Default Premier Motor Sprots in Wayland, MI

Does anyone know anything about them? Does anyone happen to be close to them that could run by and take some pics of a boat that they have and look it over for me?

Thanks
Chris

I've never done business with them (they sell Checkmate and Velocity), but I have heard nothing but good things about them. Several people I know (including Check300 from this board) have bought boats there and had good experiences. Unfortunately it is no where near my house so I can't help with the pics. You might ask Check300 as he is down that way often.

I live 5 minutes from them, I was just there this morning. Let me know what you are looking at and I'll get a pic for you.

They also sell SUNSATION.

They are great people, I do a lot of paintwork for them, and have done all of their own personal boats. They are top notch to deal with and I have never hears anything but good about them, (and I have a lot of connections)

Hey Mitch does the T stand for Tocco
Cool new website, My 32' makes it look good but I didn't see any pictures of my 28' on there.

Take care,
Lee

I've heard they're excellent with Bravo One drives too. I just had a friend take one of his Bravos drives to Premier and they took it apart, inspected everything from top to bottom, told my friend everything looked very good, re-assembled it and only charged him $120. He took his boat out since then and thus far NO problems! He is one satisfied customer. He said they were honest and very fair in their pricing. Sounds like a real good place to do business with.

Mitcher, can you shoot me your number? I'd like to get an estimate on painting the deck of my boat and perhaps some graphics. Thanks

KAAMA, too bad OUR friend threw his back out this week!!! Sucks!!! But I understand his boat is as good as new. That's good news.

They used to sell Fountains. I went in there a couple years ago looking at boats. They were great, showed me around, and I looked at a few boats they had there. I wound up buying my Fountain elsewhere, but they are closer to me, so I went to buy some parts at a later date. I walked in and THEY REMEMBERED ME. He recalled I was in looking at Fountains and what I do for a living even before I really mentioned anything. I was so shocked. This has NEVER happened to me anywhere. I ordered my parts, etc for my Fountain. They got them for me even though they stopped selling Fountain at that time. I saw them at a later date at the Grand rapids boat show, and he still remembered. Always like stopping to chat with them.

Shortly after the quit selling beak boats, they picked up the Sunsation line. Great group of guys. And it sure seems they sell lots of Checkmates. I saw one Checkmate Mitcher T painted. He does great work, too.

Based on my limited experience with them, I'd highly recommend them.
