Boat Buyer's Guide 2012: Lowe Pontoons
The “Lowe” Down
Carl and Dianna Lowe founded the Lowe in 1971, with one goal in mind: build high-value aluminum boats to fit the "on-water" lifestyle of families and anglers. And from day one, they got it right. Fast forward forty years, and Lowe is a true leader in the aluminum boat market. Lowe Boats is the first full-line aluminum boat company to earn ISO certification for its approach to product quality and constant process improvement. Plus, after earning 19 CSI awards, Lowe Boats is truly focused on customer satisfaction.
Today, second and third generation customers return to Lowe Boats to purchase where their parents and grandparents purchased, knowing they can count on the value, performance, features and fun they grew up with. These satisfied customers are purchasing from some dealers that have been with Lowe throughout the 40-year ride.
Lowe Boats is very proud and celebrates multiple achievements throughout its 40-year history. For 2012, there's another evolution going on. Harnessing the power of our name, we are relaunching our full line of pontoons under the Lowe umbrella. For the first time, our SS Cruisers, SF Fishing Pontoons, GS value boats and our all new game-changer, the Platinum Series. All these models will be marketed under Lowe Pontoons.
In our Mod V bass boat line, we've added sleek new Stinger HP models, offering performance-tuned pad hulls, reworked deck layouts, new consoles and upholstery. Deep V models have been totally rethought and reworked with new consoles, deck layouts and seating —with sharp new graphics to call them out as ALL-NEW for 2012! And our all-new Frontier Series Jon boats feature stunning new camo patterns in tiller, side-console or center console layouts.
Moving into our 5th decade, Lowe has become a technological leader in the aluminum boat market. Through the years, this manufacturer has achieved many milestones that have pushed not only the company, but the entire industry forward.
