Galati Yacht Sales has been a founding member of the MRAA certification program since its inception in 2005 and has been certified ever since.

    About the Marine Industry Certified Dealer Program

    In 2005, as part of the Grow Boating program, the MRAA and the NMAA created a program endorsing all elements of exceptional customer support in an effort to deliver a better boating experience to consumers and provide marine dealerships the tools to improve performance standards. Galati Yacht Sales quickly became part of the program by way of Carmine Galati’s efforts to assist in creating the outline for today’s program, which is going on 18 years strong.

    The Marine Industry Certified Dealer program supports dealers and sets them on a path to success by implementing sustainable principles that lead to unmatched retail experiences for customers and a thriving marine business. The fundamental focus areas are operations, facilities, professional sales/service process, customer satisfaction, and employee training satisfaction. The blueprint provided by the Marine Industry Certified Dealer program allows companies to evolve and flourish due to continuous focus on maintaining systems and processes, tracking customer and employee satisfaction, integrating trending best practices, and ensuring a dealership lives up to all performance-enhancing prerequisites.

    It’s important to note that the Marine Industry Certified Dealer Program is a voluntary process in which a company must meet independently verified high standards. This tried and true program distinguishes those dealerships that aspire to be the best and those committed to becoming the best.


    Marine Industry Consumer Commitment

    Part of being certified also means marine dealers promise to abide by a Marine Industry Consumer Commitment, ensuring fair and equal treatment for every customer. With so many first-time boaters joining the boating community every year and an industry footprint of over $42 billion, it is paramount to have a program in place to ensure marine dealerships are providing customers with an exceptional experience. The commitment states:

Established jointly by the Marine Retailers Association of Americas and the National Marine Manufacturers Association, these principles are established to ensure you an enjoyable boating experience.
