Nautical Ventures honored by Finnish boatbuilder

Nautical Ventures said it received the Best International Dealer Award from Axopar Boats.

Nautical Ventures said it received the Best International Dealer Award from Axopar Boats during the Finland-based builder’s recent international dealer meeting.

Axopar Boats, of Helsinki, hosted 65 dealers from around the world last week and recognized Nautical Ventures for sales, service and customer satisfaction.

“Since taking on the line just over a year ago, Nautical Ventures has consistently demonstrated exceptional marketing ability to deliver our Axopar message to the American marketplace,” Kaj Ström, of Axopar Boats, said in a statement. “With over 100 boats sold in just over a year, Nautical Ventures has outpaced every other dealer in the world.”

Axopar Boats builds three models from 24 to 37 feet in several deck configurations.

“We’re honored to receive this award,” said Nautical Ventures vice president Jeff Garcia, who attended the conference at Axopar’s manufacturing facility in Auguston, Poland.

“Since taking on the line we’ve worked very hard to ensure that all new Axopar shipments meet our high standards of quality control and that delivery to our customers is an experience second to none.”
