MARYVILLE, TN (October 30, 2007) ~ The 2008 model line of Supra boats is now equipped with an undeniably important  industry-leading feature, the Five Star Protection plan. The Five Star Protection plan is the longest, most comprehensive factory supported limited warranty in the tournament tow boat market today.

Rick Tinker, President of Skier’s Choice, manufacturer of Supra boats explains: “Our Lean transformation encourages us to go and see what the market wants. To that end, we surveyed over 1,000 owners of tournament boats. What we heard is that they want quality, reliability, and performance. The Five-Star Protection plan speaks directly to our product quality, and to our confidence in Supra’s ability to deliver best-in-class performance.”

The Five Star Protection plan has three critical component parts:

    HULL:                Limited Lifetime
    ENGINE & DRIVE TRAIN:    Five Years (transferable to a second owner)
    COMPONENTS:        Five Years (limited)

Protection plan coverage applies to parts and labor costs.

“Quality isn’t defined by a clever marketing slogan,” said Michael Littman, Skier’s Choice Marketing Director. “It’s the result of product development, engineering, production, and management all focused together on excellence. This Five Star Protection plan proves that what we say about Supra is what we believe about Supra. It’s simply the best-built, best-backed tournament boat on the water today.”

A two-time recipient of the National Marine Manufacturing Association Customer Satisfaction Index award, Supra boats are trusted by leading pro riders like Josh Sanders, Ben Greenwood, and Trevor Hansen. Supra’s are used to pull the WWA World Wakeboarding championship, the Gravity Games, and INT and NWL amateur events.

“Supra Launch models come loaded” said Matt Brown, Product Development Manager at Skier’s Choice. “Perfect Pass speed control, Smart Plate, Gravity III Ballast, Docking, Navigation and Courtesy Lights, color matched trailers and four different Indmar engine options, all with EFI standard. A buyer gets a whole lot of boat for their money with a Supra. The Five-Star Protection plan pretty much completes the package.”
