Raymarine has awarded Budget Marine the title of 2014 International Dealer of the Year. Rodrigo Santos, the Raymarine Sales Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean handed the award over to our electronics guru Derek Hodge of Budget Marine during the Raymarine International Dealer Conference in Ft.Lauderdale on the 28th of October.
Raymarine develops and manufactures the most comprehensive range of electronic equipment for the recreational boating and light commercial marine markets. Receiving an award like this from a global company with such a big network of dealers shows the commitment and trust Budget Marine has in this brand and vice versa.
Our 12 locations do a great job having a wide variety of Raymarine equipment in their stores. We also work closely with Raymarine approved marine technicians ensuring that the customer will not only receive professional advice but also a top notch installation.
When the award reached our Budget Marine headquarters in St.Maarten we wanted to not only put the spotlight on our electronics team in St.Maarten: Laurence Wolff (left), Derek Hodge (middle) and Errol Haynes (right) but also Gui (second from left), the owner of Atlantis Marine and Andy (second from right), one of his technicians. Atlantis Marine provides service and support for Raymarine products in St.Maarten. They are Raymarine factory certified for installations, repairs and warranties. Budget Marine recognizes the importance of these partnerships and therefor want to also share this award with the Raymarine approved marine technicians in all our locations that help us give the customer a complete service.
