Cobalt unveils Marker One pontoon, honors top dealers


 

More than 400 Cobalt Boats dealer participants from across the US, Canada, and other International locations traveled to The Chateau on the Lake Resort and Spa on Table Rock Lake in Missouri as the company unveiled its 2015 boats, including its entry into the pontoon market, the Marker One.

“We are fortunate to have almost 100% attendance from our dealer partners and we appreciate them taking a few days out of their schedules to attend our meeting,” said Paxson St. Clair, CEO of Cobalt Boats. “We would like to thank our host, The Harbor Marina. The Harbor owns multiple marinas on Table Rock Lake including the Chateau Marina providing a perfect venue for Cobalt. This year we welcomed not only a huge percentage of our domestic dealers, but were pleased to have dealers from Canada, Europe, South Africa, and Latin America. The meeting was the world premiere of three new Cobalt models and two new Marker One Platform Series models. Our dealer partners are enthusiastic about the prospects of the upcoming selling season including the addition of the Marker One brand.”

See below for a video on the Marker One.

Cobalt also recognized its top dealers with several awards.

The Top Ten awards are based on a combination of the CSI score and annual sales volume. The World’s Largest Cobalt Dealer and the number one spot in the Top Ten Dealer awards, for the third year in a row, went to Singleton Marine Group, Buford, Georgia. Singleton Marine Group is a family owned business and has been a Cobalt dealer since the 1996 model year.

The remaining Top Ten Dealer awards:

  • Arrowhead Yacht Club & Boats Sales
  • Parks Marina
  • Gordy’s Marina
  • Premier Marine
  • Village Marina
  • Boats by George
  • Seattle Boat Company
  • Slalom Shop
  • Walker’s Point Marina

Cobalt recognized SportBas from Chile as the Top International Dealer worldwide.

Also honored were the Customer Satisfaction Award recipients. Independent of sales volume and based solely on CSI scores, dealers must achieve a Net Promoter Score of 75 percent or above, out of a possible 100, in the last quarter of the model year. Cobalt recognized 72 percent of the dealer organization, 28 of which maintained a perfect score of 100.

Each year a single dealership receives an award which represents a special effort to ensure customer satisfaction and as a result, increases their CSI score. The 2014 Most Improved CSI Award was presented to Boulder Boats in Las Vegas, NV.

The top CSI honors for the Central Sales Region was also the Worldwide CSI Award winner achieving a 100% score for the second year in a row. This award was presented to Gordy’s Lakefront Marina, Lake Geneva, WI.

The Western Region CSI honors went to David’s Sport Center in Oklahoma City, OK.

The South Eastern Region CSI Award was presented to Rambo Marine, Hazel Green, AL.

The North Eastern CSI Award was presented to Modern Marine, Nashville, TN.

The Regional CSI Award for International dealers went to Boote Pfister in Germany.

Rookie of the Year Award is given to the first year dealer with top ranking sales. The 2014 award was awarded to Top Notch Marine, Pompano Beach, Florida.

The Darlene Briggs Woman of the Year Awarded to Gordy's Boats Associate

 

It is with great pleasure and excitement that Cobalt Boats congratulates Rallee Whowell-Chupich from Gordy’s Boats, who was recognized for her lifelong commitment to customer care and excellence in the marine industry. The Darlene Briggs Woman of the Year award was presented to Whowell at the Marine Dealer Conference.

The award is in honor of the late Darlene Briggs, of Wayzata, Minn., who was admired for her tireless dedication to the marine industry. To honor her memory, the Darlene Briggs Woman of the Year award was founded in 1987. It is presented annually to an outstanding woman who is actively involved in the marine industry at any level. It recognizes "long and devoted service, untiring commitment, and the advancement of women in the marine business."

Each woman who applies has to be nominated by either her dealership or affiliate. These nominated women are active in the marine industry either from manufacturing or retail, but also active in the industry and local community. Family and personal accomplishments are also of key importance.

Once nominated, the application is completed and submitted to the selection committee.  The recipient is recognized at the Marine Dealer Conference at a luncheon and presented an award and a monetary gift for further education.

This is a highly sought after award for active women in the industry and Cobalt Boats congratulates Whowell on this monumental achievement. We would like to recognize that the award was passed from the 2012 Woman of the Year, Cobalt’s own Debbie Meigs. Debbie has been a loyal and amazing Cobalt associate for 40 years, and is a customer care specialist.  Cobalt congratulates these women for being the best of the best, and we look forward to carrying on Cobalt’s tradition of excellence for many years to come.
