Breath's Boats in the Bay among Top 100 dealers

For the fourth consecutive year, Breath's Boats & Motors of Bay St. Louis has been named one of the Top 100 dealers in North America by Boating Industry, a leading trade publication for the marine industry.

Since 2005, the Top 100 annual list has honored dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics and customer service.

John Ladner, president of Breath's Boats, said his crew is proud to be among the elite dealers of North America.

"There are thousands of boat dealers in the United States and Canada, and only the truly elite make the Top 100," said Boating Industry editor-in-chief Jonathan Sweet. "These dealers are the best in the industry, not only excelling at selling boats, but also at promoting the boating lifestyle."

"The 2015 Top 100 and Hall of Fame topped $2.5 billion in total sales -- the highest total for the Top 100 since 2008," Sweet said. "They sold more boats, grew profits, increased service efficiency and improved CSI scores."
