I am really surprised that nobody has mentioned that BRP has purchased Alumacraft boats. Also, Yamaha marine will no longer supply outboard motors to them.
I agree with Prop.
Alumacraft has shut down their factory
Thanks to c-19
I buy from the cheapest and have any service done at the most local dealer. Never been an issue for me.
Third best out of 4. Closer for me also, but had a bad experience with them on last boat. Maybe I'm jinxed when it comes to new rigs.
Waltereye sr how was M&J prices curious because there close to home.
Sounds like I made a good choice. Have had my share of poor luck with boats, and all bought new. This will be my last boat so, we'll see
Don’s Marine is a prime example of why you don’t always go with the best price. Service after the sale is worth more than a lower price. I have bought many boats over the past 50 years and I only had two really bad experiences. One was Main Marine and Ski in Racine, who went out of business and the other was Don’s Marine who should not still be in business in my opinion.
Actually, I did get a price from Dons marine and they were the lowest price, but ended up going with Skipper Buds. Also got prices from Amherst marine and M&J's
I would buy a Alumacraft with a Tohatsu on it before buying a boat from Don’s Marine.
I bet it comes down to what the Dealer sells, Dons Marine in Lodi for example does carry Alumnacraft and carrys Skeeter which is owned by Yamaha , so probably if you carry a brand owned by or has partnership with a particular motor brand , prices will be different .
