Strong’s Marine was named the number seven dealer in all of North America by Boating Industry magazine at a black tie gala on November 19 in Orlando, Florida, that honored the top 100 dealers, according to the ranking.
“These dealers are truly the elite of the marine industry, recognized for their business acumen, customer service and overall excellence,” said Boating Industry Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Sweet.
“Our employees go above and beyond every day to enhance our clients’ boating lifestyle and to fulfill dreams,” said company president Jeff Strong. “This honor is a testament to the caring efforts of the Strong’s team.”
Strong’s Marine, with showroom and marina locations in Southampton, Mattituck and Port Washington, topped the list of Northeast dealers this year. It is the 10th consecutive year Strong’s Marine has ranked among the Top 100 dealers.
Strong’s Marine offers boat sales and rentals, dockage, service, and storage to all of Long Island and the New York City region.
Stewart Strong started Strong’s Marine on Long Island in 1945 with the Strong & Holland Marina in Lindenhurst. Dave and Dottie Strong established the Mattituck Marina in 1965. Today, Jeff and Re Strong have grown Strong’s Marine to include locations in Mattituck on both the Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound; in Southampton; in Port Washington at Brewer Capri Marina West; and in Delray Beach, Florida, at Marina Delray. The family tradition has continued into its fourth generation, with son Ryan Strong overseeing operations for all locations.
