(Blackshear, Georgia) Composite Research, Inc. (CRI) announces the addition of the all-new Sea Born LX22 center console boat to its model lineup. According to company officials, the new model is the first of three in the new LX series of center console boats designed for both serious anglers as well as families seeking recreation.
“One thing we see in common among our dealers and buyers is the demand for value and vessels with multiple uses. Twenty years ago our boats were simple, one or two hull types with a few basic options. Today, our buyers expect integrated technology, creature comforts, better fuel economy, along with the ability to catch fish and to just have fun on the water. To meet those demands family friendly center console boats like the new LX22 have evolved to serve multiple duties.” says Wally Bell president of CRI.
Unique to the LX series, the new model offers a higher sidewall (freeboard) allowing greater access to rougher waters expanding its range and fishing competency. For the family, the LX22 includes both forward and rear seating lounges adding passenger comfort and safety. And like all Sea Born’s, the LX22 includes a stepped hull which according to company engineers improves performance while conserving fuel.
“Our goal with the 22 was to create an elegant fishing and family friendly center console that’s affordable but still full of great features. I’m confident we’ve reached the proper balance and that LX22 owners will really enjoy this boat.” continues Wally Bell president of CRI.
The addition of the LX22 is one part of a larger series of ongoing expansions for CRI. Earlier this year, the company added the Sea Born FX24 Bay, FX21 Bay Sport, and more workers to its production facility. By year’s end, the company claims that a smaller LX20 will be available for public sale.
Sean McCoy director of marketing for the company adds, “We’re looking forward to connecting our newest models with a more family-focused customer. Equally important, as we add new boats, we also add new dealers and ultimately new jobs. ”
With a full compliment of bay boats ranging from 19’ to 25’ along with the SX239 offshore, all Sea Born boats are handcrafted using all composite materials and include a ten-year limited hull warranty. Also, according to company sources, participating dealers are offering cash incentives and rebates on select Sea Born models throughout the end of the year.
