SEA RAY® DEALERS CONTINUE TO LEAD BOATING INDUSTRY MAGAZINE'S TOP 100 LIST
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Nov. 11, 2011 - According to a ranking by a leading marine trade publication, four out of the five top boat dealers in North America are Sea Ray dealers -- including the number one dealer, Prince William Marine Sales, which earned the top ranking for the second consecutive year. In addition, Sea Ray dealers make up nine of the top 20 dealer rankings and 29 of the top 100, and Sea Ray dealer MarineMax Inc. remains the first dealership inducted into the Top 100 Dealers Hall of Fame, an honor worthy of the company's continued dedication to maximizing its customers' enjoyment on the water.
"We're very proud of our dealers that earned recognition on Boating Industry's Top 100 Dealers list," said Rob Parmentier, president of Sea Ray. "We are especially pleased that Prince William has been ranked as the top dealer in North America for two years in a row. The honors earned by Prince William Marine are a clear indication of the first-class support it provides to its customers. Their team works very hard at delivering superior service, along with providing critical feedback to Sea Ray to ensure that our customers receive the best possible boating experience. We congratulate Prince William on this amazing achievement.
"We work closely with all of our dealers in North America and 89 countries around the world to deliver the best ownership experience possible for customers," continued Parmentier. "The fact that we have the most dealers on this year's Top 100 list, as well as the most 2011 NMMA CSI awards, demonstrates that we and our dealers continue to dedicate ourselves to premium customer service and satisfaction."
As stated by Boating Industry magazine, "The Top 100 is an annual ranking of dealerships that are unsurpassed in overall business operations, customer service, professionalism and all the characteristics that go along with them."
"The Sea Ray brand is defined by high-end product quality, superior owner confidence and lifestyle opportunities, and the unmatched strength of our dealer network," added Parmentier. "The recognition of Boating Industry's Top 100 Dealers list reinforces the commitment our dealers have in supporting our brand and our customers."
