Finding someone to take your money (giving a fair value) and provide accurate information shouldn't be this difficult. Hope this works out well for you. I still have nightmares over my first new boat purchase. It's now all about an honest/honorable dealer and the associated transaction both pre & post boat delivery.

It shouldn't be that hard but it weeds out the bad dealerships from the good.

Not like it used to be

Thanks for your suggestions everyone!
Good to hear everything worked out, congrats!

If your communication is better with this dealer; you made the right choice. Just think how angry you would be if they ordered your boat wrong after a long wait to get it.



Congrats, Getting a new boat is super exciting.

Congrats on the purchase. I think you made the correct choice. I would call the other dealer and thank them for their time but you are moving in a different direction.
