Michigan-based Walstrom Marine, Tiara Yachts’ longest-standing dealer, was named one of Tiara’s top 10 dealers at a recent dealer meeting just as the dealership prepares for its 70th anniversary in 2016.

Longtime Walstrom yacht broker Brian Granger again joined the top 10 in sales.

"We are thankful to have such great customers and employees that make winning awards like this possible,” Walstrom Marine president David Lyle said in a statement.

The meeting also served as the dealer launch of the new Tiara Q44 Adventure Yacht, which is scheduled for its public introduction at the Nov. 5-9 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Q44 is the only yacht currently available in the new Adventure Yacht category and is the brainchild of Tiara founder and chairman Leon Slikkers.
