Sunstream acquires Sarasota Boating World

Sunstream Boat Lifts, a leading manufacturer of hydraulic boat lifts and the SwiftShield Automatic Boat Cover System, has acquired Sarasota Boating World in Florida, USA.

“The acquisition of Sarasota Boating World will greatly assist Sunstream in expanding our SwiftShield Automatic Boat Cover product line by insourcing the digital design and manufacturing of custom covers for SwiftShield, and will further enhance our supply chain,” says Ken Hey, CEO of Sunstream.

“We look forward to expanding our presence in the southeast region and supporting our dealers with more efficient access to Sunstream products.”

Sunstream says the digital cover technology acquired will enable its dealers to take 3D scans of a boat using an iPhone. The scans can then be uploaded to create a 3D model, digitally design a boat cover, precisely cut it, and store the data for easy future replacement and reducing reduce lead times.

Stefan Petrov of Sarasota Boating World, comments: “The team at Sarasota Boating World is thrilled to be part of Sunstream’s explosive growth in Florida, especially with SwiftShield and the new Helix high-speed hydraulic piling lift. Having worked with Sunstream products for years, we are firm believers in the Sunstream vision of making boating easier and more enjoyable.”
