Now that 2017 is behind us and we're just getting into 2018, I wanted to thank everyone for their business in 2017. We had a great year. Our trailer shop and boat shop was very busy this year. We had a change over in our motor shop and the new guys are working out great. Stop in and say hi to William and John.
Also new last year for Outer Banks Boat Harbor was becoming a Yamaha loose motor dealer. What that means is we can now buy individual motors directly from Yamaha. We had a very successful year as a new loose motor dealer. We sold over 25 units. Yamaha was ecstatic that we experienced over 400% growth in sales last year. They've never had a dealer see that kind of growth in one year. Thanks again for your business.
Yamaha is continually coming out with upgraded motors. We just got in a newly designed 25 that is turning out to be a phenomenal motor. If you are in the market for a small to midsize motor, you really need to look into this 25.
2018 we're looking to continue to grow our lose motor sales, decrease our turnaround in the shops and strive to keep you all very happy.
Thanks again for a successful 2017 and looking forward to a great 2018.
