Bayliner announced it has signed a total of 51 new dealerships since mid-2009, three of them in Canada.
“We have a tremendous dealer network,” said Bayliner President, Jeff Behan. “In November our dealer network strength was illustrated when 25 of Boating Industry's Top 100 dealers in North America were Bayliner dealers â€¦ we're looking to our new dealers to help Bayliner extend that lead in 2011.”
New Canadian Bayliner dealers include Groupe Thomas Marine, Varennes QC, M&P Mercury Sales, Vancouver BC, and Quinn's Marine, Pefferlaw ON.
Vice President of Global Sales, Pat Blake, cited the company's recent recognition by the National Marine Manufacturer's Association for superior customer satisfaction in three product categories as testament to the importance of having the right dealer/manufacturer partnerships. “This is the third year in a row that we've achieved recognition for customer satisfaction in deck boats, sterndrive bowrider boats, and sterndrive cuddy and express boats,” said Blake. “That's a reflection not only of the product, but also of the overall experience the dealer provides day-after-day. At Bayliner, we take pride in being that rare combination of affordability and superior customer service and satisfaction.”
