Bill Yeargin, CEO of Correct Craft, said: “Our team is thrilled to represent not only our industry, but also Florida and North Carolina in The White House. We build uniquely American-made products which are sold throughout the US and dozens of countries across the world. Our American-made quality is second to none.

“I look forward to sharing the story of our company and boats with the President, Vice President and other officials. I am certain they will be impressed. Our Parker and Nautique teams could not be more excited to show off our product at The White House.”
