Breaking News, Cincinnati Ohio, Eustis Florida. We just got official word on a wonderful move for all of us in the classic boat community. Our long time supporters and just plain good guys at Antique Boat Center are putting there money where our hearts are! Below is the official news to the Woody Boater community.
“Antique Boat Center (ABC) is very excited to announce we have reached agreement to acquire Rejuvenation Woodworks (RW) of Eustis Florida, a leader in the business of preservation and restoration of wooden boats. Rob Lyons of ABC stated “The combination of the talent, knowledge and experience of the two companies will uniquely serve our customers in all aspects of sales, service and restoration of antique and classic boats. We are very fortunate to add Richard and his organization to the ABC Family
Richard Arnold says “This new team will greatly enhance RW’s ability to continue providing the highest level of customer satisfaction and provide a much broader service offering for years to come.” The transaction is expected to close on or about March 1st and be celebrated by all the Sunnyland Annual Boat Festival in March. Please stop by “The Antique Boat Center at Rejuvenation Woodworks” when in Florida.
In 2015 the Antique Boat Center is celebrating 25 years of business. The addition of Rejuvenation Woodworks is just one of the many changes that ABC has implemented to better serve and help to sustain the hobby. Throughout 2015 you will see many new ideas that will create excitement and interest as we launch several new ad campaigns, a new ABC Website, a new show schedule and many other initiatives focused on the growth of classic boating. All of this enables ABC to be successful for the next 25 years.
Woohooo from Woody Boater. This is a huge sign of progress and growth in the culture. Richard Arnold is a great guy, this is a culture match made for sure. You will now be able to take your boat to Florida which for many is a closer drive and warmer in the winter.
And if you have yet to visit the location in Eustis, it’s a must see! Maybe the coolest building in the culture. Of course one more reason to show up for the show March 26th -28th
If you have yet to sign up, we recommend you do so, this will be a very well attended show. With the price of gas low, the economy picking up, and COBRAS! It’s gonna be a great show.
