When looking for a boat, Stingray is a company that stands out from the crowd. Stingray boats are built to be some of the best values on the market. From its modest beginnings with a handful of craftsmen and a couple molds, Stingray has grown to offer a versatile line of boats. Through their innovation and commitment to quality, Stingray has come to be a leading boat manufacturer.
Stingray began in 1979, when Al Flink realized his dream of building boats. Since then, the company has grown to offer a full lineup of watercraft. However, through the process, Stingray has not lost its hometown roots. Located in Hartsville, South Carolina, Stingray extends hospitality to its owners. The company does not view people as buyers and sellers as you might understand a stock exchange or market. Rather, by becoming a Stingray owner you enter into the family, which consists of owners, dealers and the manufacturer. All together, people have one passion: to help each other enjoy their time on the water.
Since the construction of Flink’s first craft, Stingray has become a major boat manufacturer with many different models. Stingray has focused on perfecting the smaller size powerboat. All of their models are in the range of 18 ft. to 25 ft. Yet, within this range they offer a variety of models to choose from. There are open bows and sport decks available. Cuddies and cruisers offer a little more stability and shelter. For the adrenaline junkies, the sportboat is perfect. There also is a skiing and fishing specific model.
With a motto of “innovative quality,” Stingray seeks to stand out by making a well-built boat. As members of the National Marine Manufacturers Association, they agree to build boats that meet industry standards for safety. Of course they stand behind their work with a limited warranty. But, Stingray seeks to go beyond these standards. They strive to innovate, to improve upon existing technology.
One example of Stingray’s leadership amongst marine manufacturers is their Z-Plane Hull. This patented technology, exclusive to Stingray, improves a boat’s efficiency. Without adding additional materials, the engineers at Stingray tweaked traditional hull design. Most powerboats create air pockets around the hull. As the boat moves through the water, this reduces efficiency. By eliminating these bubbles, the propeller is able to more efficiently move the craft forward. Stingray’s patented Z-Plane Hull is only one example of many which attest to their commitment to innovation and quality.
