were very pleased with these changes, including lots of exciting and complementary comments about the new Plumb Crazy Purple and Bahama Blue, brilliant gel colors and the overall quality of great boats. “The diversity of the Campion line up allowed all of our partnering engines suppliers to show off their newest technology including the Suzuki’s 350hp, Mercury’s 200 and 225hp and 150 Pro Xs and 15hp kicker motor, Evinrude G2’s, Yamaha and Volvo’s FWD drive.”

Congratulations to Brock and his entire team on celebrating Canada’s largest independent boat builder’s monumental anniversary.
