A new boat is an investment that will bring you and your family years of fun. Be sure to buy it from a dealership that has invested in making sure you will enjoy every one of those years. Choose a Marine Industry Certified Dealership.
The Marine Industry Certified Dealership program is a voluntary process. Dealerships that earn Marine Industry Certification have made a commitment to your complete satisfaction. They also pledge to post and abide by a Marine Industry Consumer Commitment that ensures fair and equal treatment for every single customer. Five Star Marine Industry Certified Dealers must demonstrate to a third party reviewer at the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA) that they meet or exceed program standards in key areas, including customer experience, employee engagement, facilities and business practices. They must commit to follow up with 100 percent of their customers. And to confirm their dedication, they enroll in an annual education program to keep on top of the latest trends in the business.
Your Certified Dealership will help you choose the right boat for your lifestyle and your needs, maintain your boat and provide service when it’s needed. To find a participating dealership, look for the Marine Industry Certified Dealership logo.
