Phoenix Bass Boats announced today it has agreed to a sponsorship deal with Bassmaster Elite Series pro Davy Hite.
“Davy and I have a relationship that goes back decades in the boat business,” Gary Clouse, Phoenix Boats President, said in a release. “He has an outstanding reputation and an equally impressive list of angling credentials. We are proud to be bringing someone with Davy’s experience and perspective into our family.”
The two-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year and winner of the 1998 Forrest Wood Cup and 1999 Bassmaster Classic is excited about the switch to Phoenix.
“After 20 years as a pro angler, I know bass boats and I am blown away by Phoenix’s quality and passion for building the best boats possible,” Hite said. “I am also amazed by the success and growth they have achieved in the tough economic times we’ve seen the past few years.”
Phoenix Boats is currently in the process of unveiling their 2013 lineup from their new headquarters in Winchester, Tenn., where it recently moved into a modern, 75,000-square-foot facility on 10 acres in central Tennessee.
