"The Team at

"Went to J&K thinking we would have to trade in our 24ft pontoon with a 115 HP Mercury outboard. Talked with salesman and after describing what we were told be" the last mechanic (we needed to find another motor) the salesman told us he would look into fixing the 2001 motor before deciding to trade boat in. The service department was very professional and cofident that they could fix the motor, which had run poorly since we bought the boat in 2013. runs better We were told that they would need a week to get to the boat and then we got a call saying they felt they could have it fixed in less than a week. Got it back in less than a week and it No stalling,great acceleration and purrs at idle.

We purchased a used boat and trailer from this
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
on Sunrise Highway in Islip Terrace. I originally found his for sale ad on a website. I called on a Sunday afternoon, and was helped by a
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
on the phone. He said the boat was still for sale and we can come in anytime to look at it. We went immediately that afternoon.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
was so professional. He advised us of other boats he had, and listened to our concerns. My husband and I were unsure of exactly which boat we wanted, so
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
asked us to make an offer on both boats, and then to think about what we really wanted. NO PRESSURE AT ALL!!!! GREAT TO WORK WITH HIM!!! Both of our offers were accepted within a few hundred dollars. I was surprised that this dealership did not try to rip us off. We had been searching for many months, and had some awful experiences. NOT HERE AT
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
!!! Again, no pressure tactics, and they were honest and fair.
We finally decided on which boat we wanted, after many, many, calls. Each of our frantic calls were taken with such professionalism. Even I would have thought enough already if I was on their end of the phone. But no, they took each call and answered all of my questions without a hint of annoyance. Again, very professional, and down to earth people who work here!
Now it came for our mechanic to test out the boat. Due to it being the busy season, it was very hard to hire a mechanic to go to the
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
and check out the boat. Everyone I called had a problem in scheduling. I frantically called
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
and the owner,
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
, picked up the phone. He was AMAZING!!!!! He had such patience for all my problems!!!! We spoke quite a while, and he understood my problem. He was even willing to trailer the boat to a mechanics shop so we can get it tested!!! Well, after many calls to different mechanics, we were still having problems hiring someone. Since my husband always worked on all our previous boats and cars, I knew I could trust him to inspect this 3.0 Merc Engine.
I called Mr.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
back and he said that his mechanic will inspect EVERYTHING on the boat with my husband, so we did not miss anything - and of course at no charge. My husband went for a bay test with
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
's Mechanic, then went back to their shop. They went over each and every aspect of the engine - checking it out for clear fluids, no foam, no oil leaks, taking off something on the back of the motor, and many other things that I didn't really understand what they were doing. They did the exact same check list that the pre-inspection mechanic was going to do!! EVEN A COMPRESSION TEST WAS DONE!!!! Again, all of this free of charge!!!!!
Mr.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
, owner, just wanted to make sure that we were totally confident in what we were purchasing, and did everything in his power to help us out.
After we finalized the payment and purchased this boat, it was time to arrange to take it home. When we were discussing when we could actually have it, Mr.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
said he needed a morning to detail it. WHAT???? A used boat - and you were going to detail it and clean it????? I was so surprised that they would do this. The boat was detailed and it looked beautiful!!!!
Also, I do not want to forget, that they also included a full coast guard package in this sale. This coast guard package was brand new. I am not sure if any other dealers do this, but our last used boat did not include a brand new package - we got previous owners left over items!!!
The day we were suppose to take this vehicle home, we still did not have a trailer hitch - due to our Jeep dealership being unable to fit us in. Instead of us going crazy to find a way to trailer this boat to our home,
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
drove this boat RIGHT TO OUR DRIVEWAY!!!!! We could not have asked for more!!!!
I cannot say enough about this dealership. The owner, Mr.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
, his sister
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
(for all the paperwork), his son
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
, and ESPECIALLY the two mechanics are fantastic!!!! They really are there for their customers!!!!
In my opinion, I would recommend this facility highly. I cannot find any negative words to say. Personally, I feel that you could not find anyone more trusting, sincere, professional, and loyal to their customers!!!!
THANK YOU

Female that answered the phone seemed like she didn't want anything to do with it and said they would end up bringing it in anyways. Well I didn't want to bring it in hence the reason for a mobile request. Unprofessional!

Our experience with CLM was not good. After being told by the staff (
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
) that we could return the rented boat early and would not get charged if weather is terrible, the owner (
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
) refused and claimed that was never discussed. We wasted $250 on a day that our family was not able to use the boat at all. We obviously do not recommend doing business with CLM. If you do not have another option, we recommend using extreme caution with them and ensure you have all verbal agreements in writing.

Sailing into the sunset with a catamaran in Key West is an experience everyone should have on their bucket list. Especially if they are going to do it with
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
who seem to be the Pros and have gotten this down so good that it leaves you with an unforgettable memory of your vacation. This place was recommended by our Bed & Breakfast staff and we were fortunate that they had a booth right in front of our place. They actually have many booths well situated throughout this island of paradise called Key West. The packages they offer are many and cater to almost anything your little heart desires. We were a party of three and were convinced that this would end our vacation with a very memorable feeling that we could take home with us- and we were right. Our price included an all inclusive buffet and drinks as well. The
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
along with the staff's enthusiasm was very contagious and were always attentive and professional. The live band was also uplifting and made it feel even more enjoyable. Our island cruise lasted approximately two hours and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We danced, ate and saw the sunset over Key West - it didn't get any better than this. Next time we are in town, I certainly won't hesitate on making reservations with them again. Maybe we'll go snorkeling and swim with the dolphins or hire them for a private sail around the island - yes they have those packages too. Well, it's never too late to take a vacation so make sure you include this fun and exciting attraction on your to do list next time you are in Key West. Remember that it's always 5 O'clock somewhere - but what better way to enjoy it like Key West time.

is a kind of hard to get a hold of, but for good reason- He's busy! I contacted
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
about a week ago to get our 21 CC Sea Hunt bottom paint, detail and seasonal service. Our boat didn't have bottom paint on it; but after recently moving to a house on the water, we wanted to keep our boat in water.
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
went over the process of applying bottom paint in detail, talked about the service, etc. We dropped the boat off Monday and picked it up Friday. They did a great job. I would highly recommend!

Took my Porsche to have the top replaced. Pick up the car and the next day the dashboard stated "Top Out of Alignment." Called Porsche and they said to not drive the car with the top down. Porsche serviced the problem and stated that
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
did not install the top properly. Went back to
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
to inform him. He made a few adjustments as I was getting wrinkles on the
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
. Told me to water the top and wait three days. No help. Went back to
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
where the owner would not stand behind his guarantee of work. Told me his could not afford to honor and to get a lawyer .I have reported
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
to the Better Business Bureau and the State Attorney general's office. Processor getting a lawyer

Skipper
Des Moines Boat Dealers Provider Name Locked
's is extremely disappointing. We bought a used boat from them in October, and it went into storage. After we received the boat in May we have been plagued with problems. It leaked, the engine and wire harness needed replacing, the depth gauge didn't work, and other gauges were broken. I had to continually call, email, and eventually have a meeting with upper management to get it fixed. In fact a month and a half later, it still isn't fixed, and they are still ignoring our calls. If they would be cooperative, I wouldn't have to go through this, but I shouldn't have to spend my time and money to get a boat that works.
