(Orlando, FL) – Malibu Boats was announced as the 2010 Water Sports Industry Manufacturer of the Year by the Water Sports Industry Association (WSIA) September 10th at the Wakeboarding Magazine Wake Awards at Surf Expo in Orlando, FL. This 2010 WSIA Leadership Award joins a 3rd consecutive NMMA CSI Award for Customer Service Excellence as well as 19 Boat of the Year Awards in the Malibu Boat trophy case.
Water sports retailers, dealers and operators overwhelmingly cast their votes for Malibu Boats as a manufacturer who continues to reinvent themselves with new product design and technology. Malibu Boats separated themselves from the pack with inspired innovations like the weightless fold-down Illusion G3, the acquisition of the Titan Wake Accessories and their bold move to bring tower production in-house. Other industry-altering firsts like the Patented Power Wedge, the MaliView Dash and Entertainment System and sport-specific hull design must have added up in the minds of voter. Couple these cutting edge products with Malibu’s recently released 2011 Sunscape and Wakesetter 247 LSVs as well as the new Malibu Touch Command (MTC) projective capacitive touch screen and Malibu was the obvious choice.
When asked about this latest award, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Malibu Boats, Paul Singer, had this to say. “I would like to thank the industry’s retailers for this honor! It’s a great feeling to be recognized as an originator of cutting-edge products, especially by those who know water sports boats best.”
WSIA honored the water sports industry's best retailers and manufacturers with a variety of 2010 Leadership Awards for outstanding efforts in advertising, promotions, and branding. Malibu Boats received the 2010 WSIA Manufacturer of the Year Award during the Wake Awards on Friday, September 10, 2010 at Surf Expo in Orlando, FL.
