NMMA recognizes 2017 marine industry CSI Award winners

By National Marine Manufacturers Association

The NMMA has announced 50 recipients of the 2017 Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) Awards for excellence in customer satisfaction. Award recipients were acknowledged during the Innovation Breakfast at the 2018 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show.

The Marine Industry CSI Awards honor boat and engine manufacturers who actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to better serve their customers.

Award recipients achieved an independently-measured standard of excellence of 90 percent or higher in customer satisfaction over the past program year, based on information provided by customers purchasing a new boat or engine during the period between Jan. 1, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2017.  

Participating manufacturers must survey all new boat buyers during this period. For this reporting period, the program surveyed 140,969 customers.

“The 50 manufacturers honored here today are committed to their customers, providing unparalleled service and creating a culture of excellence in customer satisfaction,” noted Robert Newsome, vice president of engineering standards and membership for NMMA. “These companies’ dedication to their customers not only builds exceptional brand loyalty, it also helps to foster lifelong boat ownership and ultimately, maintain the integrity of the boating industry in America.”
