John Cathey, Owner & General Manager of Carolina Coach and Camper, North Carolina's premier RV dealership located in Claremont, North Carolina, announced today the addition of a new "marine" division that will serve Charlotte North Carolina, Lake Norman North Carolina as well as Hickory North Carolina. The business name will change to Carolina Coach and Marine to reflect both businesses, RV and marine. Mr. Cathey said the marine division will feature sales of two premium quality boats, specifically Triton bass boats built in Flippin, Arkansas, and Crest pontoons, built in Owosso, Michigan. The new division will provide retail new and used boat sales, parts and service on all makes and models. Cathey indicated that the business will be focused on superior service in all segments of the business.
According to Mr. Cathey, this opportunity is a "dream come true" in that he has personally enjoyed boating and fishing for more than forty years. Both divisions will be located in the same facility as the existing RV business on Centennial Blvd, I-40 Exit 135, with plans for a new marine showroom in the near future.
Carolina Coach and Camper, founded by Mr. Cathey in 1994, has a Charlotte, North Carolina Better Business Bureau A+ rating.
