KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Bayliner’s 2013 “Summit at the Lake” event brought together more than 250 Bayliner dealers from across the globe to usher in the 2014 model‐year boats and to toast numerous successes from this past year. The fun‐filled event was held Sept. 10‐12 at the beautiful Lake Lanier Islands Resort in Buford, Ga.
“This year we wanted to embrace a fresh perspective and try something new,” said Keith Yunger, Bayliner’s president, “which is why Lake Lanier was the perfect setting to host our valued dealers from around the world for two full days of boating, business and entertainment. It was an ideal balance of business and pleasure—not to mention the flawless weather.”
“The most compelling aspect of the Dealer Meeting, however, was recognizing and commemorating the dealers for their hard work in the field and their dedication and loyalty to the Bayliner brand. This effort is what makes our brand ‘So Worth It!’ and earns Bayliner CSI Awards year‐after‐year,” said Yunger.
