Default Sunsation,,, Pantera,, first class operations..

Currently shopping for a new 28 footer and both Jo and Sunsation have been tremendous. Nothing like being able to talk to the owner/builder of these boats and having them give you their personal cell phone numbers if you have any questions..

Just wanted to express my thanks to these guys.. They put themselves out here and tackle all the questions we could throw at them..

Dont mean to single these guys out as there are many other manufacturers who go out of their way to answer questions on this board...

Sunsation will be at the Chicago boat show this weekend. Let us know if you want something special. I have never been anything short of being totally impressed with their product. Try running your finger across one of their chines some day...

I stopped at the Sunsation Factory one day which is about 12 miles from my house. I was looking for a trim peice that goes around the cabin door on my 1989 Sunsation. The receptionist called Joe Shaldenbrad, one of the owners, and Joe and I went back into the shop and looked for a part that they have not used in years. He spends about 30 minutes with me looking for an absolete part for a 14 year old boat, then says that there may be one at another building. The next day he calls me at work and says no luck, but says he has another idea that will look nice.
Not only has my 1989 held up incredibly, but I can still get factory support like that. These are first class custom boats that are made and backed up by first class people. Good luck on your decision.

I bought a 2004 288 a few months ago.

Tomorrow I go see it and the new MitcherT paint job and get the bolster seat in the exact position I want.

The guys at Sunsation are great!
