Dealers and Distributors

Eight North American dealerships earned Crestliner's Million-Dollar Club Award for 2012, an increase from the previous year in the number of winners.

The Million-Dollar Club Award winners were recognized by Crestliner president Ben Cast, who was accompanied by Brunswick Boat Group Andy Graves and Freshwater Boat Group Jeff Kinsey during the company’s recent dealer meeting in Crestliner’s home state of Minnesota.

To earn Million-Dollar Club membership, a dealer’s annual sales of Crestliner products must be in excess of $1 million.

The winners are Cedar Lake Sales, West Bend, Wis.; Free Spirit Marine, Edmonton, Alberta; H&W Marine, Flint, Texas; Ken’s Sports, Inc., Kaukauna, Wis.; Pomerleau Les Bateaux, Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec; Rapid Sport Marine, Ham Lake, Minn.; Regina Marine, Ltd., Regina, Saskatchewan; and Wilson Marine Corp., Harrison Township, Mich.

Two international dealers that attended — Baltic Marine Group, of St. Petersburg, Russia, and Berowra Waters, of Berowra Waters, Australia — earned Outstanding International Overseas Dealer Awards in recognition of their record for excellence in sales and service.
