 Cobalt Dealers recognized at Top 100 Awards

  Each year, Boating Industry magazine publishes a list entitled “Top 100 Dealers in North America.” The list identifies those dealers who have most fully and consistently achieved these four objectives: 1) a consistent and clear understanding that the profitability of the organization is directly related to customer satisfaction, 2) a customer experience worth returning for and recommending to others, 3) preparation for future success with thorough sound planning and strong initiatives in marketing and training, and 4) best practices which ensure an exceptional boating lifestyle for every customer.

This focus on quality certainly had much to do with the inclusion of so many long-time Cobalt dealers in the annual Top 100 list awarded this year in Orlando. In fact, more Cobalt dealers were ranked in the Top 100 than those representing any other independent boat manufacturer – recognition of our dealers’ savvy business operations, and their demonstrated commitment to customer care.

“We appreciate the effort and commitment that it takes to be recognized as a Top 100 dealer, and we salute those dealerships that take the time and effort to participate,” said Cobalt Vice President Gavan Hunt. “Cobalt and our dealer partners focus on total customer satisfaction as the cornerstones of success. We have 21 dealerships that were rewarded for this commitment by Boating Industry”

The Top 100 program asks winning dealers to share their best practices with the industry, ready for adoption by other dealers, thereby raising the bar of professionalism for marine professionals from Toronto to Texas.

Congratulations to these outstanding Cobalt partners.
