We recently announced the top ten Monterey CSI (Customer Service Index) dealers for 2014! In honor of these dealers’ dedication to custom service and the Monterey lifestyle, we’re taking a look at the sites, locations and attractions that make these dealers who they are.
1. Yankee Boating Center
With five locations around the state of New York, the folks at Yankee Boating Center are no stranger to great spots like Lake George, Finger Lakes and the Thousand Islands region. Yankee Boating topped out as the best in customer service and overall performance this year.
2. C-Jam Yacht Sales
When you think Atlantic City, boating might not be the first thing to come to mind… but with C-Jam Yacht Sales locations nearby, you might have to reconsider. C-Jam’s focus on customer satisfaction (and proximity to prime Atlantic boating) make it a staple of New Jersey boating.
3. Bassett Yacht & Boat Sales LLC
This Springfield, Massachusetts dealer is located by the picturesque Connecticut River and is a quick drive away from popular boating destinations like Cape Cod and Newport.
