Sunsation Fleet Ready for Desert Storm Poker Run and Street Party

Accompanied by an awfully impressive six-door Ford F650 tow vehicle, which Kort and Jessicca Wittich of Covington, La., also use to tow their 38-foot Skater Powerboats catamaran, one of the most attractive 34 CCX models from Sunsation Boats is going to be on display during the Desert Storm Poker Run Street Party this Thursday (April 23).

This Sunsation 34 CCX and its impressive tow vehicle are coming from Louisiana to Arizona for the Desert Storm Poker Run.

Not long after taking delivery of the 34-foot center console from the Algonac, Mich., builder in October, Kort Wittich decided he would bring Kort Ordered, which is powered by triple Mercury Verado 300 engines, out to Lake Havasu City, Ariz., for the Desert Storm Poker Run. It will be his first time at the event.

“I’ve always wanted to go, but Desert Storm is always the weekend before the Tickfaw 200 Poker Run and it just hasn’t been possible to do Desert Storm and our hometown run,” said Wittich, who also owns one of Sunsation’s 43-foot F4 V-bottoms. ” We’re going to use the Skater for Tickfaw this year though so that should make it easier.”

Kort and Jessicca Wittich will run their 34-foot Sunsation in the poker run.

Sunsation partner Jared Morris, who has attended the Desert Storm Poker Run several times and actually unveiled his former 36-foot Sunsation V-bottom Shake ‘N Bake at the event in 2010, is looking forward to showing off a couple of the company’s center consoles during Thursday’s Street Party and Friday’s poker run.

Joining the Wittich family and Morris are local Lake Havasu boaters Jay and Colleen Jorgensen, who own a Sunsation F4 with twin 1,075-hp Mercury Racing engines, as well as Jeff and Kim Howell, who are bringing their 34 CCX to Lake Havasu from Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.

Powered by twin Mercury Verado 300 engines, Howell’s 34-footer was painted by Visual Imagination in Missouri to match his 42-foot MTI catamaran, which he and Kim brought to Desert Storm a couple of years back.

If you’re in town for the Street Party, be sure to stop by and check out the Sunsation fleet and visit with the crew.
