Owner/GM, Regal & Nautique of Orlando

When it comes to all things boating in Central Florida, no one is more attuned than Jeff Husby, owner and GM of Regal & Nautique of Orlando.

As the region’s leading marine retailer, Husby and his award-winning crew are highly distinguished. 

The dealership made huge waves in 2022, winning the highly coveted Boating Industry Top 100 “Dealer of the Year” award as the #1 retail dealer in all of North America. This prestigious recognition is a testament to Husby’s leadership, business acumen and customer-centric focus. 

Additional accolades include being named as one of the “Top 10 Retail Dealerships to Work for in North America” by the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, while earning top CSI (customer service) sales and service scores for all the national boat brands it represents. The dealership also holds title to the “#1 Service Department in North America,” an impressive two-time win bestowed by the editors of Boating Industry Magazine.

In addition to his Orlando retail business, Husby serves as president of the Central Florida Marine Trades Association and is an appointed member of the Global Nautique Presidents Roundtable. He co-owns the Thigh High Wake + Surf Series, a fast-growing grassroots watersports competition operating in Central Florida. He is CEO of Water Sports Central, a group of five highly successful retail marine dealerships situated in GA and SC. A philanthropist, Husby is actively engaged in supporting multiple charitable organizations and giving back to the community he proudly calls home.

“Central Florida is a boater’s mecca and I’m fortunate to live and work in a community that greatly values the boating lifestyle,” said Husby. “My team and I appreciate the opportunity we have to represent the best brands in the boating business and to serve our loyal customers with excellence.” 

Husby’s next big hurrah is sure to add more excitement and luster to downtown Orlando as a brand new, world class Nautique showroom is expected to premiere in 2023, expanding the dealership’s retail footprint and workforce. 

“We are fortunate to be the trusted hometown dealer of both Nautique and Regal Boats and our new state-of-the-art facilities will provide ample opportunity to showcase the best brands in Central Florida,” he said. 

The dealership also represents Supreme towboats and South Bay pontoons, the latter a Berkshire Hathaway company. 

Congratulations to Jeff Husby, one of Central Florida’s movers and shakers and recipient of the 2022 Men & Women of the Year!
