The Boat Warehouse remains strong multi-branded dealer for 2017


September 18, 2017 – The 2018 model year was led by a great evening of reminiscence during the annual 2018 Dealer Meeting held in beautiful Bay Harbor, Michigan. Throughout the evening, awards were presented to the top dealerships and their representatives from around the world.

It was a night to remember for The Boat Warehouse after receiving multiple awards ranging across multiple brands. Four Winns was excited to present The Boat Warehouse with the prestigious Large Cambridge Lighthouse award for the largest volume for a multiple store dealership. In addition, The Boat Warehouse also was named the largest combined volume dealer for 2017, receiving the coveted Magnum Opus award from the Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab, and the Wellcraft boat brands.

“We want to congratulate The Boat Warehouse on all fronts as they have continued to demonstrate their strength as our brands’ partner. Their commitment to service and sales has proven that their efforts are very deserving of these awards; and this continuous dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed,” stated Andy Lindsay, V.P. Sales Americas.

Dave Mayhew, President at The Boat Warehouse, accepted the award, “The Boat Warehouse and the Groupe Beneteau brands continues to be a successful partnership for our business. We’re excited about the future with Groupe Beneteau and always look forward to their new and innovative product introductions. ”

The Boat Warehouse serves all of the greater Toronto, Ottawa, Barrie and Peterborough areas with three locations featuring a state-of-the-art showroom, parts and service center and finance department.

The Boat Warehouse has three locations: Kingston, Ontario, (The Boat Warehouse Georgian Bay) Coldwater, ON and (D.T. Powersports) Uxbridge, ON. The dealership represents Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab, and the Wellcraft boat brands.

Throughout the entirety of the Groupe Beneteau Dealer Meeting, September 10-12, 2017, over 280 representatives from 133 dealerships were in attendance along with representatives from Four Winns, Scarab, Glastron, and Wellcraft from around the world.

In addition, every brand would like to thank each dealership in attendance from around the world for being a part of our dealer network, along with providing valuable input on new product development and sales for the company.
