Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
http://www.zodiacmarineusa.com (Zodiac of North America, Inc.), the world's leading manufacturer of inflatable boats and rigid-hull inflatable boats (RIBs), announced their Save Fuel Keep Boating consumer rebate program today to stimulate early season sales of their inflatable boats and RIBs.
"Recreational RIBs are taking hold in America as primary boats due to their fuel efficiency and ride quality," Gary Durnan, Vice President, Zodiac of North America, commented. "Offering a rebate program in today's tough economy will further encourage customers to put Zodiac on their list and give us a try. If a customer sees they may use half the gas in a Zodiac, then the savings over a few years of use can actually offset the initial cost of the boat, especially if fuel prices begin to rise again."
The Zodiac Save Fuel Keep Boating Rebate Program:
- $500 Rebate on all large sport RIBs (Yachtline 340 dl and larger)
- $250 Rebate on all smaller RIBs
- $150 Rebate on all inflatable boats, including their Zoom line
"We had a record show at the Ft. Lauderdale show, we're hoping this continues our momentum at Miami," Durnan concluded. "Savvy boaters are seeing this as the time to make the switch to RIBs - they're more fuel efficient, require smaller tow vehicles, easy to maintain, and most importantly fun to operate!"
Dealers working the Zodiac and Avon booth (E85) at the Miami International Boat Show (February 12-16) will offer the rebate to customers at the show. Customers can compare performance data at http://www.SaveFuelKeepBoating.com
