The La Collette-based firm, which was competing against over 40 UK dealerships, was judged on its marketing, training, parts and engine sales and customer service.
The business set up Johnathon Pereira took on the Volvo Penta dealership in 2015, less than a year after the firm was established.
Volvo Penta is used by 80% of yachts and powerboats in
the Island and the Swedish firm holds a similar proportion of the global market for engines.
Mr Pereira said: ‘This is a very positive step for a young company and an absolute achievement for the team. People in the Channel Islands take great pride in maintaining their boats to the highest standards, which fits perfectly with our ethos. Reaching this position in the awards is testimony to the high standards we offer our customers.’
The managing director added: ‘We would like to thank our team for all their hard work and also our loyal customers and fellow traders for their continued support.’
As well as Volvo Penta, the marine engineering business is the authorised dealer for Caterpillar and Tohatsu engines and Smartliner boats. The company also offers a full boat maintenance service
at its location in La Collette harbour and co-ordinates
boat hoisting, cleaning, polishing and electronics with
a well-stocked marine chandlery.
The firm has also been appointed recently as MAN marine dealer for the Channel Islands, providing a dedicated factory-trained team to sell and service the modern engines, which range from 440 hp to 1,900 hp and are suitable for both commercial vessels and pleasure craft.
