Thumbs up Truly proud to be a Velocity Owner

I absolutely love my VR1..does everything I want it to, and looks damn good doing it...Velocity goes above and beyond in the customer service department...bought this 02 boat used..called the factory to order a shirt and hat...new license plate holder and floaty for the key chain arrived for free...then while I was on the phone, Kenny jumped on to make sure my info was correct for any future get togethers as I live somewhat close to the factory. I was informed by him that Velocity pays 100.00 towards any poker run you enter... total surprise...needless to say very happy with my purchase and after the sale care from the factory when I bought a second hand boat..could not be dealing with nicer people who care about the people representing their product. Any and all questions I have had through the sale or after have been graciously and quiclky been responded to. Needless to say when it is time to go bigger..I know where to look first!

Congrats on your new Velocity. I had a 280 ThroughBred, back in day, and Steve and crew were always there to help with anything.

Steve, Kim and Kenny are truly great people that we've been fortunate enough to work closely with and can call great friends.

Everytime I go up to the factory to work on the weekend Kenny is already there working on a customer boat, taking customer calls at any hour, gassing up a new sale or prepping a boat for delivery. It still suprises me when I get to the shop at 8am on Sunday and Kenny is already there. That's dedication! One of the coolest things I've experienced is being at the factory while Steve is working on a new boat and throwing around ideas on how he's going to set things up and the thought behind every feature. He's working on a completely new Bay Boat right now that should turn some heads by the end of the month. I know one thing, there won't be many other bay boats around that will outrun it!

One of the things I'm most excited about with finishing the boat is being a part of the Velocity family and meeting other Velocity owners at poker runs and fun runs. Seeing as I live in Naples too, we should certainly trade numbers and make it a habit of ripping up this coast together

Sounds the way I always thought it should be. It's a shame Nova isn't like that.

Glad to hear that your happy with your boat and the customer service at Velocity. I had a 280 a few yrs back as my first performance boat and really enjoyed it.
