We are very pleased to announce our designation as one of the Top 100 Marine Dealers by Boating Industry Magazine for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
The Top 100 ranking recognizes those marine dealers that are unsurpassed in
overall business operations, customer service, marketing and professionalism.
"The Boating Industry Top 100 has, in short order, become the most coveted
award in the marine market," explained Tammy Galvin, vice president of Affinity
Boating Media. "Marine dealers are on the front line with consumers every day,
and this is one way we can help provide much needed benchmarking information
for all other dealers to measure themselves against."
"While most industry awards are given to the dealers that sell the most boats,
our Top 100 program is much more qualitatively focused," said Matt Gruhn, editor
in chief of Boating Industry. "By leveling the playing field for all dealers, consumers
can identify the dealers that can best deliver on the dream that boat ownership
promises." Boating Industry's editorial staff reviewed almost 350 applications,
taken from more than 3,000 nominations.
The boating industry's future depends now more than ever on consumer's ability
to find dependable dealers capable of exceeding their sales experience and service
expectations for years to come. These consumers now have a trusted source they
can turn to, thanks to Boating Industry magazine's fourth-annual Top 100 Marine
Dealers list. The marine dealer ranking has resulted in an incredibly powerful group
that collectively generates more than $1.8 billion in annual retail sales.
