JD Power Award
Boats was honored with the J.D. Power and Associates award for "Highest
in Customer Satisfaction with Pontoon Boats" at the Miami International Boat Show yesterday.
"Receiving this award is a public declaration of what Manitou has believed all along, quality boats and superior service translate into satisfied customers. I believe our cutting edge product offering, lifelong employee base, loyal service oriented dealers and numerous satisfied customers are what have made receiving this award possible" said Scott VanWagenen, president of Manitou Pontoon Boats.
J.D. Power and Associates measures customer satisfaction and product performance in six factors for the pontoon segment: engine; ride/handling; helm/instrument panel; design/styling; sound system; and fishing. In all, J.D. Power and Associates surveys thousands of consumers to determine the level of satisfaction for the annual award.
Scott Wagoner, Vice President of Sales, Manitou Pontoon Boats said, "We are very excited that this is the second time in the past three years that Manitou has received this prestigious award. At Manitou our focus has always been to build a quality pontoon boat with a most recent emphasis on performance handling pontoons equipped with V-Toon Technology TM. We take great pride in receiving the J.D. Power and Associates award and thanks goes to all of our dealers and employees for their hard earned efforts."
