M&P Mercury Takes Top Dealer Honours, Opens Nanaimo Location

West Coast powerboat dealer M&P Mercury Sales has been honoured as Canada’s #1 boat dealer in Boating Industry Magazine’s Top 100 Dealers Awards. M&P also ranked as #4 dealer in North America.

The Top 100 aims to help consumers choose the right dealership for their boat purchase. More than 3,000 applications are distributed to dealers throughout North America; awards are based on in-depth research on each company, including overall business operations, customer service and professionalism.

M&P is West Coast dealer for six Brunswick Boat lines: Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Hatteras, Meridian, Trophy and Bayliner.

M&P also opens its first Vancouver Island this month at the Anchorage Marina Building, 1520 Stewart Avenue, Nanaimo. Managed by Dave Boxrud, the store will showcase Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Bayliner and Trophy boats.

“Vancouver Island has always been a very important market to M&P Mercury,” said president Bob Pappajohn. “We’re excited by the opportunity to better represent our brands to our Island clientele in such an optimal location.”
