Limestone Boat Company, the resurging heritage brand headquartered in Collingwood, ON, has been moving at a breakneck pace since their relaunch in September 2020.
Today they announced another milestone with the unveiling of a brand new model in the Limestone lineup, the L-200R, as well as the launch of their Aquasport line into the Canadian market.
“We are extremely excited for the opportunity to offer Aquasport Boats in the Canadian market,” said Scott Hanson, CEO of The Limestone Boat Company Limited in a press release. “When we took on the Aquasport Boats brand we knew the importance of its history and how truly impactful the brand has been over the past 60 plus years, but we also had a plan for its future. Keeping in mind the refined ruggedness of the Aquasport hulls as well as it’s family-friendly amenities, we wanted to elevate the brand in its current market as well as push it to all new markets. The Toronto International Boat Show is our first opportunity do so and our plans for growing the Aquasport Boats brand - as well as Limestone ® Boats and parent company Limestone Boat Company - does not stop there.”
The L-200R, meanwhile, will make its debut at the Chesapeake Bay Boat Show taking place January 21st- 23rd, 2022. It will mark the second 20-foot boat in the Limestone lineup after the launch of the L-200CC in 2021.
