Atlantic Marine of Wilmington, N.C., earned the Gold Anchor Sales Award, Grady-White Boats’ top sales award worldwide.

The dealership also will be recognized with membership in Grady-White’s Admiral’s Circle for model year 2016 — the sixth consecutive year Atlantic Marine has earned that achievement.

The Gold Anchor award signifies that the dealer’s overall rank is the highest in sales dollars among Grady-White dealerships.

“Grady-White is extremely pleased to grant these awards to demonstrate our great partnership with Atlantic Marine,” Grady-White sales vice president Joey Weller said in a statement. “They have continuously proven to be more than up for the task of balancing and combining superior customer relations with a continued emphasis on business growth.”

“In addition, they have helped to carry on the Grady-White spirit of delivering the ultimate boating experience by marketing in a top-class manner, utilizing a superior knowledge of the products and taking great care of their customers,” Weller said.
