Beneteau and its network of dealers are enrolled in the National Marine Manufacturers Association CSI (Customer Satisfaction Index) program. The program was established to support the industry's goal of raising the bar on customer satisfaction.
Each year the NMMA awards participating manufacturers that actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to better serve the customer. Award recipients achieve and maintaine an independently-measured standard of excellence of 90 percent or higher in customer satisfaction over the past year and participating manufacturers are required to survey all new boat buyers during this period. For the last 5 consecutive years Beneteau has received this recognition.
“Consistently surveying our customers to measure their satisfaction levels has been a strategic commitment of ours for years. The objective of participating in the NMMA program has always been to use this valuable information to drive ourselves towards ever higher levels of quality while exceeding the expectations of the owners of the beautiful floating dreams our Beneteau team in Marion creates.” said Wayne Burdick, President. "It is a wonderful confirmation that for several years in a row Beneteau and our great dealer network are the ONLY sailboat company and dealer body that are recognized by NMMA to deliver exceptional quality of product and service.”
