Lake Union Sea Ray Named to 2016 Boating Industry Top 100 list
Recognized as one of the top boat dealers in North America
Minneapolis, Minn. December 7, 2016– Lake Union Sea Ray has been named one of the Top 100 dealers in North America by Boating Industry, the leading trade publication for the marine industry.
“From the thousands of dealers in North America – and hundreds of nominations – these 100 dealers are the best of the best,” said Boating Industry Editor in Chief Jonathan Sweet. “These dealers excel not only at the business of selling boats, but also delivering a great customer experience.”
Lake Union Sea Ray has been serving Western Washington boaters for over 30 years. In addition to achieving Boating Industry Magazine’s coveted Top 100 Dealer Award for the 11th year, they continue to work hard as industry leaders which is reflected in their recent recertification in achieving Platinum Brunswick Dealer status and Five Star Marine Industry Certified status.
The Top 100 is the only independent ranking of boat dealers in North America. The list recognizes dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics, customer service and more. The Boating Industry Top 100 has recognized the top dealers in North America every year since 2005.
“As the Boating Industry Top 100 celebrates its 12th year, the dealers on the list are stronger than they have been since before the Great Recession,” Sweet said. “The Top 100 and Hall of Fame reached nearly $2.7 billion in total revenue in 2015, surpassing last year’s total by more than $100 million. These dealers also faced stiff competition to make the list, with the highest number of applications since the recession.”
