Not only is Ranger, Stratos, and Triton owned by Nitro but now Basscat has been sold.

Unbelieveable! If it was posted a few days later, I'd have thought it was an April Fools joke.
I really figured they would have stayed a family owned company as long as Rick Pierce was around.
Be curious as to the reason behind it. The news story had a pretty generic statement from Rick.

I was kind of "shocked" since reading random statements about how BC would always remain a privately owned family business. But we all know money talks.

Being a Basscat owner, I am not happy hearing this news. They sold to a reputable boat company that is also known for their great service so who knows what effect this will have. There will be stock holders involved though and with every company I worked for that merged with another, when stock holders get involved, it usually went down hill in a few years.

Correct Craft bought BassCat. I haven't seen any negatives to the move so far. Rick Pierce is still in charge of day-to-day operations to my knowledge. And now the BassCat brand can live on for many years. The Pierce family built one of the best brands of bass boats in existence. I don't know why Correct Craft would want to change a thing.
The BassCat quality and customer service is still as stellar as always.
