Thayer’s Marine in Norwich, Conn., was named the top single-market dealer for Stratos Boats

Thayer’s Marine in Norwich, Conn., was named the top single-market dealer for Stratos Boats at the builder’s recent national dealer conference.

The award, given to the dealership with the highest average of purchases and sales in a single market, was presented to dealership owners Rich and Dolores Thayer by Stratos brand manager Jason Bragg.

"Being Stratos' top dealer in a smaller and highly competitive market such as the one they are in really showcases just how great a dealer they truly are," Bragg said in a statement. "They exhibit excellent customer service in all areas of their business and are great ambassadors for the Stratos brand."

Thayer’s Marine provides equipment and service for customers throughout New England.
