Thanks to a push from a couple of its dealers—Day’s Boat Sales in Frankfort, Ky., and Lakeside Marine and Motorsports in Gainesville, Ga.—the crew at Glasstream Powerboats has started to ramp up its focus on building its offshore-worthy center consoles with more customization and performance-oriented features than ever before.
By no means is Glasstream abandoning its family boating mentality, but the Dothan, Ala.-based company is most definitely expanding its footprint in the boating world. This year alone, the company’s first poker run edition 360 model and the first Glasstream with two rows of bolster seats took part in the Desert Storm Poker Run in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., at the end of April and there were several models from the boat manufacturer on hand for the Lake Cumberland Thunder Run in June hosted at State Dock Marina in Jamestown, Ky., thanks to Bill Day and the team at Day’s Boat Sales.
The Glasstream participation was included in my coverage of both of those events—in fact, my OffshoreOnly.com column at the end of April focused on the Lakeside Marine trip to Arizona. Most recently, following appearances at the Florida Powerboat Club’s Emerald Coast Powerboat Poker Run in August and the Lake Cumberland Poker Run in September, the Glasstream team went all in for the Florida Powerboat Club Key West Poker Run with Day running his dealership’s brand new 328 SCX model that was loaded with high-end features.
