Nautique said it excelled in evaluation totals in the fields of quality, service, lead-time delivery, cost and product development.

“This award was earned on the hard work and efforts of the entire UPI Team and the dedicated partnership we have with Nautique Boats,” said Randy Morriss, UPI president, in the statement. “Year after year we focus on the importance of doing our best to support our customers and being recognized for those efforts is deeply gratifying.”
