Highs and Lows from 2013: Mike Livorsi

For the past 25 years, Mike Livorsi, founder of Livorsi Marine in Grayslake, Ill., has remained focused on creating the highest-quality, most-reliable products in the marine marketplace. Just this year, Livorsi Marine implemented a number of new coating and anodizing processes to make its highly regarded controls even better. The company also keeps rolling out new products and branching into new segments of the industry beyond go-fast race and pleasure boats. Mike Livorsi said he’s expecting 2014 to be even better.

This year Livorsi Marine rolled out a full line of electronic side mount controls, including custom versions for tow-boat company's such as Tige (center) and Nautique (right).

High: Once again, Livorsi Marine has had a great year broadening our product line with the ski- and tow-boat market. We introduced our full electronic EEC billet controls to Malibu Boats, Nautique Boat Company, Tige Boats and Centurion Boats. These stylish controls are fully electric for smooth and safe shifting and throttling. We believe the new electronic side-mount controls will be a platform for us to penetrate other markets.

Low: Beyond the slow growth in our traditional markets, with the government sequester there was not much spending with OEM builders and retrofitting military/interceptor vessels and workboats. The good thing is that we used that time to engineer new and innovative products that will be ready for the 2014/2015 season.
