Boats from hell »200603/10/20080
In 2006, i bought a brand new SeaRay 195 Sport for over £30,000 - and as i was planning on moving away from the sea within 6 months, i asked to have a 'buy-back' agreement in place. Madog Boat Sales agreed to this and promised that they would buy it back from me if i wanted them to, so long as it was within 6 months.

Sure enough, i did want to sell the boat back to them after 6 months but they broke the agreement and refused to buy it back. After legal threats, they stated that they were in financial difficulties and that they could only offer me just over £15,000 (for a boat that was worth £30k+ just 6 months prior!)

Needless to say i refused to sell it at such a ridiulous price and had to keep it. The boat had been nothing but trouble - Madog (contact Ian) falied to fix the boat once within its warranty period and when i went round there to question the management, they locked the door and would not let me in.

After taking the boat to a proper SeaRay dealer in the South of England, i found out that the boat was not brand new when i bought it and it had been fitted with the wrong prop by the previous owner which has been causing all the problems.

This company do not adhere to the warranty they give you and sell second hand boats as brand new. Steer clear.

Triton Problems »May 0711/03/20090

 


I have had several problems with a new boat, Here is the storey.


 


I have been fishing for several years and was selected to be a part of the Triton Boat Pro Staff in 2006. I ordered a boat through The Sportsmens Edge in Paducah Ky in June of 2006 I took delivery in Feb 2007. At delivery there were a few problems (noted below) then a few weeks later there were several problems. I took it back to dealer weekly for several weeks due to a faulty sensor that could not be found. Then it was in the shop 17 weeks the first 18 mths I owned the boat. I have had a problem with the steering since day one it has been worked on numerous times the last time at the Triton Factory. After the steering totally locked up a few weeks after being at Triton Factory while fishing a tournament I have had it. I tried to Trade it in at the dealer where I bought it but was offered 9,000.00 less than I paid for it 6 mths earlier (Pro Staff deal must have been a good one). Looking back that would have been cheap to get out of this nightmare. This boat has been in the shop approx 1 out of every 5 days I have owned it
