Sea Ray recognizes stable of Top 100 dealers

Sea Ray announced that 26 of its dealers were recognized by Boating Industry magazine when it released its 2012 list of Top 100 Dealers in North America.

Among the notable achievements by Sea Ray dealers, Boating Industry noted that Port Harbor Marine of South Portland, Maine, was chosen as the Best Place to Work and that the Sail & Ski Center of Austin, Texas, was honored for Best Boat Show Strategy.

Sea Ray dealer Prince William Marine Sales of Woodbridge, Va., was named to the Top 100 Dealers Hall of Fame. Prince William had been named Boating Industry’s Dealer of the Year for the last two years. It joins MarineMax, the first Sea Ray dealership to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007.

The Top 100 Dealers list is an annual ranking of dealerships unsurpassed in business operations, customer service, professionalism and all the characteristics that go along with them, according to Boating Industry, a leading marine trade publication.

“We are very proud of the fact that nearly one out of every four dealers on this year’s Top 100 Dealers list is a Sea Ray dealer. That’s remarkable,” Sea Ray president Rob Parmentier said in a statement. “And we now have two of the three Hall of Fame inductees. Congratulations to Prince William, MarineMax and all of our top dealers.

“The Sea Ray brand is defined by workmanship, customer engagement and service of the highest order,” Parmentier continued. “The recognition of Boating Industry’s Top 100 Dealers list emphasizes the commitment our dealers have in supporting our brand and our customers.”
