Jeff Husby has been passionate about boating since an early age. He aspired to be the best in his industry while climbing through the ranks and living the boating lifestyle. “Nothing better than a day on the water with Family and Friends,” says Husby.
His drive and passion began with Southeast Correct Craft in 1993. For 6 straight years he personally earned the #1 global award for top retail sales for Correct Craft. In 2008, he founded his own dealership—Regal & Nautique of Orlando—and has propelled it into a world class organization currently ranked in the #3 position of the Boating Industry Top 100 in North America. Other major industry accolades under Husby’s leadership include 9x Top 100 Dealer ranking including designation in 2018 and 2020 as the Nation’s best in class service department; 2019 and 2020 MRAA Top 10 Best Dealerships to Work For; 10 consecutive years as a Top 10 Nautique Dealer and winner of the 2019 Nautique President’s Award; Top 10 Regal Dealer with previous #1 ranking for single store sales; along with multiple Industry CSI award recognitions.
In August of 2020 Husby expanded his footprint and became partner, President and CEO of WaterSports Central LLC, a boat dealership with 6 retail locations across Georgia and South Carolina. Husby remains at the helm of Regal & Nautique of Orlando as owner and GM. This new dual role provides ample opportunity to maximize the strengths and shared resources between both companies in a continued and focused effort to elevate the customer experience.
Husby is excited for the future and always looking for future opportunities!
