Riding in Style
The 350 SLX and a GMC Yukon Denali and Sierra 3500 headlined Lookout Marine's recent open house event.
Kentucky Sea Ray dealership Lookout Marine kicked off the summer season with a fun-filled open house event on May 15 and 16. One of the highlights was a VIP Party on Friday evening, where customers mingled with the attentive Lookout Marine crew, explored the cutting-edge 350 SLX, and enjoyed great food, beverages, music and activities.
“The event went well,” says General Manager Jimbob Troxtell. “We had a good turnout, probably a couple hundred people over the course of the event. Everybody had a great time. They all liked the new products; Sea Ray’s SPX series got a lot of interest in particular. The weather didn’t exactly cooperate…. We had rain all weekend, but it was a good time despite that.”
For many boaters, trailering is the key that unlocks a whole world of opportunity, particularly in the dog days of summer when the majority of us are basking in hot weather. Suddenly every local lake, river and reservoir beckons with the promise of cool water, warm sunshine and good friends. To help guests gear up for a successful season, Joe Cummins of Don Franklin Auto provided vehicles for the open house event that were well suited to the task of towing: a GMC Yukon Denali and a GMC Sierra 3500.
“Our customers commonly use their GMCs for trailering,” Joe explains. “The vehicles are exceptional for it. Between the 2013 and 2014 model years, we saw big increases in GMC’s horsepower and torque, which increased their towing capabilities, and of course that was carried over into the 2015 models. They’re high-end—the Cadillac of trucks, if you will. GMC put a lot of smart engineering into things that improve the ride quality, like Magnetic Ride Control, which creates a smooth, luxury drive feel.”
And with a fleet of new Sea Ray models on display all weekend, guests found plenty of inspiration to help kick off their #SeaRaySummer season. Looking to amp up your own?
