Jeanneau recently held its worldwide dealer meeting in Greece and more than 300 dealers from North America and other international locations attended.

“We were proud to have such a fantastic group of dealers join us as we celebrated 60 years of boat building and another very successful year of sales,” Jenneau America president Nick Harvey said in a statement.

The French manufacturer named its top performing dealers including the 2017 Top Performing Dealer of the Year award for Jeanneau sailboats in North America, Fraser Yacht Sales in Vancouver, British Columbia. Best Growth Year Over Year honors for Jeanneau Sailboats in North America went to Florida Yacht Group, which has five locations in Palm Beach, Miami, St. Petersburg, Key West and the Bahamas.

“We appreciate and recognize the hard work from our dealers who not only sold and delivered a lot of new Jeanneaus this year but also provided outstanding service,” Jeanneau Sailboats sales manager Catherine Guiader said in a statement.

On the powerboat side, the 2017 North American Dealer of the Year Award for Jeanneau Inboard Powerboats went to Sundance Yacht Sales that has facilities in Portland, Seattle and Blaine, Washington.

“With a second consecutive year win, it was an honor for me to present the award to Nick Buck of Sundance Yacht Sales,” Jeanneau Powerboats regional sales manager Rene Julien said in a statement. “They do their best to promote the Jeanneau brand in their market and clearly they are proving to be very successful.”
