2021 Top 100 Dealers AwardBoating Industry announced its 2021 Top 100 dealers during a black-tie gala in November on the final evening of the ELEVATE Summit in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Moving into the 17th year of the Top 100, we’ve definitely seen plenty of things change over the years. New dealers join the ranks every year, as other dealers join forces to become one,” said Top 100 program director Adam Quandt. “Yet from single-location family-owned dealerships to multi-store organizations, one thing remains the same each and every year, and that is the dealers on the Top 100 list continue to set the pace in sales, customer service and success overall.”

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.


All members of the Top 100 Hall of Fame were honored at the Top 100 Gala, including Galati Yacht Sales, Gordy’s Lakefront Marine, MarineMax, Prince William Marine Sales and OneWater Marine.

Boating Industry also inducted its newest member of the Top 100 Hall of Fame, Quality Boats during the celebration.

Boating Industry also recognized seven other companies with special “Best in Class” awards, for companies that particularly excelled in one area of their business.

• Best Industry Advocate — Silver Spray Sports, Fenton, Mich.
• Best Digital Strategy — Clemons Boats, Sandusky, Ohio
• Best Training — Mark's Marine, Hayden, Idaho
• Best Marketing — Nautical Ventures, Dania Beach, Fla.
• Best Customer Service — Breath's Boats & Motors, Bay St. Louis, Miss.
• Best New Idea — Shipyard Marine, Green Bay, Wis.
• Best Service Department — The Boat Shop, Tafton, Penn.


As in past years, the Top 20 members of the Top 100 were ranked, with the remaining 80 being recognized as Top 100 dealers.

Questus Radar Mount

Questus Marine patented, Self-Leveling Radar Mounts automatically keep radar antennas level with the horizon, eliminating target loss.

Regardless of the angle of heel, with a Questus mount, a radar antenna will pick up targets to either side of a vessel, rather than aiming to the sky and water (for planes and fish). The Questus Marine Self-Leveling Radar Mount can be installed in three basic configurations: backstay mount, mast mount or Stern Pole mount.
