Boat Warehouse Award


Oct 22, 2016

At the Beneteau Group dealer meeting in Sarasota, Florida, September 18 to 21, their Four Winns, Glastron and Wellcraft brands gave The Boat Warehouse the Admiral Award for the largest volume for a multiple-store dealership in Canada. In fact, The Boat Warehouse received multiple awards for their achievements with Four Winns, Glastron and Wellcraft, including the Regional Award from Four Winns. 


We spoke to The Boat Warehouse owner, Dave Mayhew who acknowledged that they had a great year in 2016, at least partly because of the fabulous summer weather throughout the markets he serves in Ontario.


Dave said, “The Boat Warehouse is certainly proud to be the world’s largest Glastron dealer and also the number two Four Winns dealer world-wide. We’ve enjoyed a very long and successful relationship with Four Winns and look forward to continued success with the Wellcraft brand. Our Lowe Boats models remain popular with our consumers and we were fortunate to have been awarded as Canada’s largest dealer for 2016. We are thankful to our customers and our staff for all of their hard work and support. 


The Boat Warehouse serves the greater Toronto, Ottawa, Barrie and Peterborough areas with three locations. The dealership represents Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab, Wellcraft and Jeanneau powerboats.
