FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 8, 2020) — For the second year in a row, Southwest Florida-based Fish Tale Boats recently was named the top dealer for Robalo boats, beating out 222 dealers worldwide.
“Fish Tale is a world-class Robalo dealership always delivering a great experience to our mutual customers,” says Robalo Founder Buck Pegg. “We have enjoyed our relationship with Fish Tale for decades.”
The Fricke family has owned and operated Fish Tale Boats in Southwest Florida for more than 20 years. The company sells and services boats on-site and from its locations at 15581 S. Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers, 2540 Davis Blvd. in Naples, and Bonita Bay Marina in Bonita Springs.
Founded in 1969, Robalo is a premium-quality line of outboard-powered bay boats, center console, dual console and walkaround cabin-style sport fishing boats. Robalo boats, part of publicly-traded Marine Products Corp., are among the most popular boats of their class internationally. Robalo is the second-largest manufacturer of outboard boats in lengths from 16 to 31 feet in the U.S. with a market share of 5.3%.
“The Fricke family and General Manager Ray Jahn have represented our brands while expanding their operations to serve customers in Fort Myers and Naples, Fla.,” adds Pegg. “The entire Robalo team would like to congratulate Fish Tale on their success as our No. 1 Robalo dealer while always pursuing excellence in all they do.”
Fish Tale reported its sales of Robalo boats rose nearly 9% for the year ending in the first quarter. “We smashed the sales record thanks to our clients and our team of dedicated service professionals,” says Travis Fricke, vice president of operations for Fish Tale. “The key to our success is the after-sale service to help Robalo owners maintain their boats at peak performance.”
Southwest Florida is a boater’s paradise and Robalo’s boats are especially well-suited to these local waters. In particular, Fricke says excitement is building for sales of the new Robalo R360, which Fish Tale will have on display at the Fort Myers Boat Show Nov. 12-15.
