Boating Industry names 2020 Top 100 Dealers

Boating Industry announced its 2020 Top 100 dealers during an unprecedented virtual celebration on Nov. 17, 2020.

“In our 16th year of recognizing the Top 100, things are certainly different, but one thing remains the same, the dealers on the Top 100 list just keep getting better,” said Top 100 program director Adam Quandt. “Most importantly every dealer on this year's Top 100 continuously pushes itself to be better, to make the entire industry better and get people out enjoying the water.”

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.

Quality Boats of Clearwater, Fla. was named as the 2020 Dealer of the Year.

"After winning Dealer of the Year honors last year, Quality Boats certainly did not rest on any laurels in 2019," Boating Industry content director David Gee said.

In 2019, the company maintained yet another year of double-digit revenue percentage growth — as it has for 16 of the last 25 years. The year for Quality Boats also featured a complete remodel of its marina office space and its main sales location. On top of remodels and consistent growth in sales and service, the company also maintained CSI scores averaging 95% and above.

With this second win of Dealer of the Year, Quality Boats will move into the Boating Industry Top 100 Hall of Fame.

HALL OF FAME HONORED

All members of the Top 100 Hall of Fame were honored at the Top 100 Gala, including Galati Yacht Sales, Gordy’s Lakefront Marine, MarineMax, Prince William Marine Sales and OneWater Marine.

THE BOATING INDUSTRY 2020 TOP 100

  1. Will the Best In Class Honors list be named later, or with this year being different will Boating Industry be holding off on this list?

    • Hi Joey,

      Our hope and plan is to hold a special one-day event in the Spring, so that we can get together in person. It is at this event that we will announce the 2020 Best in Class awards and continue celebrating the 2020 Top 100.

      Thank you,
      Adam Quandt, Boating Industry Top 100 Program Director
