Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Rec Boat Holdings and Boston Whaler.

Rec Boat Holdings named Kingston, Ontario-based The Boat Warehouse as its largest Four Winns retailer for the 2011 model year.

The Boat Warehouse, a Four Winns dealer for 18 years, has been awarded the coveted top dealer award multiple times.

“We’re extremely proud to have a prestigious dealership such as The Boat Warehouse in the Four Winns retail network,” Rec Boat Holdings group president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “Dave Mayhew and his team are truly dedicated to our brand and have embraced our new direction with tremendous enthusiasm. They continue to achieve solid retail sales results due to their commitment and sales and service expertise.”

Four Winns dealers were recognized for sales achievement at their recent dealer meeting, held in Cadillac, Mich. The Boat Warehouse serves all of the greater Toronto, Ottawa, Barrie and Peterborough areas with two locations.

“The Boat Warehouse and Four Winns has been a great partnership since beginning our relationship in 1993.
