One of New Zealand’s leading marine dealers for more than 30 years, Gulfland Marine says they had an outstanding overall performance in 2019 to once again put it ahead of the best dealerships across the country.

"In sport, they say it’s tougher to retain a championship than win it, and I think it’s exactly the same in business," says Will Sangster, Mercury general manager—Asia Pacific.

"So Craig Lewis and his team deserve every credit backing up their 2018 win with another national title in 2019.

"Last year was another outstanding year for Gulfland Marine, which simply leads the way in customer service, business results and the way they support Mercury products across the board."

Mandurah Outboards was named Australian Dealer of the Year.

Mercury’s annual dealership awards are based on a range of objective criteria, including year-on-year growth across all product categories (Outboard, MerCruiser, P&A), business diversity, service status, and market share growth within their dealer district.

The awards also involve regional and specialist categories.

"Competition for the 2019 awards was particularly tight, and everyone collecting an award should be justifiably proud of the great work they are doing," Will says.
