Minneapolis, Minn. – Marina Holdings LLC, holding company for Yarmouth Boat Yard and Moose Landing Marina, 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 boat dealers in North America these 100 dealers are the best of the best,” said Jonathan Sweet, director of the Boating Industry Top 100 Program. “The Top 100 is about more than revenue. While the financial success of the companies on the list is important, we’re also looking at factors including overall business acumen, marketing strategies, service department efficiency and profitability, customer service, and dedication to the industry. These Top 100 dealers stand out for their best practices in all areas of their businesses.
“I’m tremendously proud of our crew for earning this honor,” stated Steve Arnold, owner of Yarmouth Boat Yard, Moose Landing Marina, and Freedom Boat Club of Maine. “It’s their hard work and dedication that made this possible,” he continued. “Our team is always striving to provide exceptional customer service and making continuous improvements to our facilities. We look forward to achieving many more years on this distinguished list.”
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.
“This year’s Top 100 is stronger than we’ve ever seen in the history of the program,” Sweet said. Total revenue for the 2018 Top 100 dealers and Hall of Fame was at its highest level in the history of the program, topping $3.5 billion.
