Hobart marine dealer Lewis Marine has received the Quintrex Dealer of the Year 2009 award, but dealership principal and prominent Hobart boating identity Hughie Lewis said it came as a complete surprise.

"With the opening of our massive new showroom we have been absorbed by the day-to-day tasks of getting the showroom up and running while concurrently attending to the needs of our customers," said Lewis.

"We have certainly had a great year with Quintrex and we carry a lot of Quintrex aluminium boats in stock. This award has crept up on us and has come as a very pleasant surprise."

According to Jason Boal, Quintrex’s sales and marketing manager, Lewis Marine has excelled during an especially tough time for marine dealers.

"From Quintrex’s perspective we have noticed that Lewis Marine has done a lot right over 2009," said Boal.

"Lewis Marine has consistently presented the Quintrex product to the highest standard. The Lewis Marine premises are first rate and the team at Lewis Marine has demonstrated excellent customer service," he said.

"As Hobart does not have an annual boat show like the mainland capital cities, Lewis Marine takes pride in presenting their own in-house boat show. This is a well organised event, promoting not only the Quintrex brand, but pleasure boating in general."

The Quintrex Dealer of the Year 2009 award is not automatically awarded to the dealer who sells the most boats, although Quintrex said it nonetheless recognised the big increase in the number of Quintrex boats stocked and sold by Lewis Marine.

"There are any number of mainland Quintrex dealers who sell more Quintrex boats than we do, but on a per capita basis I reckon we do a pretty good job in Tasmania," added Lewis.
Lewis Marine is Tasmania’s largest marine dealer. The dealership was established in 1983 and has one of the biggest undercover boat showrooms in Australia. Lewis Marine is an authorised agent for Quintrex aluminium boats, CruiseCraft, Whittley, Clearwater, Silver Marine inflatables, Wave Runner PWCs and Yamaha outboards.

Quintrex said its aluminium boats are Australia’s largest selling brand of boat.
