I am one of the stars in the new Island Cove Marina commercial! On Thursday I got to drive one of our new Tracker boats (a Q5 Tahoe sport boat). Five of our Tracker boats were featured in the footage. The new commercial is being made and should be available sometime in the next month.
I have the most amazing job in the world. I get to go to work, see the lake every day, and drive boats! There's nothing better than walking out of my office and seeing beautiful boats. I have encountered some of the nicest, most interesting people through the marina. I have met people traveling the Great Loop. Cruising the Great Loop consists of circling North America by water anywhere from 5,000 to 7,500 miles, depending upon the route. I've met people from other countries who have stopped by the marina. We have sold boats to people in Indonesia and showed our Tracker line to people from Australia.
I am part of an organization that is currently number nine in the world in Tracker boats sales. Yes, that's right! Island Cove Outdoor Center is the ninth top Tracker dealer in the world! When the owners purchased the Tracker dealership in 2005, my dad became general manager and I became the office manager at both of our locations. With the help of an excellent sales manager and sales team, in four short years we transformed the business into a power selling dealership. It has been hard work, but Island Cove is based on quality Tracker products and Mercury certified service. With that combination, we have been highly successful. I am hopeful that Island Cove will move up to the top five in the next couple of years!
