New England dealer honored by Monterey Boats

Monterey Boats recently ranked Bassett Yacht & Boat Sales fourth among its top five domestic sales-performing dealers for the 2013 model year and fifth among the top 10 CSI dealers during Monterey’s annual dealer conference at the Boca Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Fla.

Bassett, which has locations in Old Saybrook, Conn., and Springfield, Mass., achieved its CSI ranking by earning high marks from its returned surveys for the model year. The surveys rate each dealer on the customer’s sales and service experience.

Bassett also was recognized as one of Monterey’s top dealers because of outstanding overall model-year sales.

“Bassett Yacht & Boat Sales is an outstanding dealership. They have an aggressive growth initiative, demonstrate excellent business practices and the determination to succeed in today’s market,” Monterey co-chairman Charles Marshall said in a statement. “It is an honor for us to be able to award them, and we are proud to have them represent our brand.”
