I am amazed to here the new Contender Dealer has at least 3 happy customers. One of my favorite sayings is a good deal is a state of mind. I have a family member that paid around $275,000 for a boat from said dealer around the first of the year. It now has 20 something hrs. on it. Not by his choice. They have not completed the rigging as specified in the deal. The engines have never run properly for more than a couple of hrs. Along with other problems still un-addressesd. Spend what a Contender cost at dealer that doesn't have a service department are you stupid or what? If someone over there wants to clear thier name E-Mail me I will contact the boat owner.

Chris Crocker is one of the most straight up, easy to deal with guys I have ever spent money with. He took $10 out of his own pocket over a gasket issue I had with Yamaha and handed it to me on the spot. Not all things are about money, but I would bet that one simple gesture has repaid itself about a thousand times over. If I was in the market for a Contender, his shop would be my first and only stop. He's got some very nice boats sitting on his lot that need some slime on them and bluewater under them in a bad way.

Interesting thread. Given the latest scuttlebut about boat sales on the downswing it would be hard to say this is a good deal or bad deal. I do know that if you treat boat customers like they feel they should be treated you will go broke and if you treat them any other way you will go broke. Sort of a lose/lose situation lately.

i recently repowered with a zuki df 300 4-stroke,, april 2007 , Chris Crocker was the salseman this deal was done on a hand-shake, no money down, no loan approval, Crocker keep my updated during the process and even sold my old yammy for me !
this will be a good move for contender they have an honest salseman that goes fishing and hunting !
