Sea Ray congratulated its dealership network for a successful 2015, a year that included the introduction of several new boats, including the new L590, 400 Sundancer and 400 Fly, and the announcement of a new revitalized Sea Ray Owners Club.

“We are fortunate to have such an incredible network of truly talented, dedicated people representing the Sea Ray brand,” Sea Ray group president Tim Schiek said in a statement. “Our dealers are traditionally the first line of communication with our customers and maintain a vibrant relationship with those customers. Our success is made possible by their hard work and commitment to providing superior service and sales expertise.”

The company issued awards to the top Sea Ray dealers for the 2015 model year. In addition, four dealerships scored a perfect 100 in the Customer Satisfaction Index Awards.

The top five MarineMax locations were Pompano; Long Island Lindenhurst; Fort Myers; Lake of the Ozarks; and Clearwater.

The top five independent dealers in North America were Sun Country Marine; Hall Marine Group; Clarks Landing; Lake Union Sea Ray; and M&P Mercury.

The top five international dealers were Marina Marbella in Spain, the United Kingdom and Sweden; Performance Boats in Mexico; National Yachts Co. in Egypt; Queensland Marine Centre in Australia; and Alpha Marine in Guatemala.

The four that earned a CSI score of 100 were Deep Creek Marina; Sail & Ski; and Hall Marine in Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga.

“The dedication, commitment to excellence and passion for boating displayed by our dealers is reflected in their business success and ours. We look forward to continued partnership success in 2016 and beyond,” said Brad Anderson, senior vice president of global sales, marketing and customer service.
