Default 4 years to get a Powerplay, is this true??

I have been looking at the Powerplays built in Florida and heard from someone that some guy has waited four years and still has not got his boat?? Any info would be appreciated. I know they are a good boat but a little concerned about even thinking about depositing after hearing that.

True story. This is what I have been attempting to help people with. With all the other great Offshore Performance Powerboats out there, why would anyone even consider doing business with this guy?! There is a 38' PP deal that was consumated in July of 2000 & has never been delivered! This guy is fit to be tied to put it mildly. Another 38' customer, a wealthy elderly gentleman from Ohio, contracted in Febuary of 2002 & has yet to get delivery! Life is short. I hope he gets his boat before he expires himself?! There are others...But I hope everyone gets the point! Ed

I would be hesitant to buy a new one also...............I have a '97 that I love and it's alot cheaper than new!!!!!

Hi DAN, yes that was me that you talked to on the phone last week. thanks for the info on the boat. (Dan reads all these posts)

No offense Risk Taker, but now and then I think the board has to give new members a little credit when they ask questions like this (and I realize there have been some people in the past just out to cause a problem with no basis). This board is a great source of information, but it does seem like we have the immediate tendency to run new people off, when in my opinion, they are often asking the right questions. It wasn't that long ago that if anyone spoke negatively of Powerplay they were immediately attacked, and now look where the people are that never got the advice not to buy. Thanks to this board, Powerplay is on the top of my list with one other brand to pick up used. Awesome boats, but not worth the headaches of plunking down money to buy new and wondering if you're ever going to get a boat.

4 YEARS?
Is that an exaggeration?
How could it possibly take 4 years?

Let me guess, he also told you that everything that he reads on here is crap and that all his x employees are theives and stole from him?

.
FYI...
Dan hasn't mentioned a word about anything you are talking about. I was at the Miami show this year looking for a trailer for the 33' powerplay I just bought. I was talking to 2 specific trailer manufacturers about details and price for a new trailer.

Then I talked to Dan (at his booth) and he flat out lied to me about what I can get (options on the trailer) and the price. Dan said I couldn't get the options that I wanted unless I ordered the trailer from him--and only him. That's funny, because I talked to both the trailer manufacturers before I went to talk to Dan. They didn't even want his business, because of his bad reputation. Then I asked Dan about the swimstep on the back of the 33' at the show and he said he didn't remember the manufacturer's name and I could only get it from him.

He was also trying to jack up the price on both of these items alot! I can understand making a doller, but don't flat out lie to customers to make money or they won't come back. He was overloading the B.S. meter!!! He does build a great boat though.
