This past November, the Marine Retailers Association of America hosted the Marine Dealership Conference and Expo and Top 100 Award presentations in Orlando, Florida. Legendary Marine of Destin, Florida was named Dealer of the Year for the second year in a row qualifying Legendary to be inducted into the Boating Industry “Hall of Fame”. Their rapid growth and focus on constant improvement was noted as the dominant winning attribute by the award panel. This accomplishment marks the first time that a Cobalt dealer has been recognized as a Hall of Fame company.
In addition, Cobalt dealers were recognized throughout the night, partially due to the massive increases in market share and sales growth that Cobalt dealers have experienced. Gordy’s Lakefront Marine of Fontana, Wisconsin saw its standard-setting service department named the very best in North America for the second year in a row, and Gordy’s was also ranked as the #2 dealer in North America. Park’s Marina, Seattle Boat Company, and Strong’s Marine also ranked in the Top 10. Cobalt was the dominant boat builder in the Top 10 with the Top 2 rankings and 5 of the top 10 dealerships representing Cobalt. In addition, 18 dealers in the Top 100 are authorized Cobalt dealerships. The Darlene Briggs award for the woman of the year in the boating industry was presented to Rallee Whowell - Chupich, from Gordy’s Boats recognizing her lifelong commitment to customer care and excellence in the industry. Strong’s Marine received a special recognition for its Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Cobalt Boats congratulates these outstanding businesses and associates for their allegiance to the highest standards of integrity, knowledge of product, and willingness to go above and beyond in the service of today’s sophisticated customers.
