Malibu Boats recognized the achievements of its top-volume dealers in October at the company’s 2016 annual meeting in Miami.

Boulder Boats, which has locations in Henderson, Nev., and Mesa, Ariz., took home the President’s Award.

Malibu’s highest annual honor, the President’s Award recognizes the dealer that has shown a commitment to Malibu and Axis Wake Research for the current model year and has shown consistent excellence in every aspect of its business.

The top-volume Malibu and Axis dealer was Singleton Marine Group.

A highlight of the meeting was Malibu introducing its dealers to the new Response TXi ski boat. Two-time world slalom champ and Malibu team athlete Thomas Degasperi demonstrated the new TXi for dealers.

“We’re extremely proud of all our dealers, who continue to drive Malibu and our Axis Wake Research brand to new sales heights and introduce more people to the amazing fun of the world’s best watersports boats,” Malibu CEO Jack Springer said in a statement.

“Our dealers are really excited about our 2017 model lineup, and we’re excited about where their innovative marketing and customer-engagement efforts can take us next year.”
