Legacy Lake Yacht

Published in the January 2013 Issue January 2013 News

Legacy Lake Yacht has always believed in giving a person everything he needs on a boat standard, which has helped them continue to grow over the years. Its boats are designed to plane through the water with a highly maneuverable hull and the standard bow thruster helps aid docking in windy conditions.

Legacy Lake Yacht Sales has been around since 1975 and is currently one of the largest boat dealers in the four-state area. They have built 29 boats for river cruising, lake cruising and Intracoastal waterways, and efforts span the difference between fiberglass and aluminum boats.

The parent company Kentuckiana Yacht Sales in Kentucky was founded after being the largest Gibson dealer for 17 years and wanting to bring its own design to the market. The first boat was launched in 2004 with models ranging from 58 to 95 feet.

The boating business has picked up more than expected, even though the houseboat market is still at an all-time low. Legacy has seen a few good signs of business picking up, especially in the used houseboat market.
