Default Is Every Salesmen/broker A Scum Bag?

If your a honest boat salesman or broker please don't read any further!!!


The last 3 times I've bought a boat has been a horrifying experience. I've changed people that I've dealt with and it seems eveytime I get fuc#ed in the a$$. I don't even know who I can trust anymore!!! Maybe I'm to nice (or to fuc#in stupid to realize whats going on. Thank god i posted a thread here and some of the oso members shot me straight. If I'd of known about this site years ago I'd probably of saved alot of money.. So does anyone recommend anyone who is a stand up guy.... I'm sorry to anyone I offend, i'm just pissed off.

You would be surprised. Not just boat brokers. I get countless calls from people who know people asking about mortgage clauses (which they are first hearing about at closings). "Is it legal for them to tell me that I cannot refinance or sell the house for two years unless I pay them 6 months interest ? " Yes, but they should have told you that to begin with and not at closing !! I am doing a loan for this couple that did not know they had signed into a 2/28 (28 years variable 2 years fixed) and their taxes and insurance were not included in the mtg. Nieve, yes. But they trusted the broker. They were about to lose their house. Unfortunately now adays you have to be very, very careful who you deal with. The best thing you can do is inform yourself as much as you can before hand. Sorry about the rambling its just that I hate to see people get screwed like that. It gives brokers in general a bad name. The board should guide you to someone honest. Good luck brother...

Depends on the person,
I sell boats because I love them. Boating is a hobby to me and my 2nd love my wifes my first. Most people that sell boats out of love of the sport are usally down to earth. The guys you have to watch out for are the ones that will sell there souls for a sale.

When you flunk out of being a used car salesperson then you go down to being a boat salesperson..........this has been my observation and experience.

The salesperson who is successful (Terry Sobo) will always look long term. The ones that bounce around to much are usually not stable, they are looking to sell quick and fast, and usually thats where they get into trouble, too many false lies, overselling you BS on the product, letting you hear what they want you to believe. I always try to look at the track record of the salesperson, where they have been for the last 10-15 years. I found once you get along with your salesperson and or dealership, you will make some friends. Also not beating them up every time for the last nickel will go along way in service and repeat business when you go to buy again. Remember time is money, its always a pleasure to do business over the phone, or just walk in and order a new truck and be out of their in 1 hour knowing what you purchaced, and what your trade was worth. I just take poeple for what they are worth, there are alot of good salespeople out there, and people trying to do good, unfortunatly its always the rotten apple that spoils the Pie. Jeff
