Southport Boats Announces 2017 Dealer of the Year

Southport Boats this week announced the recipient of their Dealer of the Year Award. The 2017 award went to Crosby Yacht Yard, Inc. (Crosby Yacht) of Osterville, Massachusetts. This is the first time Crosby Yacht has received the award from Southport.

After joining the Southport Dealer Network in 2013, Gregory Egan and Crosby Yacht experienced steady year-over-year gains in annual sales, and had a truly break-out year in 2017 when they doubled their units from 2016. Along with co-dealer Smith Yacht Sales of Hingham, Massachusetts, Crosby Yacht accounted for over 25% of the Southport annual production run.

“We had a feeling that Greg and Eric were on the cusp of really doing something great; 2016 was a stellar year for their group, but we knew there was even more coming for 2017” said Jonathan Kirby, Marketing and Sales Director for Southport. “Their passion for the Southport brand and a consistently high-quality customer service approach earned them many happy customers who were more than happy to sing the praises of Crosby Yacht Yard, Smith Yacht Sales, and Southport.”

Gregory Egan, Vice President and GM of Crosby Yacht Yard commented: “Eric [Smith] and I really appreciate the engineering, quality and design aspects of Southport Boats and have been extremely pleased with our relationship with the Southport Boats team in Maine. We all feel enormous pride in being able to offer the Southport Experience to our customers. With the solid reputation for incredible performance and quality, Southport continues to grow in our market and we look forward to another successful year.”

Crosby Yacht and Smith Yacht Sales will look to continue their success in 2018, starting with the New England Boat Show in Boston, February 10th through 18th.
