Sail Place said it received Beneteau’s Fastest Growing Sailboat Dealer of the Year Award.

Sail Place has locations in Muskegon, Mich., and Kenosha, Wis.

“We were very happy to learn of the news and accept this award,” Dave Fulbright, of Sail Place in Muskegon, said in a statement. “We’ve been a Beneteau dealer in Michigan since 2002 and have enjoyed building and growing the brand.”

“Earlier this year we added the Beneteau brand to our location in Kenosha, Wisconsin,” Tim Fulbright said. “Servicing the Chicago market, and throughout Illinois, Iowa, Indiana and Nebraska, has made for an exciting and busy season for us.”

Chris Doscher, Beneteau’s U.S. sailboat sales manager, and Laurent Fabre, president of Beneteau America, presented Tim and Dave Fulbright with the award at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis in October.

Dave Fulbright also won an individual Beneteau sales award.
