Craig Brosenne knew a winner when he saw one. Constantly on the prowl for new ideas, the general manager of Hagadone Marine was looking for a new boat line to add to the dealership for 2010 to compliment other brands. “No question about it,” Brosenne said. “This one caught our eye and kept it.”
The reason: Regal Boats had just won the first-place J.D. Power and Associates award for “Highest in Customer Satisfaction” for the third year in a row.
“We’re always looking for award-winning brands to align with the respected Hagadone Marine name,” Brosenne said. “Our clients expect it, and we must deliver.”
As part of the bargain, Brosenne extracted the right for Yacht Club Sales and Service to be the Inland Northwest´s exclusive Regal dealer, as well as a promise of more than $1 million in inventory for his customers to choose from.
“We like these boats because we think they’re building the highest quality sport cruisers in their category,” he said. “We believe they’re a perfect fit for the marinas on Lake Coeur d’Alene. They’re an affordable way to have lake property and a boat, too.”
He also chose the Regal Boats line based on the new joystick docking system that gives newcomers the ability to dock safely and easily. The boats are equipped for camping, cruising or watersports.
“We were impressed as could be,” Brosenne said. “We can´t wait to unveil five new sports cruisers, including the largest boat at the Spokane Boat Show, on January 30.”
