Atwood Lake Boats, a locally owned and operated pontoon dealership, recently placed 15th in the Top 100 North American Marine Dealer annual awards at the Boating Industry Magazine’s Elevate Summit in Orlando, Florida.

Atwood Lake Boats surpassed thousands of boat dealerships, boat services and marinas in the U.S. and Canada to win the award. Since 2009 the dealership has continuously met the standards and expectations to achieve a top-100 dealership status.

According to, the Top Dealers portion of the Top 100 Awards is the only independent ranking of boat dealers in North America. Dealerships are judged based on business operations, professionalism, marketing tactics, customer service and more.
