Default High Performance Boat dealers?

Who are the top rated dealers now? Just wondering who has the best reputation and moves the most boats?

Performance Boat Brokerage at LOTO is moving inventory pretty quick. Most of it is high dollar stuff as well.

It sure seems that Performance Boat Brokerage at Lake of the Ozarks sells alot of stuff. Everything from "smaller" boats to the high dollar stuff. Besides being "just a broker" they are also have a full shop. I have never heard a bad word from anybody that has done business with them.

While every performance-boat dealer—every business of any kind for that matter—will have unsatisfied customers, the two dealers I consistently hear the high praise for are Pier 57 and Shogren Performance.

I know there are other strong dealers out there (probably some of those mentioned in this thread). But the ones I "hear" (key word, since I've never done business with either of them) about most are the two I mentioned.

Performance Boat Brokerage on Lake of the Ozarks would be my opinion. Brett has offered to help me even though I never bought from him. At the very least I'd go for a dealer that has boats actually on the water. Seems like an easy way to run it... Get a survey !!!

Performance Boat Brokerage and Shogren are most likely close to the top of the list.

Been looking for a few months,I have talked to most , the one that took the time was Scott from Shogren's . If he had what I wanted , we would come to a deal.
I think he's realistic with pricing also.
I also hate all these boats for sale with no prices,then you call and the prices change day to day .

I think Scott is very realistic on his prices, but some people who broker their boats through him are not. If a boat is only worth 75k and the owner owes 125k, good luck convincing the owner to list it for 80k
