On their recent trip to the annual Hanse Dealer Meeting in Greifswald in July, Peter Hrones and his travelling partners Allan Bridge and Bob Vinks from Windcraft, found themselves in the lime light as it was announced that Windcraft was awarded the World Dealer of the Year for 2009.
The owner of Hanse Yachts Germany, Mr Michael Schmidt, handed the award to Peter, stating that this overall prize was given to his Australian Dealer for their good turnover with good pre-ordered inventory, marketing and innovation feedback and in particular the Hanse owners Club, which offers a special new yacht service centre.
The award came as a complete surprise to Peter Hrones when it was announced. Windcraft had been awarded this honour twice previously. Over 180 Hanse dealers from around the world were present at this years' awards.
