Angler’s Port Marine of Warsaw, Mo., received the Lowe Boats Model Year 2018 President’s Award and was recognized as one of Lowe’s top-three performing dealers in overall sales for the model year with more than $5 million in sales.

The award was presented to Angler’s Port president Klaus Fink during a Lowe dealer event at Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., at the Lodge of Four Seasons resort. The manufacturer also introduced its 2019 fishing, pontoon, hunting and deck boats.

“Angler’s Port has quickly become a formidable representative of the Lowe Boats line-up and we look forward to its continued success offering our products,” said Ben Cast, Lowe president, in a statement. “They are setting a great example as a Lowe dealer, and at the same time, Lowe Boats have proven to be a popular choice for boaters throughout Missouri.”

Also during the event, the Boat Warehouse of Ontario, Canada, was named the World’s Largest Lowe Boats Dealer for 2018. The dealership, which has two locations, has won the honor six times in the past seven years.

“Year after year, The Boat Warehouse has proven to be a sales leader for Lowe Boats products, giving our many excellent dealer partners new performance goals to shoot for,” said Cast in another statement. “Just like the boating community knows about the long history of quality products from Lowe Boats, customers of The Boat Warehouse have become accustomed to relying on topnotch service and support from the dealer’s dedicated crew.”
