One time we went to mariners cove after being at the Hustler Factory. We pull in and a sales man comes out and wants to show us a boat. They had top 2-3 Fountains. The guy couldnt find the freaking 35 that was sitting right in front of him. It was pretty funny. Did he really think he would sell us Fountain after we had just left the Hustler factory?? Thats the thing with Fountain they have so many crummy little dealers all over the place.

Got the same treatment looking at their junk OL.

You should see some of the people that attend the show if you want to talk about filthy.I can remember drunks missing the mens room door and knocking my booth down,2 "FRIENDS" getting into a brawl and knocking over most of the plants in a dealers booth,and my favorite of all was some lowlife using the head in a SUNSEEKER on display at the show.

I imagine, as also posted, there are also horror stories from the sales side too.

But I totally agree, if they are willing to bring a $100,000+ "Brand New" boat to the show and have it represented in that condition,
Does anyone care to guess how the boat is being treated at the dealership when no-one is watching???

I really can't say anything bad about Trenton Marine bought my 292 there would have bought a Fountain but Coty marine was like your exeperince with Trenton.
Trenton Marine just got Fountain Back when Coty lost it so I was probably not their boat.But I agree the should have been spotless

For some reason I seem to find a lot of cocky sales people at the nyc boat show over the years. Almost bought a new donzi there a few years back and they were represented very well plus I was dealing with a rep from the factory along with the dealer. The go fast category always gets looked over pretty good by all buyers I believe and usually show the most bling of the show. I know by the end of the week the sales people are wiped out and the reps are shot and they have seen all the drunks and pretty women they need for a while but to have an attitude the first day of a show isn't a good sign. Glad to see Coty not representing fountain!
