Scott Shogren is a big fan of Checkmate (like you), and Doug Smith at Checkmate is a big fan of Shogren Performance Marine. It appears to be a good a paring.

There just aren't many builders of single-engine entry-level, affordable sportboats.

Default Checkmate

Thank you.

We are very excited and believe Doug and his team have done alot in very short order with Checkmate. Our first three new boats will all be in before the end of the year.

Regards,

Scott Shogren

I also feel the same way, the boats at Checkmate have recieved IMO some needed new grafics and just a few small details that are now standard instead of options. my first Checkmate was a 1997 253 and i now own a 2008 ZT280. Checkmate has a great forum and tons of knowledge of the boats on the forum website. i think its over 50 yrs of building boats . I bought all my 5 boats new and cant say i ever had any real problems. For a quality new built boat in that price range there really is not much else available. 10 yr hull warranty is great also .

The ZT275 and the ZT350 looks like the old Baja models. They look great!

Congadulations Shogren and Checkmate! I feel this was a great pairing. Everyone agrees checkmate can build a great boat. And we all know shogren can market and sell boats!
