posted on Mar 06

Yacht Club Sales and Service on Lake Coeur d’Alene has just been announced as one of the top 100 boat dealers in America by Boating Industry magazine.

This is the third year in a row that the dealership, as part of Hagadone Marine Group, has received the prestigious award, which is based on “dependable dealers that exceed sales and service expectations,” according to the magazine.

“The Top 100 award recognizes those marine dealers that are unsurpassed in overall business operations, customer service, marketing and professionalism,” said Matt Gruhn, editor-in-chief of Boating Industry magazine.

More than 350 people joined Boating Industry to honor the Top 100 Dealers at a black-tie celebration Nov. 18 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando. The Coeur d’Alene-based Hagadone Marine Group, ranked in 40th place, stood proudly side-by-side with some of the largest yachting operations in the nation.

“Once again, Yacht Club Sales and Service joins a high-ranking list of major marine players,” said Craig Brosenne, general manager of Hagadone Marine Group. “This award is a tribute to our hard-working employees, and to our loyal customers. Thank you for the recognition.”

Hagadone Marine Group represents Yacht Club Sales and Service, as well as Silver Beach Marina, the Boardwalk Marina, The Resort Boat Shop and Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises.

Boating Industry magazine, an 81-year-old business-to-business publication owned by Affinity Media, a subsidiary of Ventura, Calif.-based Affinity Group Inc. Boating Industry’s editorial team reviewed 243 applications, culled from more than 3,000 nominations.
