Desmasdon's Boatworks

Jan 12, 2021

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas named Desmasdon’s Boatworks, of Pointe au Baril, Ontario, one of the marine industry’s Great Dealerships to Work For, online at Dealer Week, the association’s annual conference and expo.
“We are incredibly honoured to be awarded with the Great Dealership to Work for award, and to be named #2 out of 8 very qualified marinas is an amazing accomplishment that we don’t take lightly. We are very proud of our team,  although 2020 has not been an easy year for anyone, our team members showed up everyday and performed their best work which is all we can ask for. Our team make up who we are, every award we win is because of our incredible group. We are just thankful to have a great team  and our amazing customers that make it possible to win these types of awards.” says Nicole French
Eight dealerships qualified for recognition by earning an overall score of 90 percent or better on the Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program’s annual Employee Satisfaction Survey. This survey, administered anonymously through the MRAA, asks Certified Dealership employees to answer 32 ranking questions about their satisfaction with their unique dealership’s leadership, management, reputation, customer relations and employee satisfaction.
“Becoming a Great Dealership to Work for is not an easy feat, especially in a year like 2020, when dealership employees were asked to work longer and harder than ever to keep up with the increased demand the marine industry faced,” says Liz Keener, MRAA Certification Manager. “These dealerships invest in the satisfaction of their employees, and they take pride in fostering an environment that their employees love to work in each and every day.”

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
