My Boat Buying Experience
Make: all

Scott, Kurt,

I just wanted to send a short email with feedback on my experience buying my first boat;

I told my wife last week, “I am thinking about buying a boat.” I expected her to say, “Don’t do that!” but instead she said, “You should. It would be fun.” We decided to go to Fishtales have lunch and then go over to your dealership to inquire about boat ownership and how it works. I sure didn’t expect to buy a boat Saturday! I am a novice and just wanted to start the learning process.

I put my head in the door and Scott was talking with another customer, maybe an employee but he immediately greeted us with a smile and said, “I will be right with you!”. Scott came out and asked how he could help? He was never “salesy”, he was direct, honest and to the point. He asked questions before he made statements, didn’t seem like a desperate salesman, was extremely professional, knew his stuff and before I knew it he let me buy a boat!

“People hate to be sold but love to buy.” Jeffrey Gitomer

My wife is so excited, the boat is in my monthly budget which includes insurance, slip and maintenance. I bought a much nicer boat than I expected and to my surprise when I posted it on Facebook a good friend of mine and lifetime boater replied with a picture saying he just bought the same boat! Scott made me look like an experienced buyer. I felt like I was dealing with a consultant looking out for my interest, guiding me with information to make a good decision.

I am an owner in a sales and management company, have published a sales book, taught 1000’s of sales people, bought many things over the years such as houses, cars etc. I have had some good experiences and some not so good. I used Scott and my experience in my sales meeting Monday on how a professional sales rep can use questions, knowledge and a no pressure style to close the deal on the spot by letting someone buy and not “selling” them something.

You guys are a class act and I appreciate you and look forward to picking up my boat tomorrow! Scott, I hope you had a great birthday and I will see you tomorrow…

Good Memories!

Customer Testimonial:

We had a great day on Saturday!  We are breaking in the motor per your instructions. We got off the lake at about 6:00.  The boat is a blast! The folding roof is very practical and cool! The boat is extremely well made. This boat will help contribute to many good memories  for my family!

Thank you for everything thing you did to make this one of the best buying experiences in my life!

How do I order another table? Do I go through your parts department?

Thanks again!

Excellent Service!
Make: Moomba

Testimonial: “I want to thank your staff for an excellent job in repairing my Moomba. Troy and his group did a first class job in discussing what was wrong with my son. They kept me informed about the progress and covered each repair. Troy is a true professional and my family appreciates the work you did for us. Although you are located two hours from where we keep the boat, we will drive right by the other dealer, which is 20 minutes away, and come visit you! Every interaction with your employees has been a great experience and I highly recommend your company to anybody interested in buying a boat and keeping it in top condition!”

Friendly Sales!
Make: Moomba

Testimonial: “When I got to Atlanta Marine, it was like a weight lifted off me. Not only did I fall in love with the Moomba right away but your friendly way of selling made me feel right at home. I have been in sales for 4 yrs and I know all the tricks of the trade, and you did not try any of them on me. You guys were very straight forward with me. I am so excited about my boat and I will always pass your names on for recommendations to anyone and everyone who I meet. Once again, thank you for making me feel at home, and when it is time to upgrade, I will be back!”

Pleasant Experience!
Make: Bennington

Customer Service To A Whole New Level!
Make: Bennington

Testimonial: “Atlanta Marine puts the fun back in boat shopping!! My wife and I felt right at home as soon as we walked through the doors. Kurt and the whole sales team went above and beyond the competition. Thank you guys for being honest and straight forward. Troy and the entire service department deserve the most credit. They take customer service to a whole new level! Our experience did not end once we took delivery of our boat. A member of their staff rode with us to the marina and helped get the boat in her new home. We will pass your name to anyone looking for a new boat and I will be back when it is time to upgrade. Thanks so much!!!! ”

Loving Every Minute!
Make: Supra

Testimonial: “My fiance and I want to thank you (specifically Lisa and Tim) for an awesome experience dealing with Atlanta Marine. Honestly, we went to the boat show to strictly look at the Malibu line but absolutely fell in love w/ the 24’SSV Gravity Games. There really was no comparison between the two comparable models…price, features, luxury, etc. After putting our deposit down at the show to take advantage of the dealer incentives, we thought the day to take delivery would never come. Well, it did come and we’re loving every minute of it!! We’re on the lake as much as possible and have logged about 30 hours so far. I would highly reccommend anyone looking for a quality, luxury wakeboard boat call Atlanta Marine!! ”

Worth The Trip!
Make: Moomba

Testimonial: “My family and I want to thank you for all of your assistance at the Atlanta Boat show. It was definitely worth the 5 hour trip!! We are very excited about the order and cannot wait for your call to tell us to return to Atlanta to pick up our new LS. You can be assured that we will tell everyone we speak to on the lake (and I am sure with a boat as pretty as the one we ordered it will be MANY) where we got such great service. You are already known on Deerpoint Lake in Panama City (it was an Air Force pilot who told us about you) and because we are both 5 hours away from the Orlando dealer and Atlanta Marine we will tell them to visit Atlanta Marine! The show was also a great place to compare all of the other manufacturers products there and it just reinforced what we already knew- we are getting a Great Boat at a great price. We spent some time in the MasterCraft area and met with the factory representative there. We spoke to him about our 1975 Stars and Stripes and about his products. We told him that they still make a great boat and when he asked if we were purchasing a new boat we said “yes we just ordered a Moomba as it was the best value for the money. He said something along the lines of “I don’t blame you or I understand” and did not once try to talk us out of it. Didn’t matter we loved the decision we made and my wife even surprised me by ordering a Z-Cargo Bimini top, her the one wanting to save money! We also want to thank Tim, he has been nothing but nice and helpful with us. Again Thanks and we look forward to seeing you and Tim soon!!!! ”
