Rossiter Boats said it added three dealers, two in the United States and one in Canada.

They are Eagle Point Marina in the Irish Hills of Michigan; Yacht BC in Vancouver, British Columbia; and Mark Zeigler Yacht Sales, of Jacksonville, Fla.

“With Rossiter posting another year of growth, up 37 percent, we continue to find that our dealers are not only holding strong margins and increasing their revenue, but this year’s CSI research confirmed that 95 percent of Rossiter dealers’ customers would recommend the dealer to a friend or family member, and over 98 percent of Rossiter customers say they would recommend a Rossiter,” Rossiter Boats president and CEO Scott Hanson said in a statement.

“In fact, hardly a week goes by during the season when we do not get a call, letter or e-mail from one of our dealers’ customers regarding their personal satisfaction, telling us how much they are enjoying their Rossiter.”

Hanson also said “we are also very proud at Rossiter to point out that our warranty ratio continues to be well below the industry target, at a fraction of 1 percent of revenue in fiscal 2016, and more importantly, our dealers are very pleased with our approach to solving issues first and paying out warranty in a timely fashion, and then asking questions and taking steps to improve things going forward.”
