Tiara Yachts holds annual dealer conference

Tiara Yachts announced a record year in retail sales and market-share growth during its annual dealer conference, which was themed “Modern Legacy.”

The conferees included domestic and international dealers, top retail sales representatives and key Tiara Yachts vendors.

The event focused on year-end sales results and the introduction of the all-new Q 44 Adventure Yacht, a concept born from the mind of Tiara Yachts founder Leon Slikkers. The meeting’s theme connected Slikkers’ boatbuilding heritage with the Tiara products of today.

“The personal relationships, company culture and collaboration of ideas shared between key business partners has proven to be a valuable experience in continuing our momentum into our 2016 model year. Thank you to Tiara Yachts’ dealer organization for making 2015 a great year in business,” S2 Yachts president and CEO Tom Slikkers said in a statement. S2 is the parent company of Tiara.

Tiara Yachts recognized its top 10 dealers, along with the top salesmen, for their retail sales performance during the 2015 model year.

Galati Yachts was recognized as the No. 1 Tiara Yachts dealer worldwide for the third consecutive year. The dealership was also recognized as a Boating Industry Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee; it was named Top 100 Dealer of the Year consecutively in 2007 and 2008.

“As a multi-generation, family-owned business, Tiara Yachts shares our passion for this industry, as well as our company values and business philosophies. We are extremely proud of our results with the Tiara brand,” Galati Yacht Sales president Joseph Galati said. “Their innovative products allow us to showcase our strengths in sales and customer support, enabling us to grow our market share with the Tiara products and exceed the expectations of today’s demanding consumer. We have high expectations in our performance at all levels of business, and Tiara Yachts continues to deliver an exceptional on-water experience to all our customers.”
