WASHINGTON, Mo., Dec 20, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Xtreme Companies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: XTME) announced today the introduction of the new 29 and 34 foot center console Fire-Rescue and Patrol boats. The newer models will complement Xtreme's existing 12 and 15 foot lines. The larger boats will be built using the patented D-DC hulls with outboard engines offered by Challenger Offshore.
Xtreme CEO Kevin Ryan stated, "In response to recommendations from existing customers such as the New York Port Authority and the Marine Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department, we have added the 29 and 34 foot center console Fire-Rescue and Patrol boats to our line. Until now, when first responder agencies and departments have inquired about larger vessels, we could not fulfill the requests. By utilizing the exceptional sea keeping performance of the D-DC hull technology, we now have the capability to offer larger vessels, with better fuel efficiency, greater range and top end performance than our competitors offering similar sized boats." He added, "We believe that with the depth now of our product line, we should be able to spur additional growth within this expanding market segment."
