Latitude Industries, Inc. Meets Today With Representatives From Honda-Marine

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Latitude Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LTDI), a manufacturer of high-performance, center console powerboats, is meeting today with representatives from Honda Marine to finalize and submit all pertaining paperwork including company financials to become a full OEM distributor for Honda Marine.

Latitude Industries' COO Orlando Hernandez said he's delighted to finalize and submit all paperwork to Honda-Marine and enthusiastic about the chance of uniting Latitude with Honda to provide fully rigged boat and motor packages. Honda is the 5th largest automobile manufacturer in the world as well as the largest engine-maker in the world, and while high gas prices and a weak US economy in the summer of 2008 have hurt the industry, Honda has reported a 1% sales increase while its rivals have reported double-digit losses. This type of business savvy has lead Honda to include Latitude Powerboats.

About Latitude Industries

In 1998, a joint venture between Midnight Express and Navigator Powerboats, a subsidiary of Latitude Industries, Inc., was founded to build the 39' and the 37' Wide Body Midnight Express.
