My boat is over 10 years old and I'm the 3rd owner. Bob still takes my calls on his cell phone, returns my emails and gives me advice when I ask for it.

Just this past week he gave me some very sound advice that I take it to heart. He didn't give me advice because he wanted me to spend $$$, he was actually trying to help me make the correct decision. You have to respect a guy like that!

If I had the funds to purchase this boat I would in a heart beat. I wouldn't be worried about customer support.

For what it's worth......If I were in the market for a new boat and had the coin, the new Chief would be mine!

I know Bobby and crew put their hearts and souls into this boat.

Let's get something straight, I have NEVER questioned Mr. Saccenti's product, ethics, boatbuilding process, etc.....
As I stated before, I was merely asking a question, not judging, not implying anything, just asking a question.

That's great he gives you excellent customer service! That is rare in the boating industry

Great customer service is not the same as a boats market value and the stability of a manufacturer.

I think you meant to say that Powerquest is out of Business for sure. Powerplay is still up....isn't it?

Powequest is alive and well. Powerplay is out of business. The molds are still around though.
