Top 100 Dealers

Join us back here on November, 17th at 6pm CST for the live Boating Industry Top 100 Dealers Presentation

Boating Industry announced its 2019 Top 100 dealers at a black tie gala on Nov. 24 in Orlando.

“From the thousands of dealers in North America — and hundreds of nominations — these 100 dealers are the best of the best,” said Top 100 Program Director Jonathan Sweet. “This is the 15th year of recognizing the Top 100 and the dealers on the list just keep getting better, topping $3.5 billion in total revenue in 2018.”

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 2019 Dealer of the Year.

"The 45-year-old company has been a top-ranked member of the Top 100 for years," Boating Industry content director David Gee said.

In 2018, the company was especially impressive, growing total revenue by 33.17%. Quality Boats improved its facilities, strengthened its operations and invested in its marketing.

The company combines the best of a large operation with the customer service of a family business. That means taking care of its customers and employees, focusing on its tagline, “The difference is quality, the foundation is family.”


All members of the Top 100 Hall of Fame were honored at the Top 100 Gala, including Galati Yacht Sales, Gordy’s Lakefront Marine, Legendary Marine, MarineMax, Prince William Marine Sales, OneWater Marine Holdings and new inductee, Sail & Ski Center .
