skeeter bass boats


Recommended Posts

Has anyone checked out skeeters web site. I was looking at it earlier and it is great.  Watch the video of their boats, its one of the best boat manufactures web sites I've found.I have a gambler and will be the first to say that their website is by far the worst. Those new Skeeters sure look impressive.

I work in the auto industry. Marketing has everything to do with making or breaking a product.

I wouldn't base my next purchase on the commerical they show.. Marketing could sell anyone a boat with a 3 foot hole in the hull..If they had an unlimited budget. The best way is to experience the product first hand.

I think Lowe holds the #1 spot for Customer Satisfaction from NMMA.

Skeeter boats look really nice..But you pay for all that.. Just like lures..The more you pay..The better they catch fish as some would think..

I was going to post in the thread I started about "what type of boat to get" that I checked out Skeeter's website as well.  It was really nice that they had all of those videos available to watch.  They definitely persuaded me to go to the closest Skeeter dealership and take a look and maybe a drive.  I wish that other websites had more performance related video's to watch.  The ones that have videos like Ranger and Triton seem to focus on too much technical stuff in how the boat is manufactued?  I care about that, but to have the other vids would be nice as well.  

I found a couple of sites that have some video reviews of some Bass Boats...

www.boattest.com

and

www.goboatingamerica.com

...they have some decent videos and reviews.

I saw that site a while back, and I thought the floatation promo was a neat clip. It's not often that the space shuttle falls from the sky and riddles your boat with fist size holes, but I look up anymore when I hear a roar in the sky. There are alot of factors when chooseing a boat and if saftey is a big issue, I think it was a good way to demenstate some of it. I like what I have actually seen along side of them on the water, but if I hadn't the videos would help to attact my attention. I'm not looking for a new one boat right now, but if I was getting ready to fork out, that much green, on a new one. I imagine my nose print, would be all over their show room window, and the videos would have helped in getting me to that point.

I loved the one about the pain of owning/repairing a motor that somebody posted earier. :)

I just got back from the Skeeter dealership over here really close to my house.  I am impressed with these boats.  I thought when I saw that there was a dealership close to my house that they might have a couple of used Skeeters and the ability to order a new one if you want.... That wasn't the case though.  They had at least one new boat of every model except from the saltwater line.  I really liked this 2004 TZX 200 with the 3.1L V-Max 200 that they have.  Its brand new, never been off the showroom floor and its marked down to $26k due to it being the only 2004 they have left.  It's got all the bells and whistles.  The one thing I noticed was that the trolling motor pedal is not recessed like allot of the other new boat-makers are doing now.  The salesman told me that they have found that more people like to be able to move it around rather than having it recessed and fixed to one spot?  The salesman was really nice and all of the techs were really nice as well.  They have 5 Skeeter certified techs right there.   The one big plus is that this place is less than 10 minutes from my house.  It's just so freakin convenient.  The other thing that really got me to thinking Skeeter was that I was able to go for a ride with one of the salesman in a customers boat; the customer was there as well.  He has a 2005 ZX 250 with the freakin V-Max 300 HP, that sucker would flat out "get up and go".  The one thing that bothers me about these V-Max motors is that you can't fish with them in California because they are all two strokes.  Not that I go to Cali allot, but it would be nice to know that I could take my boat everywhere I went if I wanted to.  Anyway, I really was impressed with what I saw and heard today from Skeeter, I think they make a good product but again my frame of reference is more limited than allot of you guys.
