Two years ago, Jared Morris of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was not only running Shake N Bake, his new Sunsation Boats 36 Dominator XRT with Mercury Racing HP700SCi engines, at events across the country, he was a large part of Sunsation’s marketing efforts at events such as the Desert Storm Poker Run in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., and the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout in Missouri.
The stunning 36-foot V-bottom won its class at the 2011 Shootout and was featured on the cover of Powerboat magazine. Obviously Morris loved the boat, which was his step up from the 2008 Baja Marine 35 Outlaw he owned before buying the Sunsation. Morris owned three prior Baja models—a 29-, 30- and 33-footer.
Today, Morris is more than just another Sunsation customer or family member, as brothers Wayne and Joe Schaldenbrand like to say. That’s because he is now an owner in the company with the Schaldenbrands.
