ACHIEVEMENTS & AWARDS...Harborside was one of the first 100 dealers in the United States to meet the stringent criteria and earn the distinction of becoming a Marine Certified Dealer (Certification Congratulations Letter), in 2006. We have been re-certified every year since. Harborside was awarded four best practices out of six categories. This means we fulfilled and exceeded the requirements with practices that went far beyond the sales or service standard, that is set by the certification board. We have also been awarded the top CSI (Customer Satisfaction Index) Award from Chris Craft for four straight years. We continue to raise the bar on the marine industry by offering programs, training, events, and "out of box" thinking that sets us apart from our competition.
For the last several years Harborside Marina and Yacht Sales has been named one of the Top 100 Dealers in North America, by Boating Industry Magazine. Harborside takes great pride in this award, because it is tangible evidence of the exceptional sales and service we provide to our clients each and every day.
PRODUCT LINES AND DEALERSHIPS...Harborside offers a niche in the overly crowded marine retail industry. Many boats fit into a class where there is no distinction between brands and models. This "sea of sameness" allows Harborisde to differentiate itself by the products we sell and the service we provide. We only sell high-end boats with unique characteristics and exceptional quality. Our service approach is the foundation of our success.
Chris Craft offers runabouts and Yachts in a classical retro line ranging from 20' to 42'. Chris Craft is the oldest US manufacturer, offering heritage, design and quality.
We have also partnered with Bennington Marine, the leader in luxury Pontoon Boats in the world, and created a product that can offer the coastline boater the perfect solution for their boating needs. Imagine sitting in the comfort of your living room at the same time you are enjoying the beautiful waters of Long Island Sound while riding on a pillow. The Bennington Sound Edition by Harborside! These boats will be provisioned for ride & performance, protection and comfort AND DURABILITY. This, coupled with our award wining service allows us to offer our customers a product incomparable to any other. Whether you are getting out on the water for the first time, are a seasoned boater or want something that your current boat does not offer, we have found the solution
