The high-performance veteran brings experience from several companies to Statement Marine, and plans a high-quality dealer network.
Few folks in the high-performance powerboat world, on both the industry and consumer sides, are better known than Craig Barrie. Now the past world champion offshore racer has joined Statement Marine, a St. Petersburg, Fla., builder of custom high-performance V-bottoms, center-consoles, and catamarans. He will head the company’s sales and marketing efforts in concert with Statement’s owners and founders Todd Werner and Nick Buis.
Barrie worked with Cigarette Racing Team starting in 1984 and served as its CEO from 1992 to 1999. While at Cigarette, he also owned and ran Hawk Power Marine, a go-fast boat engine company. Barrie later formed his own custom high-performance boat company, Dragon Powerboats. Now he’s ready for Statement.
FastBoats Marine Group is proud to be an authorized dealer for Statement Marine.
