FORT LAUDERDALE - Trawler and yacht builder Grand Banks Yachts recognized its top dealers at a ceremony heading into the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The top three were, in order, GB France and GB Italia in Europe; Boatworks Yacht Sales of New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island; and Grand Banks Northwest of Seattle.

Editor’s note: In a story published Friday it was incorrectly reported that many of Grand Banks’ sales this year were “factory-direct.” The sales were, in fact, a mix of retail and stock boat sales made through the company’s dealer network.
