Recognized as one of the top boat dealers in North America and North Carolina

Manteo Marine was recently named one of the Top 100 Dealers in North America by Boating Industry, the leading trade publication for the marine industry.  Entering the 18th year of the Top 100 in 2022, the program now honors the best of the best across the entire boating industry.

“This year’s Top Dealers program brought on a stack of new applicants and new competition to the program along with very strong returns from multi-year winners. And we’re very excited to highlight the accomplishments of all, as new dealers join the ranks and others join forces to become one,” Boating Industry editor-in-chief and Top 100 program director Adam Quandt said.

Manteo Marine is one of only three dealers to receive this award in the state of North Carolina.

“Being recognized as one of the Top 100 boat dealers in North America, and only one of three in North Carolina, is a testament to our staff and their continued commitment to our customers. This award is a result of our business being focused on customer satisfaction and family fun. We pride ourselves on building partnerships with the very best boat dealers in the industry,” notes Hunter Smithwick.

“Year after year we continue to spend time and money to improve our team, our business practices, and the way we deliver the boating experience to our customers.  We’ve been in business for over 70 years but believe there are always new ways to improve our business and provide a better experience to our customers,” added Smithwick.

The Top 100 is the only independent ranking of boat dealers in North America. The list recognizes dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics, customer service and more. The Boating Industry Top 100 has recognized the top dealers in North America every year since 2005.
