|(Longboat Key, FL) Cannons does it again! For the 15th year in a row, Cannons Marina earns the most esteemed award that is available to Grady-White Boat dealers – the Admiral’s Circle Award. The Admiral’s Circle award is considered one of the most coveted in the boating industry, only giving to the most elite boat dealers who provide outstanding customer service and a high achievement in sales. Receiving the award at all is a distinguished honor, but it is almost unheard of for a dealer to receive it for 15 straight years.
Admiral’s Circle membership is exclusively for those top-notch dealerships in the Grady-White network that have achieved highest levels in retail sales for the model year, plus also have earned Grady-White’s Service Excellence award with customer satisfaction index scores exceeding 9.25 on a 10-point scale as rated in actual customer surveys.
David Miller, co-owner of Cannons Marina, is so pleased that his marina has received such a remarkable amount of Admiral’s Circle awards. “Wow, fifteen years! I’m so proud. We strive to do a good job and it’s nice when a fantastic company like Grady-White confirms that you are doing a good job.” David also is very adamant about making sure that he and his staff provide customers with the best service possible. “We care about our customers and we basically want to make sure that they have a good and safe day out on the boat,” explains David. “The way we do that,” continues David, “is by providing them with the best boats available, like Grady-White, and by making sure we offer impeccable customer service. That’s the winning formula!”
Lucy Miller, co-owner of Cannons Marina, adds, “We take our service very seriously. Why do we do it? It’s simple. We care.” Cannons Marina has providing the Tampa Bay area with uninterrupted, unparalleled customer service for 59 years.
