Carefree Boat Sales Joins Sailfish Boats Dealer Network

Seminole Marine Group, manufacturers of the award-winning Sailfish line of family-friendly fishing boats has announced the appointment of Carefree Boat Sales as its authorized dealer for the Atlanta Metro and Greater Georgia area.

“Carefree Boat Sales is the type of professional organization that we look for when selecting a new dealer,” says Seminole Marine Group President Paul Hoppes. “They have an aggressive, hard working, sales team and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction.”

Carefree Boat Sales is located in Buford, Georgia on Lake Lanier and offers new boat sales, quality used boats, a boat club, complete service parts and accessories.

As a Sailfish dealer, Carefree Boat Sales will now offer the full line of Sailfish Center Consoles, Dual Consoles, Walk-Arounds and Bay Boats ranging from 19 to 32-feet. Sailfish boats are built to exacting top tier standards and offer an excellent value in terms of selling price and overall cost of ownership.

“We’re excited about the Sailfish line,” says Carefree Boat Sales Owner David Rothwell. “It is a well-built, stylish, feature-packed product – perfect for fishing, family-fun and cruising.”

Sailfish is introducing its new 236CC to the Georgia market at the upcoming Atlanta International Boat Show. The 236CC combines the Sailfish legacy with the latest innovations in center console design, to deliver a truly amazing fishing platform. With its sleek, dynamic profile and 6th generation VDS hull, plus an amazingly functional layout and solid Sail-Tech construction, the 236CC is now the gold standard in the 23’ class.

“The 236CC is functional, comfortable and perfect for both offshore and inshore fishing and family fun,” explains Rothwell. “This is the perfect boat for the Lake Lanier and Altoona Lake area.”

The Sailfish line was designed for anglers by anglers, but in recent years, as the boating public has demanded more “softer” features – such as comfortable bow seating, stow-away tables, retractable ski poles and abundant storage – Sailfish has stepped up to the plate and today offers the most family friendly, fishing boats on the market.

“We believe that we have the right boat for the times,” says Hoppes. “Boat buyers are now demanding more overall value for their boating investment and Sailfish delivers both value and versatility.”

Aside from versatility, all Sailfish models are loaded from bow to stern with standard features that are completely absent or sold only as extras on competitive brands.

A significant feature employed by Sailfish boats is its exclusive variable stepped deadrise (VDS) hull design that actually improves lift and stability giving Sailfish boats a smoother more enjoyable ride.

Another Sailfish advantage is the intelligent ergonomic design of the each boat that enhances
comfort and functionality.

“Sailfish Boats just seem to work better,” explains Hoppes. “The placement of every feature in the boat was designed in advance – no retrofits or afterthoughts.”

Carefree Boats Sales is located at 6700 Lanier Islands Pkwy, Buford, GA and their phone number is (678) 725-3749 or visit them on the web at

“When an avid offshore fisherman hears the name “Sailfish,” the thought of a well-built center console comes to mind,”
reported in a recent online review. “Sailfish has a reputation for building boats that can handle hard offshore
runs and still come back home.

“The 320CC is a strong offshore fishing platform and a boat that a family will appreciate”, the review went on to say.
“Sailfish developed the 320CC to be an offshore center console, but for cruising, she has updated cushions and bolsters, a
large step-in head, forward-facing removable backrests and a bow table.
